Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 3/4 pound Italian turkey sausage links, casings removed

  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper

With greased fingers, press dough onto a 12-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray. Prick dough thoroughly with a fork. Bake at 400° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the sausage, onion, mushrooms and green pepper over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain.
