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.
