Chicago Seven

Last weekend we were craving pizza. Out of no where DH says "lets make a Chicago Seven Pizza". We Googled the ingredient list and ran to the market for the supplies we didn't have. I have to tell you, it was the most delicious  pizza I have had in a long time. I have been eating mainly a veggie and fish diet since my 30 days of stomach flu, so it was likely the meat and veggie combination that made it taste so great to me. 

1 pizza dough
Pizza sauce (we used a quick homemade sauce)
Mozzarella Cheese
Mushrooms - sliced
Red Onions - thinly sliced
Red Peppers - thinly sliced
Black Olives
Sausage (we used lean turkey burger seasoned like sausage with steak seasoning : fennel, peppers, etc. DH is great at compromising with me on fatty food. Our sausage was turkey burger but we used regular pepperoni.)

Roll the dough out and fit it to the pizza pan.

Cook the faux sausage in a pan.

Prepare your pizza sauce.

Clean and slice all the veggies.

Put a thin layer of sauce on the pizza dough.

Sprinkle mozzarella on to the sauce. Putting it here it acts like a glue for the ingredients.

Put on pepperoni slices.

Add sausage pieces and black olives.

Put a layer of red onions on the pizza.

Then add sliced mushrooms...

And sliced red peppers.

Bake at 425 degrees until toppings are cooked and the cheese is melted, typically 12-17 minutes.


The result is a delicious, steaming hot Chicago Seven Pizza!  This recipe will definitely be a repeat in our house :)
