Sausage and Ricotta Pizza

This spicy, meaty, cheesy, saucy Sausage and Ricotta Pizza can be made at home in about 20 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 4 oz uncooked hot Italian poultry sausage, chicken or turkey sausage will work
  • 1 Boboli 12” Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
  • ½ cup pizza sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup shredded 2% Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450.
  • Place sausage in a small skillet and bring it over medium heat. Break up the meat with a wooden spoon and cook until sausage is browned.
  • Spread pizza sauce evenly across the top surface of the pizza crust, leaving at least a ½ inch edge around the outside. Sprinkle the crushed red pepper flakes over the pizza sauce, followed by the shredded Mozzarella. Use a spoon to drop dollops of the ricotta around the surface of the pizza. Add the chopped basil and the cooked sausage crumbles and finish the pizza by sprinkling the Italian seasoning over top.
  • Place pizza on a foil covered baking sheet, a preheated pizza stone (my preference) or straight onto the oven rack (depending on how you like your crust) and bake for 8-10 minutes.
