Roasted Zucchini and Onion Pizza with Chicken Sausage

Pizza = health food


Follow me on this one:
  1. You've got your grains in a thin, crunchy whole-wheat crust. 
  2. Chicken sausage provides a flavorful protein punch. 
  3. Mozzarella covers you in the dairy department.
  4. Roasted zucchini, onions and a thick layer of fire-roasted tomato sauce pack in at least one serving of veggies.


Sounds like a well-rounded meal to me. What do you think?

Roasted Zucchini and Onion Pizza with Chicken Sausage



Makes one 10-inch pizza (I ate one half for dinner and the other half for lunch the next day.)

 

Total preparation and cook time: 30 - 40 minutes 

 

Difficulty: Easy peasy

 

Ingredients:



Steps:

  1. Heat oven to as high as it will go. (My oven heats to 550 degrees Fahrenheit. Place pizza stone or baking sheet in the oven at this time.
  2. Make pizza dough according to recipe. Set aside and cover with a towel or upside-down bowl to rest.
  3. Slice veggies, toss them with the oil; and season with the pepper, paprika and garlic powder. Using a small pan, broil the veggies in a toaster oven for 10 minutes.
  4. While the veggies are roasting, saute the sliced chicken sausage in a skillet over medium heat for five to six minutes or until slightly browned.
  5. Remove veggies from the toaster oven. Toss in the lemon juice.
  6. Set the veggies and chicken sausage aside.
  7. Take the dough and roll it out on cutting board or large plate to form a 10-inch circle.
  8. Remove the pizza stone or baking sheet from the oven. Carefully transfer dough to the stone or sheet.
  9. Top the pizza with sauce, minced garlic, tomato basil seasoning, zucchini, onions, chicken sausage and mozzarella.
  10. Place in the oven. Cook for five minutes.
  11. Rotate the pizza stone or baking sheet 180 degrees. Cook for an additional three to five minutes or until the crust is golden-brown and mozzarella is bubbling.
  12. Remove pizza from oven. Allow it to cool for five minutes before slicing.
  13. Eat!
