This is the second pizza that came out of my hot oven last week. As far as my taste buds are concerned, it didn’t beat the Pizza with Truffle Oil with Mushrooms and Mozzarella but it was still a winner. Taking the time to caramelize the onions and using fresh sage makes all the difference.

Crank up your oven to 500 degrees and start flipping some pizza dough in the air. (I DID try flipping my pizza dough in the air, which which was going great until at one point, I dropped the dough on the floor. I went with the 5 second rule and moved forward with the pizza. shhh) Throw on some delicious toppings and enjoy a pizza night!

Sausage, Caramelized Red Onion and Fresh Sage

Pizza Dough
Tomato Sauce
Italian Sausage
Caramelized Red Onion
Fresh Sage
Shredded Italian Cheese

Pizza Dough:
I didn’t love my pizza dough recipe. Try this one.

Tomato Sauce:
Use your favorite sauce. Or, for a quick one, mix 2 parts tomato paste with one part olive oil, some oregano, basil and salt.

Caramelized Red Onions:
Follow these step by step instructions.

Make the dough according to instructions. Brown the italian sausage and drain on paper towel to remove excess oil. Spread the dough with a thin layer of tomato sauce. Top with sausage, caramelized red onions and chopped fresh sage. Sprinkle with your favorite italian cheese(es). I used half mozzarella and parmesan.

Bake in the oven at 500 degrees on a pizza stone until crust is lightly browned and cheese is bubbling.

    [...] This recipe was born out of what ingredients I happened to have on hand. A number of long, curvy sweet potatoes arrived in my organic produce box along with the kale and it seemed the two had developed a relationship on the way to my house. So, I decided to keep them together. A quick rummage through my produce drawer uncovered some fresh sage. Taking inspiration from this pizza recipe, I decided to toss in some caramelized red onion as well. [...]
