Grilled Italian Sausage, Roasted Pepper & Oregano Pizza

Prep: 15 minutes
Grill: 12 minutes • Serves: 6

8 ounces crumbled Italian sausage, casings removed if necessary (about 1 cup)
Yellow cornmeal for sprinkling
1 prepared whole wheat pizza crust dough, rolled out into 12 x 16-inch rectangle
1/2 cup pizza sauce
1-1/2 cups Dutch Farms® shredded pizza cheese blend
1/2 cup drained, sliced roasted red peppers
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano leaves

1. Prepare outdoor grill for indirect grilling over medium heat (about 400°). In large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes or until browned, breaking up sausage with side of spoon; drain.

2. Sprinkle bottom of rimmed baking pan or rimless cookie sheet with cornmeal. Carefully transfer rolled out dough onto baking pan over cornmeal. Carefully slide dough onto center of hot grill rack. Cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until bottom of crust is lightly browned, rotating once halfway through cooking. Transfer crust back to baking pan.

3. Leaving 1/2-inch border, spread pizza sauce over crust. Sprinkle cheese over sauce and top with peppers, sausage and oregano.

4. Slide pizza onto hot grill rack. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted, moving pizza if necessary to prevent crust from burning. Transfer to cutting board and cut into 12 pieces.
