Patti's Pizza

Patti Brown


I just love making my own pizza. I was using Boboli crust initially, but then I discovered Tiseo's frozen pizza dough, and found it to be superior, and less costly. I will sometimes use the Pillsbury pizza dough if the store doesn't have the Tiseo's, but for best results, I like to use Tiseo's. My son Marshall once called my pizza "hidden meat pizza" because I like to put the cheese over the Italian sausage. Everyone loves my pizza.

ground italian sausage
1/2 jar(s)
pizza sauce
8 oz
shredded mozarella
1 pkg
pepperoni slices
1 can(s)
mushroom pieces
1 pkg
frozen pizza dough


1Follow directions for thawing pizza dough. I usually do this overnight. I use a brand called Tiseo's. It's really good, if you can find it.
2Brown Italian sausage until no longer pink. Placed on paper towel-lined plate
3Take pizza dough out of fridge. Place on a floured board. Roll out to a 12" circle.
4Spray pizza pan with cooking spray. Dust with cornmeal. Place dough on pizza pan.
5Cover dough with 1/2 jar pizza sauce, then Italian sausage, then mozzarella. Top with pepperoni and mushrooms. If you'd like, add any other toppings you wish.
6Bake at 450 for 15 minutes. Serves 4. (You can cut it into 8 slices. I figure 2 per person is a serving)
