Sausage and Mushroom Stuffed-Crust Pizza: Make the Takeout
“How about pizza?” We’ve said it a thousand times, on those nights when, after an incredibly hectic day, the idea of standing over a stove and cooking dinner is just the final straw. Dialing up for pizza delivery is an answered prayer.
But, let’s face it, sometimes the pizza is cold when it arrives, and the crust is soggy. We spend a bundle on so-so pies, and although it’s the easiest dinner around, somehow we’re left unsatisfied.
What if we told you that with about 25 minutes of prep time (and 18 minutes of cooking time) you could have a piping hot pizza, loaded with sausage and mushrooms, and with a crisp crust oozing with cheese? We’ve got it, and your family will not only love it, they may want in on making it. It’s that easy. And that inexpensive: Pizza for six for $1.69 a serving.
For this Sausage and Mushroom Stuffed-Crust Pizza, throw together five simple ingredients for the dough, knead it for four minutes (that’s the fun part), pat it out into a pizza pan, fold the edge of the crust over string cheese, add your toppings (you can substitute your favorites, from pepperoni to peppers and beyond) and some pizza sauce (jar sauce works just fine), and slide it into the oven.
There are always going to be times when the pizza parlor down the street is going to be your best friend. But, with this pizza recipe in hand, you may see that best friend just a bit less often.
