My mom has made this spin on pizza for years. It is definitely in my husband's "top 10" list. The other day when I was made sausage squares, I mentioned that I never posted the recipe. Ed wondered why not!
Basically you make a pizza crust, layer on the meat and cheese, omitting the sauce, and top with more dough. The result is a yummy easy to handle "sandwich" that we love hot or cold.
Use a batch of your favorite pizza crust dough or use this one
3 1/2 cup flour (white, whole wheat, or mix)
1 T yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/3 cup warm water
Mix 2 cup flour, yeast, and salt. Add warm water and mix well. Stir in enough flour to make a firm dough. Knead for one minute. Allow to rise until double.
1 lb sausage
1 red pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
3 cup shredded mozarella cheese
Brown sausage with onion and peppers.
Press half of dough onto bottom and sides of greased jelly roll pan (15x10). Spread sausage over dough. Sprinkle with cheese. Roll out remaining dough and place over cheese and seal edges. If you wish, brush a beaten egg over crust and sprinkle with oregano and Parmesan cheese. Cut slits in top crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cut into squares.
