Lasagna Stuffed Pizza
from The Picky Palate
2 16 oz packages pizza dough, (I just made one batch of this pizza dough)
1 lb Sweet Italian Sausage (I used reduced fat sausage and added Italian seasoning)
26 oz jar Pasta Sauce of choice
16 oz ricotta cheese
1/2 Cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Pinch of kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper
McCormicks Pizza seasoning or Italian seasoning, 1/4 tsp
extra virgin olive oil for brushing dough
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown sausage until browned. Drain and return back to skillet. Add pasta sauce and reduce heat to low to simmer.
2. Place ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella cheese and seasonings in a mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
3. Roll dough 1/4 inch thick. Use large circle cookie cutter (I used my smallest corningware bowl and cut around it) to cut into dough. Place half onto a lightly greased or silpat lined baking sheet. Fill each heart with a Tablespoon or so of sauce then top with a small spoonful of ricotta cheese. Top with remaining dough shapes and press edges with the tines of your fork. Brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with pizza seasoning.
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked through.
*Wow, these were delicious! I loved the pizza dough and filling, yum!
