Sausage, Zucchini, & Tomato Pizza

Woohoo! Friday has arrived.

I don’t know why, but I always associate Friday’s with pizza. Hence, today’s post. And there’s something about homemade pizza, that just makes my taste buds tingle. Mmm!

Last Friday was a fun Friday too. Two of my sister’s (Margaret & Eliza) and I went to Wine & Design where we indulged in food and drinks while making a hilarious attempt at drawing a painting that the instructor taught us how to do step-by-step.

Let’s just say, I’m not artistically inclined when paint is involved. Only when there’s chocolate or sugar present am I remotely ‘good’ at it. 😉

Are you artistic? Or are you like me and totally not?


Sausage, Zucchini, & Tomato Pizza

dough adapted from bellalimento


  • 2 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/4 cup Jiffy Mix
  • 1 cup mariana sauce
  • 1/2 pound organic sweet italian sausage, sautéed
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced thin
  • 1 large ball of fresh mozzarella, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning


  1. In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the flour and yeast.
  2. Pour in the olive oil and water until the dough comes together to form a ball that is tacky, but not sticky. Trust me, you’ll know what this means when you go to pick up the dough.
  3. Place in a bowl that has been sprayed with canola oil, cover, and let rise for about 2 hours in a warm place, until doubled.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. Roll out on a Jiffy Mix floured surface.
  6. Place on a baking sheet.
  7. Spread with mariana sauce, leaving a 1″ border for the crust.
  8. Top with the sausage, tomato, zucchini, mozzarella, and Italian seasoning.
  9. Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly.
  10. Slice and enjoy!
