This was in a new Pizza on the Grill magazine only I made it in the oven (rained out). VERY good pizza – all components. Smile

Sausage & Sweet Pepper Pizza

Little Italy’s favorite street sandwich—Italian sausage and peppers—comes to life on top of this crispy, smoky pizza crust. This way you get more toppings and less bread. Now that’s amore!

1 pound sweet or hot Italian sausage, taken out of the casings, if necessary
1/4 cup uncooked grits or polenta, for rolling the dough
1 ball prepared pizza dough, at room temperature
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup Tuscan Red Sauce or Crushed Tomato Sauce (posted below)
1/4 cup pickled sweet and hot peppers, sliced
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Monterey jack cheese
1 teaspoon B&E Sprinkle-icious Spice Blend or favorite spice blend (posted below)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Place the sausage in a large, heavy skillet. Sauté over medium heat, breaking up any large pieces, until fully cooked. Alternatively, grill the sausage in its casing and slice before using. Drain on paper towels and reserve for topping.

Preheat the grill, roll out and shape the dough, and grill the first side of the crust per the Master Instructions for gas or for charcoal (see Notes). Use tongs to transfer it to a peel or rimless baking sheet. Flip the crust to reveal the grilled side

Spread the entire surface with the sauce. Top with the sausage and peppers, then sprinkle with the cheeses.

Finish grilling the pizza per the Master Instructions (see notes below).

Remove from the grill, sprinkle with the spice blend, and season with salt and pepper. Slice and serve immediately.
