Sausage Pizza

Spicy sausage, onions, mushrooms and plenty of cheese make this pizza from our Test Kitchen a real keeper. It beats the delivery variety every time—and there’s no wait! Bake up two or more and keep one on hand for busy nights. TIP: Substitute less spicy sausage or chicken and a variety of veggies and cheese to suit your family’s taste.
