Sausage and Peppers Pizza. (Healthy!)


28020_303256429775558_1540969230_n (1)These chicken sausage and pepper “pizzas” turned out delightful. I just had to share with you.

Here is what I used-

  • Medium sized mushrooms caps. 
  • Chicken sausage ( see below picture for more information).
  • Organic tomato basil sauce that I added the chopped mushroom stems, fresh basil, and fresh oregano to.
  • Part skim shredded mozzarella.
  • 1-2 tbsp of parmesan (optional).
  • Garlic powder
  • Mini sweet bell peppers

Can we talk about this awesome new food find? This chicken sausage is amazing. Living in the islands our food choices are normally limited, so when I spotted this at Publix I picked it up right away. I also got a pack of apple sausage.

Nutritional Info for 1 link 50 calories- Fat 2.5- Carbs 1- Protein 6

  1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Carefully remove from stems from mushrooms caps.  Reserve the stems. Chop them finely.
  3. Heat up sauce. I used about 1/2 a cup per serving. I took the leftover mushroom stems and added those to the sauce on low heat. Add fresh herbs. I like greek oregano, and basil. It gives the sauce a bit of a kick.
  4. Once sauce is cooked through, add 1 tbsp or so to each mushroom cap.
  5. Top with 1 tbsp of part skim mozzarella or cheese of choice.
  6. Chop sausage links (it’s already cooked) and add to top of cheese.
  7. Add mini multi colored peppers to top of pizzas.
  8. I next added a bit of extra greek oregano, and garlic powder. I also sprinkled a bit of parmesan on top.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!

Nutritional counts would vary with how much sauce, cheese, sausage you use, but this is a relatively low calories pizza. I would say below 200 calories, around 7.5 grams of fat, and 16 grams of protein. Add a side salad or something green and you have a really nice dinner.
