Hi Folks ~ Here it is another Sunday night. Sunday's are a good day to make home made pizza. Sunday night pizza started many years ago. I don't always do this, but it is a regular event, something I look forward to.
I try to get the pizza dough going in the bread machine around3:30 as it takes an hour and a half to rise. While it is rising, I cook the Italian sausage first. Then take the sausage out of pan and drain on paper toweling. I add a bit of extra virgin olive oil to the pan, then add chopped onion and green pepper which I lightly brown, then add minced garlic and brown a bit more, then add a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce, and sprinkle in a generous dose of Italian seasoning. Stir, then put on a lid, and cook on low or simmer. It will start filling the air with a wonderful aroma.

then stretched and patted into oiled pan.
then sprinkled with a 6 pepper blend.
and a nice covering of Mozzarella cheese.
Pop into the 400 degree oven and bake for 20 minutes.
This is the first serving, then we have a second,
and the other half of pizza is wrapped and saved for another day.
Easy and delicious.
