In a skillet, saute green pepper slices in 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Remove peppers and set aside. In the same skillet, add remaining olive oil; saute mushrooms over medium-high heat until lightly browned.

Arrange 3 slices of provolone over dough, followed by 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella and 1/4 cup of Parmesan into each pan. Spread 3/4 cup of pizza sauce over cheese layer. Top each pizza with half of the green peppers, mushrooms, olives and sausage slices.
- Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 to 35 minutes or until crusts are golden brown. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges. Serve.

I made half a recipe for just the 4 of us. We don't eat green peppers, so I used red, yellow and orange peppers in place of the green, and added some onion as well. We enjoyed this "Chicago styl...
This was a really good pizza! I prebaked my crust and left off the mushrooms. I made one pizza with the sausage and one with pepperoni. Served both to five non-sausage eating family members a...
My family and I LOVED this one. Johnsonville Italian sausage is certainly the star of this recipe. I actually do not like sausage, as a general rule, but I always love Johnsonville products! I d...
