This was part of my New Year’s Eve menu and it was a HIT. Enjoy!
Premade pizza dough (you can get it in the dairy aisle of your grocery store or local pizza shop)
1 green pepper, sliced
½ yellow onion, sliced
3 sausage links, out of casing
crushed red pepper flakes
handful pecorino romano cheese (grated)
Bring pizza dough to room temperature. Leave it out of the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 425. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, heat a teaspoon of olive oil. Add sausage to pan and break up with a wooden spoon. Cook until brown and crumbled. Remove from pan with slotted spoon, reserve on a plate. Pour out most of the oil. Add the sliced peppers, onions, oregano and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook for about 8 minutes until the veggies are tender.
Roll dough with a little bit of flour into a large rectangle. Place on a lightly oiled cookie sheet (with sides). Add filling on half of the dough (long side), leaving a one inch space on the top and bottom. Begin rolling, starting on the side the filling is on. Keep rolling until you have a log shape. Seal off the edges by pinching them and folding them under the roll. Brush the top with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with the cheese. Cut 3 slits in the top to let the steam escape. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Slice and serve.
