Are you ready for a Pizza that is so full of flavor that it becomes an addiction issue!? I have the pizza for you, it layered with ricotta cheese, pizza sauce, my home made basil pesto sausage meat balls and just for kicks roasted hot peppers. The magnitude of flavors just are mind boggling.
The Sloppy Italian Pizza
Pizza dough - I get mine from the local bakery
1/2lb - Lean Beef
6oz. - Italian Sausage
1/2 - Onion, sliced and sauteed
5 - Hot Peppers, roasted
2 Tbsp. -Basil Pesto, I use my home made pesto but store bought will work
16oz. - Ricotta cheese
11/2 cups - Mozzarella cheese
8 oz. - Pizza Sauce
Make miniature meatballs from the beef, salt and pepper them to taste. Place them in a skillet on medium
heat and brown them until they are cooked through. Set aside. Slice the Italian sausage thinly and brown in a skillet over medium heat. Set aside. Spread pizza dough and then brush pesto over it. Layer in order the ricotta cheese, mozzarella, dollop pizza sauce, onions, meatballs, sausage and then the roasted hot peppers. Bake on grill or in oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. Check crust for desired doneness.
