Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza Recipe

Sun-Dried Tomato Pizza

I made this sun-dried tomato pizza for my sister in-law. She is a vegetarian and for her recent dinner visit I wanted to make her a healthy pizza. I rehydrated sun-dried tomatoes, then sauteed kale, garlic and onions. After pre-baking the dough, I spread on a thick layer of homemade sauce, sprinkled on shredded mozzarella cheese, then added the veggies. This pizza was very simple, but it had delicious and fresh flavors.

Grilled Sausage and Kale Pizza Recipe

One of the things Andrew and I look forward to eating in the summer is Italian sausage, topped with peppers and onions from the grill. While cleaning out the freezer this afternoon I found two sausage patties and some frozen kale. So, in place of peppers and onions (see Pizza #23 Fuggetaboutit Pizza) I decided to make a sausage and kale pizza.

First, I chopped the kale and sliced the onion, then sprayed them with a light coating of olive oil spray. Andrew grilled the veggies along with the Italian sausage, while I rolled out the dough. I sprayed one side of the dough, then laid it on my grill pan. We let the dough cook for four minutes, then flipped it. Next we added the toppings. I spread on marinara, sprinkled on mozzarella cheese, then Andrew added chopped Italian sausage, the kale and onion. We let it cook for about five more minutes, then brought it to the top shelf under the grill in order to let the cheese melt. The sausage tasted great with the kale and onions. This pizza was another success!
