Sausage, Pepper and 2-Cheese Pizza


  • 6 ounces sausage (turkey or pork), removed from casings
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 cup Basic Marinara, homemade or store-bought
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup provolone cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • 1 large pizza crust, pre-baked (I use Boboli 100% whole wheat thin crust)


  1. Brown sausage in lightly oiled skillet; add peppers and sauté over medium-high heat, 3-4 minutes, or until slightly seared but still crunchy.
  2. Place pizza crust on a baking stone or cookie sheet. Mix marinara sauce with tomato paste and spread evenly over crust, leaving 1/2-inch border. Top with sausage and pepper mixture. Then sprinkle with cheeses and oregano.
  3. Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese melts and crust in lightly browned. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
