(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Pizza/Flatbread


  • 1-2 links Italian sausage, removed from casing
  • 1 lb. pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta, divided
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 3 cups baby arugula
  • 3 cups chopped Little Gem lettuce


  1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a large rimless baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Cook sausage in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 5-6 minutes.

  3. Roll pizza dough into a 13-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to the prepared pan. Spread tomatoes over the dough, leaving a 1/4 to 1/2-inch border and sprinkle with mozzarella and 1/4 cup feta. Top with the sausage.

  4. Bake the pizza until the crust is golden brown and crisp and the cheeses are melted, 15-20 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, whisk oil, lemon juice, honey and crushed red pepper in a medium bowl. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup feta.

  6. When the pizza is ready, add arugula and lettuce to the dressing and toss to coat. Top the pizza with the greens and cut into 6 slices.
