Recipe 29: Homemade Sausage Pizza

I have always tried to recreate restaurants favourites at my home. Just because I think that those food which we call Fast Food can be made healthier and tastier in the comfort of our home.

And, unlike how it is understood, they are not that difficult to prepare.

I have perfected a vegetarian pizza previously. Today I bring to you my recipe of a sausage pizza that is absolutely healthy, delicious and wholesome.

Ingredients:

  1. 400gms pizza dough 
  2. 2 ripe  red tomatoes chopped
  3. 5-6 garlic cloves grated
  4. 6-7 sausages (I used chicken)
  5. 7-8 fresh basil leaves
  6. 1 onion sliced
  7. 1 capsicum chopped
  8. 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  9. 1/2 cup corn kernels boiled
  10. 1/4 cup Tomato Ketchup
  11. 2 tbsp. oregano
  12. 2 tsp sugar
  13. 2 tsp black pepper powder
  14. 2 tsp red chilly flakes
  15. 2 cheese cubes (optional)
  16. salt to taste

Method:

Roll out the pizza dough and place it in a greased pizza pan and make several pricks with a fork.
Blind bake it in an oven for 10-15 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius.
Prepare a pizza sauce by sautéing chopped tomatoes and garlic in some vegetable oil.
You can also use olive oil.
Add salt to soften the tomatoes.
Add tomato ketchup, sugar, black pepper powder, dried oregano and chopped basil leaves.
Bring out the pizza dough from the oven and spread the tomato sauce generously leaving an inch from the sides.
Spread a layer of capsicum, corn and onions.
Add the sliced sausages.
Spread mozzarella cheese on top. And some pieces of the cubed cheese as well.
Sprinkle more chopped basil and oregano before popping it in the oven.
Bake your pizza at 180 degrees for 30-45 minutes or till you can see the cheese melting and bubbling and the vegetables all cooked.
Slice it hot and serve.

Tip:

  • Ensure that the first time pizza base is baking, its only 50 percent cooked and not completely brown and crispy.
  • The toppings are where you can experiment a lot. You may add sliced mushrooms, boneless chicken pieces, salami slices, paneer or cottage cheese cubes, etc.
  • Based on your preference or health quotient you can add more or less of the mozzarella cheese and omit cubed cheese.
