Grilled Veggie Sausage Pizza

Last summer, while we were building our new house, our grill served as my temporary stove. Among the recipes I experimented with was this crispy thin-crust pizza. It met with such approval, guests were eager to try it in their own backyards.

  • Makes
    2 pizzas

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1-1/3 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 5 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3-1/4 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1-1/2 cups pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the sugar, oil, salt, garlic salt, oregano and 1-1/2 cups flour. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  • Wrap foil over the outside bottom of two 12-in. pizza pans; grease pans and set aside. In a skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set aside. Divide dough in half. On a floured surface, roll each portion into a 13-in. circle. Transfer to prepared pans; build up edges slightly.
  • Spread pizza sauce over crusts; sprinkle with sausage, cheese, mushrooms and peppers. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until bottom of crust is browned and cheese is melted.
