I love making my Gluten-Free Pizza with Sweet or Hot Italian Turkey Sausage and making it healthy!

Thanks to Jennie-O Turkey Store and their very tasty, Gluten-Free Sausage.  Choose either, Jennie-O – Lean Sweet Italian or Lean Hot Italian Turkey Sausage.  Now you can enjoy the flavor of sausage with 65% less fat than pork sausage. I like to pre-cook my sausage in a pan, always to 165 degrees.  Once the sausage is done I remove it from the heat and set it aside to cool.  I must admit the aroma that wafts throughout my kitchen while I am cooking this sausage makes me extremely hungry. Once it cools, I admit , I have to oversee quality control in my kitchen, no more resistance as I dive in to try a bite or two! So much flavor and very little fat makes me feel confident about using Jennie-O products.

 While the sausage is cooking, I heat my pizza stone and my oven to 400 degrees.  I bake my Gluten-Free pizza crust.  While the crust is baking I get my toppings ready. I cut the sausage into 1/4 inch thick slices. I make my Kale and Marcona Almond Pesto sauce. Once the crust is ready I add the pesto and sausage.   I add just a little sprinkle of cheese, a combination of parmesan and mozzarella, then a generous hand of  chopped red onion. *This pizza is great without the cheese if you avoid dairy.   When I take the pizza out I add fresh minced basil and red chili pepper flakes!  The heat from the pizza releases the aroma of the basil, chili peppers and the sausage!

Dive in everyone! 

The key to healthy cooking is adding flavor without fat.  I  also make my Gluten-Free pizzas with my favorite roasted vegetables, Summer squash, sweet Walla-Walla onions and Jennie-O Lean Hot Italian Turkey Sausage. I love the combination of the sweetness from the veggies and the spicy kick from the sausage.  Really any of your favorite combinations of vegetables and Jennie-O sausage will do! They even have Bratwurst, Kielbasa and Bacon all made with Turkey and all Gluten-Free! Please go to the Jennie-O website and Facebook page to find out more about their Gluten-Free products.

Salud!
