Ingredients

  • 1 pizza crust
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce see my recipe, use your own or buy pre-made
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 Boar's Head Natural Casing Pepperoni sliced
  • 1 link sweet Italian sausage casing removed
  • 6 oz fresh mozzarella cheese thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. **Note: Whenever I make homemade pizza, I make two whole pizzas. I find this is the best use of the ingredients and pizza dough. So, if you'd like, just double the amounts above for two pizzas. You probably won't even have to buy hardly any extra ingredients.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium-high heat. Cook Italian sausage until well-browned, making sure to break into bite-size pieces. Once browned, allow to cool. Set aside for later.
  4. Spread the tomato sauce over the pizza dough, leaving about 1/2 inch around the outside edge for the crust. Sprinkle sauce with oregano, basil, thyme, salt and pepper.
  5. Spread the mozzarella slices evenly across the pizza. Arrange the crumbled sweet Italian sausage and pepperoni slices over the mozzarella.
  6. Place the pizza into the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the crust edges are golden and the cheese is melted. After taking the pizza out of the oven, allow it to cool for a few minutes so that the cheese has time to set. Slice pizza and serve
