Homemade Pizza with Game Sausage and Veggies


Difficulty Rating: 0
Consumption Context: A great meal to enjoy with FRIENDS!

I would consider making homemade pizza MULTI-TASKING.  You are simultaneously cleaning out your fridge while preparing a scrumptious meal that appears innovative yet down home.

Last night Mark and I had friends and family over for dinner.  I wanted to make something that didn’t take too much attention or effort AND I had a bunch of leftover veggies and Antelope sausage.  (Lightbulb) Pizza!  So Easy!!!

These are the steps I took last night to prepare pizza for eight close friends.

What you Need:

Pizza Crusts – I bought 2 packages of dough and 2 precooked crusts (insurance)
Cheese – I like pizza without red sauce so I opted for Mozzarella and Ricotta Cheese (to add moisture)
Herbed/Spiced Olive Oil – I spread olive oil on the pizza crusts before topping and flavored the oil with garlic, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper
Basil – picked fresh from the garden…just great added flavor
Assorted Veggies – Mushrooms, Zucchini, Red Onion, and Orange Bell Pepper…no longer threatening to host mold in my fridge.
Game Sausage – I used Antelope Sausage here…..but ANY game meat would work as long as it has some good flavor and a KICK!

Cooking Steps:

1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2.  Place pizza stone (if you have one) in oven while preheating –
you certainly don’t need a pizza stone…but we got one as a wedding present and I really wanted to use it.
3.  Bake uncooked dough crusts for a few minutes before topping
4.  Add toppings to precooked crusts –
Avoid overloading with toppings as that will cause crust to become a little soggy.
5.  Bake on either stone or baking sheet until pizzas look and smell done!
6.  Pat yourself on the back…that was EASY, PRETTY, and you used GAME!

I served the pizza with a fresh salad of mixed greens, nectarines, and avocado…..
