For dough
All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Milk 2/3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
Vegetable oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Olive oil 1 Teaspoon (as needed)
For pizza topping
Pizza sauce 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Italian sausage 1/2 Pound , browned, crumbled, and drained
Shredded mozzarella cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Shredded parmesan cheese 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)



1. Grease a 12-inch pizza pan with olive oil.

2. Preheat oven to 425 degree F.


3. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, milk, and vegetable oil. Stir vigorously until mixture leaves sides of bowl.

4. Gather dough together and press into ball. Knead for about 10 times or until smooth and divide dough into 2 equal parts.

5. On a lightly floured surface roll one ball into a 13-inch circle. Place on a 12-inch greased pizza pan. Even out the crust, turning under ½ inch around the outside. Pinch or pleat the top edge, as desired.

6. Pierce the crust with a fork at about 1-inch intervals. Spread olive oil evenly over the entire crust, including edge.

7. Pop in oven and bake for 5-8 minutes or until slightly golden.

8. Spread up to ¾ cup of Betty’s versatile Pizza sauce evenly over baked crust.

9. Sprinkle cooked Italian sausage evenly over top, followed by shredded mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.

10. Pop back into the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese melts. For browner top, turn oven to BROIL for a minute or two, watching carefully.


11. Cut into wedges and serve hot!
