Cooking With Mr. C.’s Homemade Sausage and Broccoli Rabe Pizza

IMG_5080

Ingredients:

2 tsp.  olive oil

1 lb. sweet Italian sausage, casings removed, (chopped)

1 tsp. garlic (minced)

1 bunch broccoli rabe (about 10-12 oz.) (cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces)

sea salt and freshly ground pepper

1 cup prepared tomato sauce

2 cups fresh shredded mozzarella cheese

Pizza Dough (Premade)

Directions:

  1. On a large board, put a tbsp. of flour.  Spread it out. Roll out pizza dough. It should be about 1/4 inch thick. (Note: It doesn’t have to be round shaped. Whatever works for you.) Brush a drop of olive oil on a baking/pizza pan. Put dough on pan.
  2. In a small skillet put 2 tsp. of olive oil. Add sausage. Cook for about 5 minutes, until cooked and browned. Stir frequently. (set to the side)
  3. In a pot of boiling water, put broccoli rabe. Cook for about 3 minutes, or until tender. Drain well. Get all excess water out.
  4. Put tomato sauce on pizza dough. Scatter mozzarella on top. Put sausage, mince garlic and broccoli rabe on top. (see photo)
  5. Sprinkle a little sea salt and black pepper.
  6. Drizzle a little olive oil on top
  7. In a preheated oven of 400 degrees, bake pizza for about 20-22 minutes. *It depends on your oven. I checked it very often after the first 15 minutes. You want the dough cooked and crispy, but you don’t want it to burn on the bottom.

  1. Mr. C. I made this pizza last night for my family. They loved it. I’m looking forward to your book. I’m a teacher too. Liz Edmond, Oklahoma
