New Orleans sausage pizza
smoked pork link sausage(s)
4 oz, or andouille variety, diced
1 small, chopped
1 small, seeded and chopped
1 rib(s), small, chopped
canned tomato sauce
4 oz, loaf
shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
½ cup(s), smoked variety
1 medium, thinly sliced
- Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- Spray a nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, stirring, until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove the sausage and drain on paper towels. Wipe out any fat from the skillet.
- Add the onion, bell pepper, and celery to the skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 8 minutes. Stir in the Cajun seasoning and cook 1 minute. Add the tomato sauce; bring to a simmer and cook 3 minutes.
- Cut the bread in half horizontally and arrange, cut-side up, on a baking sheet. Spoon the vegetable sauce over the bread. Top with the sausage. Bake until heated through and the bread is browned at the edges, about 12 minutes. Sprinkle evenly with the cheese and scallion. Bake until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Cut each pizza in half, making a total of 4 pieces. Yields 1 piece per serving.
