What’s Fresh at Trout Lake – Oct 8th
Sausage, Red Bell Pepper & Spinach Pesto Pizza
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan
- 1/4 pine nuts, toasted
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 Tbs
- 1 Italian sausage, casing removed (such as Stapleton Sausages, pictured)
- 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into thin sticks
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1 pre-made 12-inch thin pizza crust
- coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- In a food processor, blitz the spinach, garlic, parmesan, pine nuts, and a good pinch of salt and pepper. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin stream until pesto-y. Set aside.
- Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a medium skillet and add the sausage. Break up with a wooden spoon and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
- To the pan, add the red pepper. Add a little more oil if needed. Throw a teeny dash of salt in there.
- Grab your crust and evenly spoon the pesto over it. Sprinkle a little cheese on top. Then add some sausage. Then some cheese. Then some peppers.
- Bake according to package directions, (around 10 minutes) slice it up and eat the WHOLE THING.
