Easy White Pizza with Sausage

Easy Sausage Pizza

Don’t look at this pizza for one second and think my kids ate this.

They did not.

Boring kids that they are, they got cheese.

Friday night is homemade pizza night at our house.

Those kids of mine get cheese, but I always mix it up for the mans and I.

Ok, we all get that I’m weird…a bit off…so I’m just gonna come out and say it…..

I don’t like red sauce on my pizza.

I mean, sure I’ll eat it and all..I’ll eat anything you put in-font of me.  But I prefer a white pizza.

Mix up a ricotta mixture with some spices and olive oil, slather it on the crust, top with random things..mmmmmm.

Also, I’m not a big Italian Sausage person either.  ewww.

Well, Johnsonville sent me some coupons for their new Chicken Sausage.

I had the 3 Cheese Italian Sausage.

Ohhh, lord have mercy it was good. Like super good.

I only cooked one to slice and put on my pizza. But after I tasted it, I cooked up two more so the hubby and I could munch on them while the pizzas were cooking.

I have been cheating lately and using Flatbread Pizza Crust. My fav is Stonefire.
