Day Late -- Dollar Short

Well - here's my entry for Channon's Pizza Party. I've been talking about making this ever since she posted about the pizza party. Well - I finally did. It was as good as I remembered although I punted through it this time - I couldn't find boboli pizza crust when we were grocery shopping so I used pita bread and made individual pizzas - worked great. Carmelized Onion & Sausage Pizza 2t olive oil 3 onions thinly sliced (I used 1) 1T sugar 1t dried oregano 1/4t salt 1 red bell pepper, seeded & thinly sliced (used green) 1/4 pound sweet Italian sausage (I used bulk sausage) 1 prebaked whole-wheat pizza crust 1C fat-free ricotta cheese 1/2C shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese 2T grated Parmesan cheese (skipped it this time) 2T sliced black olives Brown sausage. In another pan, heat oil, add the onions, sugar, oregano & salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften, add the bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally. Place the pizza crust on a baking sheet (I assembled mine on the cutting board and the placed them on a pre-heated baking stone). Spread the crust with the ricotta cheese, leaving a border. Top with the onion mixture, mozzarella cheese, sausage and Parmesan. Bake in a 450* oven until cheese is melted and bubbly, 10-12 minutes. Sprinkle with the olives and cut into 6 wedges.


  1. Pita bread for the pizza crust? Brilliant! I've got to try that.

  2. Yum!! And what a clever idea... I might have to try that for personal pizzas very soon.

  3. That looks so good. I usually make my crust in my bread machine, then I let Rob get creative with the toppings.

  4. Looks great on the pita bread!
