Mushroom, Sausage, and Red Onion Pizza

Any variety of pizza dough, including fresh or frozen pizza dough that can be bought in grocery stores, can be used for this recipe. So I’m not including instructions to make the pizza dough itself. I love provolone cheese and think it goes great with this pizza, but feel free to use mozzarella. And always use a pizza stone if you have one (get one if not, they’re amazing).

Main Ingredients

1 large pizza dough

1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh or dried rosemary

1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

1 large clove garlic, diced

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 medium size hot italian sausages, casings removed

1/2 cup red onion, chopped

8 ounces mushrooms, chopped, mixed blend, like shiitake, baby portabella, or oyster

1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella or provolone, cheese


1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Position the oven rack near the top of your oven (not the very top).

2Prepare your pizza dough according to the instructions that came with it or your desired technique.

3In a large skillet, heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, sausage, and red pepper flakes. Sauté the sausage until browned, about 5 minutes. Be sure to stir and break up the sausage, as if you were frying ground beef. Add the mushrooms and garlic to sausage and sauté for another 4 to 5 minutes. Stir the rosemary in to the sausage and mushrooms and remove from the heat.

4It’s important to sauté the sausage and mushrooms to cook and remove moisture and fat from the food, because that moisture with otherwise end up in your pizza, making it soggy. However, be sure not to dry out the meat and mushrooms. After sautéing the onion, sausage, and mushrooms, transfer them to a paper towel to allow any excess fat and moisture to drain off.

5Evenly spread the onions, sausage, and mushrooms over your prepared pizza dough. Then add the parmesan cheese and top the pizza with mozzarella or provolone cheese.

6Bake on your pizza stone for 8 to 9 minutes, or unit the cheese is slightly browned and bubbling. If you don’t have a pizza stone, you can lightly flour a baking sheet and bake your pizza on the baking sheet.

Additional Notes

I don’t like cheap consumer pizza cutting wheels, they don’t work. Instead I like to cut my pizza with a good kitchen shears or scissors. A pizza stone and kitchen shears are great tools for cooks who want to make pizza at home often. Cooking pizza at home is way better than takeout.
