Sausage and Olives Pizza

This is our favorite pizza ever!! The only way I like olives is on this pizza, so even if you're not an olive fan, give it a try!



Ingredients (for two 16-in thin-crust pizzas):

6 ounces cooked spicy Italian turkey sausage
1 can black olives, sliced
1 can green olives, sliced
8–16 ounces shredded mozzarella (depending on how cheesy you like your pizza)
Rosemary, dried or fresh
Herb oil (recipe follows)
Coarse salt
Ground pepper

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425ยบ, with a pizza stone on the bottom rack (if using. If not, grease a pizza pan or baking sheet). Brush rolled-out dough with herb oil. Top with cheese, sausage, olives. Sprinkle with rosemary, coarse salt and pepper, and a little more herb oil. Bake 7–9 minutes.


Herb Oil

Ingredients:
1 sliced or minced garlic clove
2 teaspoons rosemary, fresh or dried
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Directions:
In a small saucepan, bring garlic, rosemary and olive oil to a simmer over medium heat and cook three minutes. Let cool to room temperature in a small bowl.
