Smoked Mozzarella and Sausage Pizza #SundaySupper

Confessions of a Cooking Diva

I think it’s about time for a new pizza recipe, don’t you think? You can never go wrong with pizza for dinner.

My husband and I enjoy going to a local pizza shop that allows you to make your own pizza. There are so many options and can be overwhelming so I tend to stick to ordering a pizza with everything on it. But lately in the kitchen, I’ve been branching out and trying new combinations and this is one of them. My husband loves cheese and gets googly eyes in the cheese section of our local store. We thought it would be fun to make a pizza with smoked mozzarella. It’s so good!

I love the combination of the smoked mozzarella with the spicy sausage, it gives a nice smoky flavor to the pizza with a bite of heat. Add the red onion and the scallions and you’ve got a winner.

The sausage I like to use is Italian Turkey Hot Sausage. I used two links. I decased them and crumbled them into a skillet and cooked until the sausage was no longer pink. You could also use Italian Turkey Sweet Sausage. It will still be just as good.
