Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped 3
Shredded mozzarella cheese 1 cup
Olive oil 1 tablespoon
Balsamic vinegar 1 tablespoon
Cooking spray
Garlic clove, minced 1
Sweet Italian sausage (about 1 link), casings removed 1/3 pound
Red onion, sliced into 1/8 to ¼-inch strips ¼
Yellow bell pepper, sliced into 1/8 to ¼-inch strips ½
Fresh rosemary, chopped 2 tablespoons
Refrigerated pizza dough 10 ounces
  1. Directions
  2. Combine tomatoes, cheese, oil, and vinegar in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat, add garlic, and cook 1 minute. Add sausage, onion, and pepper, and sauté, breaking sausage apart as it cooks, about 6-8 minutes, until sausage is cooked and vegetables are tender. Stir in rosemary during the last minute of cooking. Using a slotted spoon, transfer sausage mixture to a plate covered with several layers of paper towels.
  4. Prepare grill. Unroll pizza dough into a 12-inch square, transfer to grill, and grill about 4 minutes, until bottom is browned. Carefully flip dough over. Spread sausage mixture over dough (leave a ½-inch border), top with tomato-cheese mixture, and grill an additional 6-8 minutes, until cheese is melted and dough is cooked through.
