Healthy(er) Mega Meat Pesto Pizzas
Erin has contributed a new recipe to the Julepstyle recipe database. It’s for some really yummy pizzas. And even though I’m writing this in the morning, I’m craving some of her Pizza!
-1 package refrigerated pizza crust
-6 Tbsp. Pesto
-2 Turkey Hot Italian sausages, cooked, and sliced in rounds like a pepperoni
-20 slices Turkey pepperoni
-1/2 cup chopped spinach
-1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
-1/2 cup sliced Baby Bella mushrooms
-6 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
-1/4 cup chopped red onion
-1/2 cup pizza cheese or mozzarella
-1/2 cup 2% shredded sharp cheddar cheese
-1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
-Italian herb seasoning sprinkled on top
Cut the pizza dough in half, form into thin pizza crusts, 8-10” in diameter. Pre-bake according to package directions. Saute’ garlic and mushrooms in a teaspoon or so of olive oil until garlic is golden brown.
Mix Alfredo sauce and pesto until well blended. In a bowl, mix all cheeses together. Spoon sauce onto pre-baked crusts. Add all vegetable toppings except for the onion, top all with cheese mixture leaving about a quarter of the cheese to use later. Place turkey sausage rounds, onion, and turkey pepperoni on top of cheese, sprinkle with remaining cheese mixture and seasoning. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Cut each into 4 pieces and serve!
