Make it a pizza night at home quickly making a fully loaded pizza with red sauce, red pepper, baby spinach, and Italian sausage.

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes| Serving Size: 6

Here is what you will need:

  • 15 – ounce can tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¾ teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 5-6 ounce package baby spinach
  • 1 pound frozen pizza or bread dough, thawed
  • Olive oil
  • 8 ounces bulk Italian sausage, cooked and drained
  • 6-8 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded (1 ½ to 2 cups)


  1. In a small bowl whisk together the tomato sauce, tomato paste, 2 tablespoons Parmesan, the oregano, basil and crushed red pepper. Set aside.
  2. Place spinach in a large microwave-safe bowl and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons water. Cover with a microwave-safe plate and microwave on 100% power (high) for 30 seconds. Continue cooking in 10-second intervals until just wilted. Remove and let stand for 2 minutes. Carefully remove the plate. Transfer spinach to a sieve; press out excess liquid.
  3. Brush a 12-inch cast-iron or other heavy oven-going skillet with olive oil; set aside. On a lightly floured surface roll dough into a 14-inch circle. Transfer to prepared skillet. Roll edges to form a rim. Brush dough lightly with olive oil. Spread tomato sauce mixture over dough and top with sausage and spinach. Top with mozzarella and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan.
  4. Place skillet over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Transfer to 1 475 degrees F. oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese and crust is lightly browned. Let stand for 4 minutes. Using a spatula, slide pizza out of skillet to a large cutting board and cut into wedges.
