Sausage, Red Pepper, & Spinach Pizza

30 Nov

Hey Loves! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving because I sure did. We had a busy Thanksgiving week in Jersey with my family between cooking, running around, and two parties. Even with all the work, I really enjoyed myself. Yesterday my love and I went to pick up my 2ND (the 1st was my iPad)  early Christmas present 🙂 yup I know. I think I am kinda spoiled. Oh well. lol. I have a brand new Kitchen Aid 5Qt  stand mixer that I am sooooooo excited about. 🙂 The first thing I whipped up was some pizza dough. It was so simple and quick. I know I am going to have so much fun with this mixer. There are endless things I can use this for. The Only thing it doesn’t do is cook for you so I had to put this pizza in the oven myself. lol. I made a whole wheat crust. Of course Bryan would rather have regular white crust, but he thought it was pretty good. If you don’t care for wheat crust, just change the wheat flour to all purpose flour. I topped my pizza with marinara, turkey sausage, spinach, red pepper and shredded Italian cheese. Go crazy and use your favorite toppings. Enjoy.
