Sausage Sandwich Squares Recipe

As Sunday school teachers, my husband and I often host youth groups, so I dreamed up this "handy" recipe to feed some hungry teenagers. They loved this pizza-like sandwich and still request it when they visit. -Mary Merrill, Bloomingdale, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12-15 servings


  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/3 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, diced
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder


  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add the salt, remaining water and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 50 minutes.
  • 3. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. In drippings, saute peppers and onion until tender; drain.
  • 4. Press half of the dough onto the bottom and 1/2 in. up the sides of a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Spread sausage evenly over crust. Top with peppers and onion. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Roll out remaining dough to fit pan; place over cheese and seal edges.
  • 5. In a small bowl, beat egg and water. Stir in remaining ingredients. Brush over dough. Cut slits in top. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into squares. Yield: 12-15 servings.

"I think this sounds super enough to please both my grandchildren and grandpa. BUT I intend to use ready-made pizza dough, as I never have enough time when we have the grandkids here!
