A meaty and spicy pizza with a bright and fresh kick! Balanced, so delicious and easy to make, a perfect spring and summer pizza. You’re going to love it!


1 pizza dough, room temp, either from the supermarket deli or give my recipe a try

1/4c pesto
1c mozzarella or fontina, shredded
1/2c parmesan, grated
1/2 lb hot sausage, browned and crumbled
Pinch or 2 of red pepper flakes, to taste


Preheat oven to 500°F with your pizza stone inside. Heavily sprinkle a pizza peel with semolina or cornmeal. Stretch dough in a big circle and place on top of the semolina, give the peel a little shake to know that the dough isn’t sticking. If you don’t have a pizza stone just line a baking sheet with parchment and stretch your dough out in a circle on there.

Spread pesto over dough, leaving about 1″ around the border. Spread the cheese over the pesto then distribute cooked sausage over the cheese then sprinkle with red pepper flakes.

Bake for about 10 minutes.
