Servings: 4




1 can (13.8 oz)            Refrigerated Pillsbury Classic Pizza Crust                            
3 cups                         Mozzarella cheese, divided                                       
1 cup                           Mild Italian sausage, cooked                                     
3/4 cup                        Robert Rothschild Farm Roasted Red Pepper & Onion Dip      
1/4 cup                        Parmesan cheese, shredded




Preheat oven to 400° F. Unroll pizza crust dough in a 12-inch oven proof skillet. Press dough into an even layer on bottom and at least halfway up the side of pan. Prick the bottom and sides of pan with a fork. Bake the crust for 15 - 20 minutes or until crust is light golden brown. While crust is baking, add Roasted Red Pepper & Onion Dip and cooked sausage to a skillet over medium high heat and cook 5 - 10 minutes, or until most of the liquid is cooked off. Sprinkle 2 cups of mozzarella cheese over crust. Top cheese with sausage mixture, then add remaining 1 cup of mozzarella cheese, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake pizza for 30 more minutes or until crust is golden brown.
