Jalapeño Sausage and Cheese Pizza
Jalapeño Sausage and Cheese Pizza
I know I’m on overload when it seems that pizza is becoming a regular visitor at our home. We do love pizza, pasta and salads all year round. So to end June and move into BBQ July, here is another quick and easy pizza with my Costco pepperoni base.
I love those roadshows Costco does, sometimes I end up spending more which is part of Costcos plan I’m sure.
So the other day I was making gumbo and needed hot links and to my luck sausage roadshow!!! TWR has some of the best tasting uncured sausage and brats. These Jalpeno Ceddar beef n pork inspired this pizza.
For melting and adding some string cheese action I use Frigo mozzarella and shred myself, ok hubby shreds for me. It cost less and does taste better.
I had to use up my baby bellas and I wanted to get some green color. So Itialan flag green, white and red!!! 🇮🇹🇮🇹🇮🇹
Cilantro, spinach, garlic and tomatoes TADA!!
First drop drop down that cheese and spread it all it around.
Rough chop the spinach and cilantro and let it rain green.
I really let it rain lol then add your sliced mushrooms.
Grate your garlic right on top, less is more because garlic can really overpower this way.
Next st add your fresh sliced tomatoes, I love the hot house Campari.
NOTE: Campari is a type of tomato, noted for its juiciness, high sugar level, low acidity, and lack of mealiness. Camparis are deep red and larger than a cherry tomato, but smaller and rounder than a plum tomato. Of course if my garden had tomatoes that made it inside, I would have used those lol 🍅🍅🍅
Last but not least the Jalpeno Cheddar Brats sliced and placed so everyone gets some on every slice.
We we do bake these loaded pizzas at 400 for 15 mins but always check at 12 mins because burning a pizza really sucks!!!
Awwww just look at that beauty…gotta go! 🍕🍕🍕
Tip: using a pizza stone that has been preheated in the oven is key for a perfect crispy crust and a completely cooked middle.
We cook many things on this including my wild yeast breads. Outta all the pizza stones this is the best for the price. Larger then most, easy to season and only $5-8 what is it?? Ceramic floor tile, from Homedepot.
Thats right a 18×18″ ceramic floor tile but first you have to season it.
To do this, you need to open all your windows, wash the tile in warm soapy water, set it in the oven and turn up to 500. Bake that tile for at least 1 hour. I promise it will smell. Turn off the oven and leave the tile to naturally cool.
After it has cooled wipe the top of the stone with a warm soapy sponge and dry with a paper towel. Then add bacon grease or tallow or even avocado oil, rub it in so it does not drip everywhere smoking and start a fire. It needs to be a fat that can cook at really high temperatures. Bake it again on 450 for 30 minutes. We like to repeat this a few times. Always let it cool in the oven naturally, so it does not crack. If you treat this like a good cast iron pan it will last for years. This stone is over five years old now. Our first one only lasted a couple years because we did not let it cool in the oven and it cracked into three pieces.
