    A very tasty but easy pizza, full of flavour thanks to Italian sausage. Using French loaves as the pizza base makes it super easy. Great for watching a match!

    OH so yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I made my own crust rather than the bread idea. I used two small red onions; didn't use the olives. The combination of flavors was wonderful! Such a recipe to cherish - thanks oodles for sharing it with us!  -  18 Mar 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used spicy pork sausage, black olives, 1/4 of one onion sliced in half circles. Added seeded chunks of Super red chile and yellow bell pepper from the garden--baked for 15 minutes on Valentino's crust (kneeded for 7-8 minutes). Mouth-watering pizza.  -  05 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used pizza sauce for more flavor. Also good on homemade or store bought crusts.  -  05 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
