Super Bowl has come and gone….however I think back on all the crazy food we consume on this one day. From BBQ to deep frying, boiling, and baked. The world becomes obsessed with crazy good food on this one Sunday. Myself included I racked my brain for days trying to come up with something different and unique. So……this is it. Maybe you can help with a name. It is pizza, calzone, like….. but not.
- 2 thick canned pizza crust
- 1 package johnsonville Italian sausage (5) I used mild flavor
- 2 tomatoes
- 1-2 cloves garlic chopped fine or 1 large teaspoon dried
- Garlic salt- some pepper not much
- 1 teaspoon Italian herbs
- 1 onion
- 1 bell pepper
- 1/2 cup sliced Klamata olives drained
- 4 cups grated mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup (divided) 5 cheese Italian cheese, small package
- Bundt pan
- Biscuit cutter or something to cut out dough
Cook sausage until almost done, drain on paper towel. Grease bundt pan. Open one pizza crust package and spread out with fingers to increase size by an inch on all sides. In the center cut out hole and careful place inside bundt pan. Carefully pull dough up on sides if you can drape over just a bit. If it does not make it all the way around that is okay. The top crust will help fill in. The bottom will have a bow, it will flatten out as food is placed inside.
Chop sausage lengthwise and again, then chop across making quarters about bitesize pieces. Place half of the sausage on bottom crust. Cut onion in half and chop, place over sausage, cut pepper in half and chop, place over onion, chop one tomato place over pepper. Use 2 cups of cheese and layer over ingredients. Spread Klamata olives over cheese, then garlic, some garlic salt, herbs and a little pepper. Spread 1/2 cup 5 cheese over this. Next layer do the same with sausage, onion, pepper. Use 1 cup mozzarella cheese spread over ingredients. For the tomato slice it and layer over cheese. Press down gently. Add remaining cheeses except a tablespoon or so of the 5 blend. ( you will sprinkle that on top). Open second crust and spread out just a bit. Cut center hole and lay over cheese, gently pressing down on the sides, fold extra dough over itself on edges. Sprinkle top with remaining 5 cheese blend and a little garlic salt. Let sit for 1/2 hour. This helps the dough become airy.
It sounds complicated but it was really easy. The flavors blended wonderfully.
As always we hope you enjoy.
