Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage, cooked and drained
  • 1-1/3 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 small green pepper, sliced into rings
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, optional

Directions

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll and stretch dough into four 4-in. circles. Cover; let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat air fryer to 400°. Roll and stretch each dough into a 6-in. circle. Place 1 crust in greased air fryer. Carefully spread with 1/4 cup pizza sauce, 1/3 cup sausage, 1/3 cup cheese, a fourth of the green pepper rings and a pinch of oregano. Cook until crust is golden brown, 6-8 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
