Spicy sausage, onions, mushrooms and plenty of cheese make this pizza from our Test Kitchen a real keeper. It beats the delivery variety every time—and there’s no wait! Bake up two or more and keep one on hand for busy nights. TIP: Substitute less spicy sausage or chicken and a variety of veggies and cheese to suit your family’s taste.

"It had good taste from all the toppings but why do you say to put the raw bread dough on an ungreased pan? I had to soak the pan and then chisel the very burned crust off my very nice pizza pan!"

"I used to make my own pizzas & used frozen bread dough. Question: How did you prevent the dough from sticking to an ungreased pan? Only once I forgot & had to chisel the pizza out of the pan. Never forgot again!"
