I’ll be passing along some healthy and easy to fix Super Bowl Party food through out the week.

Low Fat Sausage, Mushroom and Red Pepper Pizza

We all love pizza, but not what it does to our waistlines. Make this simple and delicious low fat sausage, mushroom and red pepper pizza in less time than it would take to order in from your local pizza parlor.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

2 chicken-sausage links, spicy Italian or Buffalo style (such as al fresco chicken sausages)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 ready-to-bake pizza dough (such as Trader Joe’s Almost Whole Wheat Pizza Dough)
1/4 cup store-bought pizza sauce (such as Trader Joe’s)
1 7-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained and cut into strips
3/4 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Remove casings from sausage links. Crumble sausage meat into a small nonstick skillet placed on medium heat. No oil should be necessary. Add mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes until sausage pieces are browned. Remove with slotted spoon and rest on kitchen paper to drain of any fat.

Roll out pizza dough to a 12-inch circle on a floured surface and place on nonstick or lightly oiled pizza sheet. Spread tomato sauce thinly on base. Lay roast peppers on top. Add sausage and mushroom mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 10 minutes. Serves 6
