Sausage Mozzarella Pizza

Sharing is caring!

Today’s recipe is a Sausage Mozzarella Pizza made with store-bought pizza dough. We love using cooking shortcuts when we can and this recipe makes a delicious pizza dinner idea rather quickly.

Sausage Mozzarella Pizza from Refrigerated Dough

This recipe for this Sausage Mozzarella pizza was inspired by a wonderful lunch that we had in Rome last year. We had just arrived in Rome and were looking for an outdoor cafe near our hotel. The restaurant was one of many in the historic area. The square is a bustling open market during the day, and turns into a fun and hip entertainment area in the evening.

 

 

This pizza tasted so good and as I usually do, I took a photo of it. My husband is used to my ritual of photographing food on our vacation. I like to use the photos for recipe inspiration, if I enjoy the food. Here is the actual pizza at a sweet outdoor cafe in Campo di Fiori.

This was taken as they were removing the open market and preparing the square for the evening. Campo de fiori translates to field of flowers in English.

I loved the pizza so I recreated it when I got home. To save time, you can use a ready-made crust, but it is especially good on a homemade crust.

And to help set the mood, here are a few photographs from Rome.

Our visit to the beautiful Colosseum was on a lovely sunny day. Amazing the history that is in this city!
