Meat Lovers' Sheet Pan Pizza

Homemade pizza is the best pizza and this sheet pan pizza has loads of meat!

I have made very few sheet pan pizzas in my life. I think I may have gotten spoiled on making circle-shaped pizzas, not that they taste different, but they kinda do....right? I liked that this recipe didn't try to do anything crazy with the crust and I got to use my favorite recipe. As a child, my mom often bought premade dough and did sheet pan pizzas and they weren't my favorite. But I think this one (and another one I made years ago) have changed my mind. This meat lovers' pizza has 3 different meats: Italian sausage (you can go mild or hot), pepperoni, and ham. No reinventing the wheel here - a classic delish pizza!

What you need:
  • 16 oz. Italian sausage
  • Pizza dough (my favorite recipe)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 1 lb. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oz. diced ham
  • 4 oz. pepperoni
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • Dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Cook the sausage in a medium skillet over medium heat until cooked through, crumbling as you go.
  2. Roll pizza dough out on a lightly floured surface to fit the size of your baking sheet. Transfer and press to fit to the edges. 
  3. Top dough with pizza sauce followed by cheese. Then top with meats and sprinkle with parsley, salt, and pepper.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are puffed and golden brown.

If you're ready for a little reinventing of the wheel, this Chili Cheese Fries Pizza is two fun things in one! I would love to try this Sicilian Sheet Pan Pizza from Chef Billy Parisi with homemade sauce, three meats, and veggies.
