This pizza recipe is perfect for Easter time…although really anytime of the year if you like polish sausage, peppers and onions. And of course, pizza. I know in my family, Easter dinner is all about polish sausage and ham. I am Polish and so is my husband so we get our share of polish sausage and ham at Easter. The smell of sausage reminds me of Easter each and every time. If you are also Polish, you probably know what I mean. So if you like polish sausage, you will love this pizza.
This pizza recipe comes from my husband’s friend. He used to be a chef at a local restaurant and he has some fantastic recipes. Some that he is willing to share with me, so lucky for me and for you because he has some great recipes! Besides this pizza recipe, he has also given me his recipe for Chicken Wing Pizza. When you bite into that pizza, it tastes just like you are biting into a chicken wing. That pizza is also amazing! A favorite in our house!
It is pretty easy to make this pizza. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Cut up the polish sausage into thin, round slices. Set that aside. Make sure you buy the smoked polish sausage since there are two different kinds of polish sausage, fresh and smoked. Funny thing is that I really don’t like smoked polish sausage but I love this pizza. It must be the mixture of all the ingredients together. Okay, so now slice up the onion and peppers into long, thin strips. This part is important…sauté the onion, green pepper and red pepper each individually. According to our friend who gave me this recipe, if you sauté them all together, you will get a totally different flavor. So, I trust him and sauté each one separately. Once you have them all sautéed, you are ready to put the pizza together.
Just spread out your pizza dough to the edges of your baking sheet or pizza pan. Then, spread out the mustard evenly over the pizza dough as you would pizza sauce. Place the peppers and onion over the mustard, making sure they are also spread out evenly. Next add the sausage to the pizza and sprinkle the cheese over the pizza. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. The pizza is done when the cheese is melted and the crust edges are slightly browned.
Being that it is Easter time, this would be great to have either at an Easter brunch or dinner. It works for both. And really, this pizza should not be saved just for Easter time. It is that good!
