Level:
Easy

Ingredients

  • One 10-ounce pizza crust (use your favorite)
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 1/4 cups spicy pizza sauce (use your favorite)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 4 jalapenos, sliced into coin-size bites
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onions
  • 12 ounces spicy Italian sausage, removed from its casing

Directions

Special equipment: pizza stone, pizza peel

Remove your favorite pizza dough from the refrigerator 1 hour prior to making the pizza.

Preheat the oven and pizza stone to 475 degrees F.

Roll out the dough to desired thickness. Add the cornmeal to the pizza peel and place the dough on it. (The cornmeal will prevent the dough from sticking.)

Evenly cover the dough with the pizza sauce and mozzarella. Add the jalapenos, fresh garlic and red onions. Finally, put some pizza sauce on your hands and with both hands squeeze small portions of sausage on to the pizza. Now wash your hands!

Shake the pizza peel to make sure the pizza will slide off the peel onto the stone. Bake until crispy, 9 to 13 minutes.

Add a bit of your favorite spices (chili powder, paprika, or even hot sauce) to amp up the spice.

Cook's Note

Too much cheese makes for a soggy pizza. You should be able to see some of the sauce through the cheese.
