  • 3 - 4 spicy Italian sausages, casings removed, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) pizza sauce
  • 1 can Pillsbury* Refrigerated Pizza Crust
  • 2 cups (500 mL) shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 medium plum (Roma) tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow bell pepper, chopped (1 cup/250 mL), if desired
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped fresh cilantro or green onions, if desired


  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, cook sausage over medium heat, stirring occasionally to crumble sausage, until no longer pink; drain and remove from skillet. Gently stir pizza sauce into sausage to coat; set aside.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 18x12-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil; place on large cookie sheet. Spray foil with cooking spray. Unroll dough onto sprayed foil. Starting at centre, press out dough into 13x9-inch rectangle. Spray dough with cooking spray.
  • 3
    Invert dough rectangle directly onto grill rack; peel off foil and return foil to cookie sheet, sprayed side up. Cook uncovered on gas grill over medium-low heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium-low coals 3 to 5 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. (Watch carefully to prevent burning.) With wide metal pancake turner, turn crust over. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer or until bottom is set but not brown. Carefully remove from grill; place browned side up on foil. Close grill.

    Spoon and spread sausage mixture over crust. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups of the cheese. Top with tomatoes and bell pepper; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
  • 5
    Slide pizza from foil onto grill. Garnish with cilantro. To serve, cut into 6 rows by 3 rows. Cover grill; cook 3 to 6 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Success: Have all toppings ready to go because the crust cooks quickly. If the crust is cooking too fast, move the pizza to a cooler part of the grill or reduce the heat.
