  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

  1. Lightly oil one 14 inch round pizza pan; sprinkle lightly with cornmeal. Roll and stretch pizza dough to fit pan. Let rise 20 minutes.
  2. Remove sausages from casings; saute meat in skillet until no longer pink. Add tomato sauce; cook, stirring often, until juices have evaporated and mixture is almost dry, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Spread meat mixture over dough; sprinkle with Parmesan.
