instead of ordering out...

There are some go to dinners in our house when we are short on time and imagination. One of them is ordering pizza. I assume we are like many Americans on this account. But here is the thing about ordering pizza if you are a vegetarian - you can basically get cheese or the same veggies anywhere you go. Oh sure a few places have fancy toppings, but they are always outrageously priced. And, you can never get fake pepperoni or fake sausage. Yes, they do make these things. And really they aren't that bad. So sometimes, when I too am craving a sausage pizza I have to suck it up and make it at home. (P.S. I never have to worry about the carnivore complaining when I make this!)

Its easy enough. I start with two skillets - one for real sausage and one for soysauge. In the soysauge one be sure to add a bit of olive oil - no need in the real thing. I then preheat my oven while I roll out two pillsbury ready made pizza crusts. You can add sauce if you want, but this day I took the easy way out and just brushed each crust with a bit of olive oil and garlic powder. Once the sausage was browned I added it along with shredded mozzarella to each. I also added baby spinach leaves to mine. Then I cooked the pizzas according to the instructions (375 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the cheese gets golden and bubbly).

So there you have it. Customized pizzas in the time it would take to get a basic one delivered. I mean would you have ever imagined making a "sausage" pizza for your vegetarian friends? Sure its a bit more work, but it is worth it...most nights.
