Bruschetta pizza

Woohoo.  Dinner is still cooking, and this is my last post to catch myself up - oops, spoke too soon, dinner is beeping.
OK, dinner is over.  Now to finish blogging before I go make some cookies.
This is a pizza we made the other day.  We used Roman dough and Neo-nepolitana from our pizza dough book.  But we used the toppings from a recipe I saw on Recipe shoebox. I liked this recipe for a change.  I liked the freshness of the tomato and basil on top.  I also liked that it didn't have the traditional red sauce, just the toppings.  It was quite taste.  For sausage we used some more of the Italian sausage that Brandon had made the other day.  It was tasty.


  • 1/2 pound pork sausage (not sure how much we used per pizza)
  • 1 pizza crust of choosing (we used a home made like this one but you could choose a pre-made)
  • 1 package turkey pepperoni
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme (or 1/8 teaspoon dried)
  • 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  1. In a small skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink.  Drain.  
  2. Top pizza crust with sausage, pepperoni and cheese (we actually made 2 smaller pizzas with this amount of toppings.)  Original had you bake these at 450 for 10-12 minutes.  We baked our on our home made dough at 550 for 6-7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, basil, olive oil, garlic, thyme, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. 
  4. When pizza is out of the oven, top with tomato mixture.
