“This pizza is from a local pizzeria that makes their own bread dough. Too time consuming for most of us. Feel free to add or change in any way!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Allow the pizza dough to sit on a counter for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours, covered with a damp towel.
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F with a rack in the lowest position.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up into large pieces with a spoon until golden brown but still pink in the middle (4-6 minutes).
  4. Coat a 9-inch cake pan with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Press the dough into the pan, covering the bottom and sides. Top the dough, in this order, with the mozzarella, marinara, onion, and cooked sausage.
  5. Bake until the crust is golden brown (30-35 minutes). Top with the ricotta and pepper. Bake until the ricotta is warm (3-4 minutes). Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
