We created this Dutch oven pizza to get more use out of our favorite piece of cookware. We couldn't believe how well it turned out! If you're not a mushroom fan, feel free to substitute different toppings. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen


  • 1 pound frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
  • 8 ounces bulk spicy pork sausage, cooked and drained
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • Optional: Minced fresh basil, red pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450°. Place a 10-inch Dutch oven on bottom rack in oven to heat through, 2-3 minutes.
  2. Roll dough on a lightly floured surface into a 12-inch circle. Fold an 18-in. piece of foil lengthwise into thirds, making a sling. Remove pan from oven; place dough on sling and gently lower dough into pan. Using a wooden spoon, move dough into place and up the sides, leaving sling in pan. Brush dough with oil; spread with marinara sauce. Top evenly with cheese, sausage, onion and mushrooms.
  3. Bake until crust is lightly browned and crisp, about 20 minutes. Cool slightly. Using sling, remove from Dutch oven. Serve with basil, red pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese as desired.
