Leftover Pizza: Revisited

This is what I made for lunch.

Pizza + College student seems to go hand in hand, but I’m trying to promote making good, homemade pizzas (remember this pizza post?–sorry in advance for the horrible picture). They’re pretty simple and they taste so much better.  And it was made almost entirely of leftovers!

It’s Italian sausage, spinach, and tomato pizza on a whole wheat crust. I had the Italian sausage & spinach left over from a pasta dish. I had the pizza sauce left over from a while ago, but I didn’t have enough so I added a little bit of pasta sauce we had left over,  and I bought the dough from a pizza place, and I bought the tomato because I wanted one.

It’s just as easy as:

  • preheating the oven to 450 F
  • roll out dough evenly
  • add olive oil, pizza sauce, cheese, and then toppings
  • bake for 7-9 minutes, or until golden brown/crispy.

What I did for this pizza in particular:

  1. Cooked Italian sausage on stove with minced onions and garlic. After cooked through, I added frozen spinach and let them both cook until they were an even temp
  2. Rolled out the pizza dough on a floured surface. Transferred to the back side of a cookie sheet lined with corn meal to prevent sticking (in order to get it onto my pizza stone, but you can just place into the pan that you’re going to cook it on).
  3. Coated with olive oil, then sauce, then mozzerella, a lot of Italian sausage mix, and then a little bit more cheese on top.
  4. Put it on the oven on the second to bottom rack (it probably wouldn’t hurt to put it on the bottom one). And I had to cook mine for 9 minutes, but I’m at a high altitude.

It was yummmmmmy!
