spicy sausage pizza | The Realationship Project


1 batch pizza dough (I used this one)

2 hot pork sausage links in casing (can also sub chicken sausage)

5-10 slices pepperoni

1 tbsp minced garlic

salt, red pepper flakes

8 oz. mushrooms, sliced

1/2-1 cup marinara, depending on how saucy you like it (I used roasted garlic from Trader Joe’s)

4-6 oz. mozzarella cheese (we tend to like more cheese), shredded


3-4 people


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. I used a low carb crust and followed the directions on site I linked above for pre-baking the crust. The crust was fully cooked when I added my toppings.
  3. While the crust is baking, heat a large pan over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil.
  4. Remove sausage from casing and add to pan.
  5. Break up sausage with a spatula and cook until fully cooked, about 5 minutes.
  6. Remove sausage and add mushrooms to the same pan. Add a drizzle olive oil if there’s not much fat from the sausage. Sprinkle with salt.
  7. Once the mushrooms have broken down, add minced garlic and stir, about 30 seconds. Add sausage back to pan and combine. Remove from heat.
  8. Add marinara to crust, then sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  9. Top with sausage, mushrooms, and pepperoni slices. I piled the pepperoni on top of sausage/mushroom mixture. You can reduce sausage to 1 link if you like less toppings.
  10. Bake for 3-5 minutes, just to warm everything through.
  11. Then broil until cheese is bubbling and slightly browned.
  12. Slice and sprinkle with red pepper flakes.
  13. Enjoy!
