Quick Homemade Pizza with Stuff Crust

1 - 13.8 oz thick crust refrigerated pizza dough
2 cloves of fresh garlic
1/2 cup Spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce
1 Bell pepper 1/2 red and 1/2 green or any color you choose chopped
10 - Mozzarella cheese sticks
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese ( I like the low fat) or more if you like real cheesy!
1/2 cup Red onions chopped
1/2 lb. Ground Sausage
Pineapple cut in chunks (I like using fresh cut pineapple) or buy a can already in chunks drained.
Basil
Italian seasoning
Parmesan cheese grated
2 tbs of olive oil
1 tbs of cornmeal
And Any topping you like for pizza!

Preheat the oven to 425.

I use a large baking stone to cook the pizza when I make this dish. Spread one tbs of olive oil on the baking stone and then sprinkle cornmeal on top. Cook the sausage until it is brown with no pink and set aside. Spread the dough out on the cooking stone and set the mozzarella sticks on the edges and then wrap the dough over them and seal them in. Use a garlic pressed and spread fresh garlic over the dough and make sure it is spread evenly. Pour 1 tbs of olive oil over the garlic and dough. Make sure it is spread evenly and on the dough that covers the mozzarella sticks. Now spread the spaghetti or pizza sauce evenly on top.

Now is the time to add the toppings. Spread the ground sausage, bell peppers, chopped onions and pineapple chunks then sprinkle basil and Italian seasoning. Cover the pizza with cheese. Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until the crust is brown and the cheese is melted. Remember it is Pizza so you can top it with any toppings that you personally like!

Use the Parmesan cheese on your own individual pieces to taste!

With my family it feeds 4 with one slice left over! Enjoy!
