¡hot plate! sausage, red onion and mushroom pizza

29 Aug

I tortured myself all day about what to make this week, and finally decided eff it, I’m making pizza–so I found this recipe for sausage, red onion and mushroom pizza and gave it a whirl. Good news! It was worth it.

Sausage, red onion and mushroom pizza

I didn’t realize it until I was already cooking, but this pizza has no sauce. Which is good, because if it did you couldn’t taste the delicious rosemary and red pepper baked into the crust. (Cue “mmmmm” sound effect… Now!)

This recipe has so many things I love: fresh mozzarella, parm, Italian sausage, tons of mushrooms–but my favorite part is definitely the red onion. The recipe called for a whole red onion, but I got scared and only used about 3/4 of that. Minor mistake on my part, because the texture and flavor of that onion just ties the entire pizza together for me–but hey, that’s why God invented enough ingredients to make it again!

Side note: You can tell from the picture there is parsley sprinkled on top–at least the few bits that didn’t get burned in the oven. I have to start remembering that herb is such a wimp and hold off on adding it until the end. Toughen up, parsley! Jeez.
