We put together a hearty pizza of spicy sausage, spinach and artichokes. And Michael will be coming home for lunch to tomorrow for leftovers.
Here's what you'll need...
2 packages of pizza crust mix
1 can diced tomatoes (drained)
1/2 bag baby spinach leaves
5 artichoke hearts chopped
1/2 sweet onion sliced
1/4 lb spicy sausage
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons olive oil
Let's get started...
1. Prepare your pizza crusts according to their instructions. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
3. Grease your pizza pan and press the dough into the pan. Bake for about 8 minutes.
This is the obvious secret that is changing my pizza making abilities.
7. Remove dough from the oven. Apply a light coating of olive oil to the outer rim of the crust.
11. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Broil for about 2 minutes to develop cheese.
Every family needs a pizza night every now and then. Pizza night was such a treat when we were younger (even a reward for reading #BookIt) and now we get to have fun with trying lots of different topping combinations. Now that I have this crust thing down, pizza may be making some additional appearances in our weekly menu.
