Wow is this good. We had pizza night at my house and this one went first.
2 Lbs Mushrooms, sliced
1 Lb Ground Sausage
Pizza Dough, I used store bought
1 Lb Gruyere Cheese, shredded
Salt & Pepper
Oregano or Italian Seasoning
Preheat oven to 450º
In a medium skillet, brown the sausage meat. Drain the meat and set aside.
In another skillet, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and saute the mushrooms until they are tender. Salt to taste
There are two ways that I like to cook pizza at home. I have used both and they are equally good.
Stretch the dough into a 9-inch round pizza pan or a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with oregano or Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Bake until golden brown.
Once the crust is removed from the oven, top with sausage meat, mushrooms and cheese. Return the pizza to the oven and cook until the cheese is melted.
Place a pizza stone or an inverted baking sheet on the lowest oven rack. Let the oven heat up to 450º – 500º.
Lightly flour a pizza peal. If you are not using a pizza peel, a piece of parchment paper will work fine. Stretch the dough and lay it on either the peel or parchment paper. Brush the dough with olive oil and sprinkle on either oregano or Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Top with the sausage meat, mushrooms and cheese.
If you are using the peel, slide the pizza onto the stone or baking sheet in the oven. If you are using the parchment paper, put the pizza with the parchment paper on the stone or baking sheet. Bake until the crust is golden brown.
