I found this great little pizza over at www.korenainthekitchen.com. Her pictures looked so scrumptious that I knew I just had to try it! It is just as good as it looks in the pictures….maybe better. I like that she drizzled a little heavy cream rather than traditional pizza sauce, so yummy! I think we will set about having pizza night at my house and experiment with all sorts of toppings. What do you all think?
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 can pizza dough (I used 2 because I used a large pan)
2-3 Tbsp heavy cream
2 cups Italian cheeses (Mozzarella, Romano, Parmesan)
1 tsp minced garlic
1 pkg mild Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1 jalapeno pepper, sliced and seeds removed for less heat
Preheat oven to 400F. Drizzle a cookie sheet or a baking stone with olive oil. Spread pizza dough over pan. Drizzle with heavy cream and sprinkle with minced garlic, lightly coat all of the crust. Sprinkle 1 cup cheese, then Italian sausage, tomatoes, jalapeno and lastly, the remaining cup of cheese. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
