Is it a pizza or is it a casserole? When it's this delicious, it doesn't matter!


  • 1 pound Scott Pete Polish Sausage, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 pound fresh pizza dough
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup low moisture mozzarella, shredded
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce

  • 1 tablespoon of dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat a skillet using medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons olive oil.  Cook the sausage rounds until brown on one side, then flip and cook until brown.
  3. Grease the inside of a 12-inch skillet with the butter.  Place the pizza dough in skillet, starting in the center and evenly spreading towards the bottom edge and up the sides.
