Mediterranean Pizza (guilt-free)

Submitted by: FOODIEWIFE

Introduction

If you can find ready-made pizza dough, this comes together really fast. I'm fortunate to live near a Trader Joe's where I can buy freshly made pizza dough that doesn't come in a can.
I also make my own Italian seasoning, using equal parts oregano, marjoram, basil, thyme, rosemary and whatever else you like.

It's delicious!

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 Whole Wheat pizza dough
    2 Turkey sausage links (I prefer hot), casings removed
    1/4 cup fat-free feta cheese, crumbled
    1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, rinsed and drained and sliced thin
    2 Tbsp. olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, finely minced
    1 cup fresh baby spinach
    Italian seasoning (about 1-2 tsp)

Directions

Using a small saucepan, heat olive oil with minced garlic on a low heat for just about 2-3 minutes. Set aside to infuse the oil with the garlic flavor.

Cook turkey sausage, cutting into small pieces. Set aside.

Prepare pizza dough, as directed.

Brush oil onto the pizza dough.
Add cooked turkey sausage, feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Moisten spinach and place on top of the pizza.

Add a small drizzle of olive oil.

Bake at 425F between 15-20 minutes; check your oven.

For optimum results, bake pizza on a pre-heated pizza stone.

    yum, i live near trader joes too and i love the dough!! also when i make my own pizza instead of using sauce laced with salt, i use tomato paste and add herbs and mix it with a bit of stock to soften it - 9/22/08

    You know what else works well as my pizza sauce. I love the Tuscano Marinara sauce from Trader Joe's. I just try to avoid the cheese... it's what makes a pizza taste great, but it's also what adds the extra fat I'm trying to get rid of!

  • This was really good! I really liked using olive oil instead of traditional sauce. Even pizza snob hubby liked it! I did sprinkle a little lite Italian cheese blend on top, but I think it would have been just as good without it. Yum! - 3/27/11
