  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray the bottom only of a 13x9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray. Press and form pizza dough into bottom and 2-inches up the sides of pan. Top with cheese slices to cover entire bottom of dough.
  2. In small bowl, combine crushed tomatoes and Mama Mia™ Marinara Sauce Mix. Generously spread sauce over cheese and dough (about ¾-1 cup). Refrigerate remaining sauce to serve with pizza for dipping.
  3. Cut or pull sausage apart into ½-¾-inch pieces and place all over sauce. Sprinkle with Rustic Herb Seasoning and pizza cheese. Bake 30 minutes or until desired doneness.
  4. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Warm reserved sauce in the microwave and serve for dipping.

Makes 6 servings.

Serve with a green salad and Rustic Herb Dressing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So yummy and easy! I’ve made this pizza twice now and it’s so easy and delicious both times. Prep took less time than to preheat my oven. I use sweet Italian sausage on mine and the Rustic Herb just seems to compliment it so well. Definitely on our rotation menu!
