Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup each chopped green pepper, sweet red pepper, white onion and red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 turkey Italian sausage link (4 ounces), casing removed
  • 2 teaspoons cornmeal
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 15 turkey pepperoni slices (1 ounce)
  • 2 tablespoons sliced ripe olives
  • 1-1/4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

Directions

In a nonstick skillet, saute the mushrooms, peppers, onions and garlic in oil until tender; remove and set aside. In the same skillet, cook beef and sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
Coat a 14-in. pizza pan with cooking spray and sprinkle with cornmeal. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 15-in. circle.
Transfer to prepared pan. Build up edges slightly; prick dough thoroughly with a fork. Bake at 400° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
In a large bowl, combine the tomato sauce, parsley, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and pepper; spread over crust. Top with the vegetables, meat mixture, pepperoni and olives. Sprinkle with cheeses.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is melted. Yield: 8 servings.
