Sausage-Cheese Pizza

This was a recipe I came upon in an Italian magazine and decided to try it out. Afterall, who doesn't love delicious pizza? In the recipe it says to make your own dough to fit a 16X12X1-inch pan but we used 2 premade crusts we bought from our local market. So, you can make 1 big pizza or 2 smaller pizzas. Either way, it is delicious!

To make either 1 large or 2 smaller pizzas:

1 tablespoon dried oregeno, crushed
1 cup canned crushed tomatos or tomato sauce
4 cups shredded mozzerela cheese (16 ounces)
1 pound uncooked sweet Italian sausage, casing removed if present
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil

1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees F. Sprinkle oregeno over dough. Spread crushed tomatos or tomato sauce over dough. Sprinkle with mozzrela cheese. Break off quarter-size chunks of sausage and arrange on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Drizzle olive oil over top.

2. Bake about 30 minutes or until crust bottom is crisp and brown. Cool in pan on wire rack for 5 minutes. Cut and serve immediately.
