Today I'm participating in the New Friend Fridays Blog Hop at The Girl Creative and Trendy Treehouse. If you're stopping by for the first time, thank you so much! Each Friday I share a pizza creation and call it "friday night pizza night".
I had to make two pizzas because my picky-eater (my hubby) doesn't like mushrooms. He was pretty happy eating his own Meat-a-tarian pizza.
Over the last several Pizza Nights, I was trying to think outside of the box and come up with some interesting pizza creations. Some were brilliant, like the Meat-a-tarian and others were fails, like the Chicken Teriyaki. So this month I figured I give my family a break and try some "normal" pizzas. So that's what you'll be seeing this month.
Mushroom & Sausage Pizza is pretty straight forward. But to save some money (you know me!) I purchased some breakfast sausage on sale. I chose a regular flavor, not Sage, so I could tweak it by adding some ground fennel. Adding the fennel will make it taste like Italian Sausage without the price tag. I do this with ground turkey, ground beef and just about anything.
Mushroom & Sausage Pizza
1/2 to 1 cup pasta sauce
1-1/2 to 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
6 oz can sliced mushrooms (I like the canned mushrooms for pizza)
16 oz browned ground sausage with 2 teaspoons ground fennel
Prepare the pizza dough as directed. Spread the pasta sauce over the dough, top with mushrooms and sausage. Sprinkle evenly with mozzarella cheese and bake as directed.
Hope you have a great family night!
