Turkey Italian Sausage, Pepperoni, Mushroom, Olive, and Jalapeno Pizza

I had plans with a girlfriend for dinner so I made a quick pizza for my husband and two little mini pepperoni pizzas for my children for dinner.  My husband finds this particular pizza dough and sauce a little bland for his tastes so he likes it if  I season the dough with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper.  He also likes it if I add a bit more sea salt and freshly cracked pepper as well as some crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce to give it more flavor.  I cooked up some turkey Italian sausage before layering it on the pizza along with turkey pepperoni, fresh mushroom slices, black olives, and some fresh jalapenos for a kick.  Using store bought dough and sauce makes this meal so simple and easy to put together and cooks really quickly.  My husband was thrilled that he didn’t have to cook dinner!

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Remove the dough from the bag & let it sit on a floured surface for 20 minutes.  This helps the dough become easier to work with.

Remove the turkey Italian sausage from their casings then cook it in a skillet over medium high heat until cooked through and in crumbles.

Spread dough on a pizza sheet that has been coated with cooking spray and a sprinkle of corn meal; season with seas salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Mix some crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce, if desired, and mix well. Spoon the sauce on the dough and spread evenly. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese all over followed by the sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, and jalapeno slices.

Place pizza into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven then slice and serve immediately. Enjoy.

    I made homemade pizza for my family last night, and now I am wishing that I had put sausage on our pizzas instead of pepperoni! This looks so delicious, Pam!

    How do you roll out your crust into the perfect circle. I always struggle with this. I love to buy the dough and roll it out myself (love Trader Joes kind) but it is always frustrating and time consuming to get it into a cirlce. I find using a roller is too hard. I find using my hands to stretch it makes for a lop sided crust.

      Remove the dough from the bag & let it sit on a floured surface for 20 minutes. This helps the dough become easier to work with. I use my hands to form a ball and it doesn’t always turn out perfectly even but I find it’s easier than trying to roll it out. I hope this helps.

    What a great combo of flavors! Looks delicious, Pam. I would kick up the flavor in the pizza sauce with dried oregano and basil, too.

    I love the idea of seasoning the crust for more flavor! We can’t have pizza without red pepper flakes!

    I love all the toppings you chose for this pizza. And it’s so great that you’re using turkey sausage and turkey pepperoni. Will have to try this, especially since I just bought a pizza stone :)

    Wow. The ingredients chosen are great…I think the only thing missing is a homemade crust. I have made crusts before and it makes all the difference! :) Love the great ideas. Keep it up.
