This was quick, easy, and not expensive to make at all. Instead of a jar of purchased pizza sauce, I used an 8 oz can of tomato sauce and added to it: basil, oregano, a pinch of thyme, and garlic powder (not garlic salt). I also tossed some sauteed mushrooms on the pizza. Good stuff!

This pizza was very easy and quick. However, I did use a different crust and a I doubled the sausage as two links wouldn't be enough for my teenage boys. That's one of the things I love about these recipes, they are easily adapted without changing the taste. Delicious.

I would say 5* rating for this recipe! My changes were making my own crust and using 3 cooked Italian turkey sausage links. I DID use more pizza sauce and cheese blend. "Volunteer Field Editor"

I prepared this pizza today and it was perfect tailgate food for our football game even at home. This is a definite five-star recipe. I used a refrigerated pizza crust in a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan. Just remember to spray the sides with nonstick spray as well as the bottom. I added pepperoni as we are pepperoni fans. Hubby couldn't stop eating this delicious pizza and neither could I. Easy and delicious. I highly recommend this pizza.Volunteer Field Editor
