White Pizza with Chicken Sausage and Onions

I love to experiment with different pizza creations. In the past, I have made a Barbecue Pork Pizza, Taco Pizza, Chicken and Spinach Alfredo Pizza, just to name a few.  You can see all my pizzas here.

However, tonight’s pizza creation was made by accident because I mistakenly thought I had pizza sauce in the refrigerator. It wasn’t until I was stretching out the dough that it dawned on me that we were out. At that point I knew our pizza destiny tonight would be a white one.

Personally, I love white pizza – you can’t go wrong with olive oil, garlic, cheese, onions, and dough. Well, maybe your breath won’t be a bouquet of roses but who cares white pizza is awesome. The chicken sausage I used was precooked and flavored with onions and peppers giving this already tasty pizza an extra kick. You can easily bulk up this simple pizza recipe with some spinach, mushrooms, broccoli, or other vegetables.

This recipe is very easy to put together and can be ready, start to finish, within 40 minutes.

I was not sure if the kids would like it but I got the thumbs up from one and the other picked off and ate all the components separately – so that still counts as a hit, right?

Ingredients:

12 inch pizza dough (homemade or purchased)

2 chicken sausage links, sliced and halved

Step 1: Stretch dough out to fit a 12 inch pizza pan lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Step 2: Brush or spread (I used my hands) olive oil over dough leaving an inch for the crust. Then sprinkle on garlic and parmesan cheese. I use all three cloves of garlic because I love it.

Step 3. Add mozzarella cheese, onions, and chicken sausage.

Step 4. Bake for 23 – 25 minutes or until cheese bubbles and browns slightly. Cooking times may vary depending on your dough recipe and oven.

Make Ahead Instructions

For this meal I prepared the dough over the weekend. I took it out of the freezer yesterday to thaw overnight in the refrigerator.  By dinner time it was ready to be prepared into pizza.

For my pizzas I use Wilton Pizza Pans In my opinion they are the best. Each pizza I make turns out great using these pans.

Comments

  1. We like to make a Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza too. Instead of sauce we use ketchup, cheddar cheese, browned, crumbled hamburger and crumbled turkey bacon! You could certainly toss onions on it also!

  2. This looks great! I love changing up pizza. We make something similar to this with chicken and I agree with Amy add some bacon and it is even better. 🙂

  3. Looks delicious! I even have some chicken sausage in the fridge.

  4. I love pizza! This looks amazing. I am certain that my husband would love this. I am bookmarking for later.

    I made these last night on flat out bread…didn’t have pizza dough made up (I’m lazy that way!) and added some fresh spinach. YUM! Thanks for posting all these yummy pizza ideas!
