Here’s another great pizza recipe using Pastorelli Pizza Sauce. Many thanks to our friend Kristen Clements Mackey in Texas.
One package pillsbury pizza crust
One can of Pastorelli pizza sauce
Fresh buffalo mozzarella
Shredded kraft mozzarella
Sautéed mushrooms in tablespoon of butter and fresh chopped garlic
Assemble as desired and bake!
This is such an easy pizza to prepare. It is quick if you use ready-made dough, or a little slower if you make your own. We are always in a hurry so the quick way is the best sometimes for the Formato household.
Use olive oil spray or canola oil spray & spray a 10″ x 15″ rectangular pan.
Prepare pizza dough (I love to use a Pillsbury thin crust dough in a can). This means to spread it out to fit the pan, you shouldn’t have to go up the sides w/ the dough. It should fit nicely in this size baking pan.
Pour pizza sauce over it (here’s where you use the Pastorelli brand, which by the way, is delicious). 1 can can be used for 2 pizzas.
Sprinkle w/ shredded mozzarella cheese.
Add little balls of sausage (make it easy on yourself, remove casing from Italian sausage & form round pieces; we like Johnsonville Italian sausage which comes in Mild or Hot).
Chop up some green peppers & sprinkle on top.
Bake for about 10 minutes or according to the package directions. Cut into little squares & serve.
You can add more cheese before baking.
You can freeze & then add cheese before baking.
Usually there’s not much left every time this is served.
Home-made pizza dough (use your favorite or buy ready made thin crust pizza crust)
Turkey pieces /chunks (left over from Thanksgiving)
Mezzetta Organics Pitted Kalamata Olives (use as desired)
Castella Imported Sun Dried Tomatoes (cut into thirds, use as desired)
Antica Italia Garlic Infused Olive Oil
Position crust on pizza tin.
Brush on Antica Italia Garlic Infused Olive Oil to cover entire pizza base.
Add turkey, sun dried tomatoes, kalamata olives as desired.
Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over all.
Sprinkle more Antica Italia Garlic Flavored Olive Oil over all as desired.
