On My Hearth: Sausage & Peppers Pizza



This is an older recipe with the former POINTS but if you're on Weight Watchers you could easily convert it using the Recipe Builder. I used vegetarian sausage patties, a little less cheese and a few more peppers & onions atop a thin crust to cut down on the calories. It was delicious and very filling!

Sausage and Peppers Pizza

Ingredients:

2 cups yellow, red, and green bell pepper strips (about 1-1/2 medium)
1 cup (4 ounces) preshredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add sausage; cook until meat is browned, stirring to crumble. Drain well. Stir in pizza sauce.

Spread ¼ cup meat mixture over each crust; top each with ½ cup bell pepper strips sprinkle each with ¼ cup cheese. Bake immediately or allow to cool, then wrap tightly in foil and freeze.

To bake immediately, preheat oven to 425.
