SAUSAGE & GREEN OLIVE PIZZA
1 large pizza dough (cut in half and formed into 2 rounds)
Package of sweet or spicy Italian sausage
Jar of Green Spanish Olives, sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1 cup tomato sauce
This can be done in the oven as my other pizzas, but I decided to grill these ones. Shape the dough’s into round circles, rub both sides with olive oil and place directly on a hot grill. I have a pizza grate that I bought from Crate & Barrel specifically for this purpose, but I have done it directly on the grill before I knew about the pan, so either way is fine. Grill one side until golden brown, and slightly burnt, then slip over with thongs and grill the other side. You are looking for the grill marks on both sides.
Meanwhile, remove the sausage links from their casings and saute in a medium skillet.
Break up the pieces with a wooden spoon, the smaller the better. Once cooked completely, I drain off some of the grease and set aside.
Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce onto the grilled dough and top with half the sausage and a handful of sliced olives. Sprinkle with half of the shredded mozzarella and bring back to the grill to finish until cheese is melted.
Slice and enjoy.
