Yipee! Another pizza recipe! I know I’m excited. I could eat pizza all the time. Actually, I make it once a week for the family, whether they like it or not.
My husband is a huge fan of hot Italian sausages. Usually sausages are made with pork and tend to have a lot of fat, which is why I don’t make a lot of sausage dishes. However, I have recently found some hot Italian sausages made with chicken. Since chicken is a leaner meat, I much prefer to use those instead of the pork ones.
This pizza is amazing. Not only does it taste amazing, but it’s actually healthy. Who would have thought a sausage pizza could be classified as “healthy?”
So, you’re probably wondering what makes this pizza lighter than a regular pizza…
- Like I mentioned above, I’ve used chicken sausage instead of pork
- I’ve added more mushrooms to replace some of the meat
- I’ve used a whole grain pizza crust
- The pizza sauce is low-sodium
- I like to use less cheese than your typical pizza has
So, what did hubby think of this Sausage and Mushroom Pizza? Let’s just say, it’s one of his favorites! For the kids, I make sure to use mild chicken Italian sausage since they don’t like too much heat. I also don’t pile on the mushrooms on their half of the pizza, just scatter a few mushrooms here and there. But feel free to do what works for your kid’s tastes!
Serve this pizza with a salad or favorite veggie and you’ve got a complete meal.
