Serves 6

Prep time 15 minutes

Cook time 25 minutes


1 pkg. (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza crust dough, at room temperature at least 1 hour
1 lb. Italian sausage, casings removed
1 cup part skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1 cup Contadina® Pizza Sauce or Pizza Squeeze
1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.  Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.  Press dough into a 15x10-inch rectangle, and decoratively pinch the edges, if desired.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges begin to turn light golden brown.

  2. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; set aside.  Stir basil into ricotta; set aside.

  3. Spread pizza sauce evenly over crust.  Top with mozzarella cheese, sausage and small dollops of ricotta mixture.  Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until mozzarella is melted and crust is golden brown.
