Directions

GETTING READY
1) Preheat oven to 425° F.
2) Remove casings from sausage.

MAKING
3) Take a large heavy skillet and crumble meat in it. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, stirring constantly.
4) Line a plate with paper towel and transfer meat on it. Remove fat from the skillet.
5) In the skillet, add onion and pepper. Saute over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
6) Add garlic and cook for another 1 minute.
7) Add pepperoni, mushrooms, oregano, basil and black pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. In case the mixture seems to be turning dry, add 1-2 tablespoons water.
8) Take a 9-10 inch cast iron skillet and place the unrolled pizza dough in it. Stretch the dough about 1 inch along the sides to fit in the sides. Roll the four corners on the inside slightly.
9) Spread 2 tablespoons pizza or spaghetti sauce on the dough. Place 1/2 the mixture evenly and top with 1/2 the sausage. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese and dot with 3 tablespoons pizza sauce. Repeat layering. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crust turns golden and cheese is melted. Leave aside for 5 minutes.

SERVING
10) Serve hot and enjoy!
