Introduction

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients


    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1/4 tablespoons minced garlic
    1/4 cup organic tomato sauce
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    Pinch pepper
    1 link precooked chicken basil sausage
    Salt, to taste
    Pepper, to taste
    1/2 red bell pepper or jarred roasted red pepper
    4 ounces prepared pizza dough
    2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
    1 tablespoon chopped scallion, white and green parts
    1 teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh basil

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

2. For the tomato sauce, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat, add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add tomato sauce, salt and pepper, and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes.

3. Preheat a gas grill or stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat. Place chicken basil sausage and bell pepper on the grill. Grill the sausage until cooked through, about 2 minutes each side; set aside. Continue grilling the pepper, turning, until the skin is blackened, 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Place pepper in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let stand until cool enough to handle. Peel, stem and seed the pepper; cut or tear half the pepper into large dice, reserving the other half of the roasted pepper for another dish. When chicken sausage is done, slice thinly and set aside.
5. Spray an aluminum pizza pan with nonfat cooking spray. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to stretch the pizza dough into a thin round, about 8 inches. Place it in the prepared pan. Spread the dough with the tomato sauce. Sprinkle with half of the cheese. Arrange the sliced chicken sausage on top, and scatter the pepper over. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

6. Bake until the edges are crisp and lightly browned, and the cheese is melted, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with scallions and basil, if using. Let pizza stand about 2 to 3 minutes before eating.
