I almost didn't post this recipe - I mean it's WAY simple and I used some pretty big shortcuts - but I thought, what the hell.. this can be one of those recipes for those nights when you just don't want to put a ton of effort into a good hearty dinner for your family. Serve this with a nice side salad and you have a great meal that takes less than 30 minutes to make!

Italian Sausage Pizza
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
1/2 lbs Italian sausage, casings removed if necessary
1 yellow sweet pepper, chopped
2 oz black olives, sliced or chopped
1/2 cup pizza sauce, store bought or homemade
Pizza dough (I used Pillsbury classic crust)
2 cups mozzarella cheese
In a skillet over medium heat, cook the Italian sausage until it is no longer pink and cooked through (about 8-10 minutes). Add the yellow peppers and cook another 3 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and allow to cool just a bit.
Preheat oven according to dough instructions. On a greased cookie sheet, stretch out the dough (mine fit nicely on a 15"x10" cookie sheet). Spread the sauce evenly over the dough. Top with cooked sausage and peppers. Add the black olives and cover with cheese. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Remove from oven, slice, and enjoy!
