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

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.

  1. 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!

  2. I was able to see your post today and on Friday without hitting refresh. I think you have the problems solved. Looking forward to seeing (and trying) your yummy recipes everyday!

  3. 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.

    1. 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.

  4. Pam, I emailed you a few weeks ago about being stuck on 1/27 with Google Chrome, but not any more! Now your site comes right up, no refreshing or going to other browsers required. Thank you!

  5. 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.
