This was tonight's dinner - an adaptation of a recipe from the latest issue of Rachael Ray's magazine. The original called for using meat sauce and had their own recipe for dough. I changed the dough to my favorite pizza dough recipe and made the sauce with italian sausage instead of beef. I added pepperoni and 2 other cheeses to the original recipe. My son thought it was excellent. I loved the flavors.

NOTES : Risa's notes:
* If you can't find SAF brand than use any brand of fast rising yeast.
** Recipe adapted from pg 77 of February 2009 issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray. In the original, it uses beef, I used sweet italian sausage. If you have homemade meat sauce, use some. If not, than use a good commercial brand.
If you do not wish to make your own dough, than use dough from the local pizza place OR a good commercial brand such as Trader Joe's. If using bought dough, then just follow directions from rolling out the dough.
