Sometimes you just need something a little spicy. Make our hot sausage pizza and you will get what you are craving. The sweet tomatoes, spicy sausage, and mellow bell peppers make a pizza that tastes great. Fire up your grill and let a few of these pizzas start to sizzle. They are so fast to make that you can add them to any meal. Grilling pizzas is the hottest new cooking trend; do not miss out on some of the tastiest pizza you will ever make.

Precook your sausage. You can use slices of sausage links if you like, but crumbled sausage works just fine. Choose your choice of sweet or hot Italian sausage for the best flavor. The creamy cheese melts all over the thin slices of tomatoes, creating an impromptu sauce. The peppers are at their best after being grilled. Be sure you toss the crusts on briefly before you add the toppings. This practice makes the crusts easier to handle and lets the crust brown slightly before you add your toppings.

Serve up this pizza cut into slices for an easy appetizer that everyone will remember. You can also serve individual pizzas as a complete meal or with a side salad. This grilled pizza recipe is one you will return to again and again because of its amazing flavor. You cannot get this from any restaurant; you have to make it at home on your own grill. Once you get the hang of it, you will wonder why you never threw a pizza on the grill before.

This recipe requires you to roll out the dough, and you can pick up a package of dough from the grocery store and just keep it until required. It is always worth keeping dough in the refrigerator or freezer because there are lots of things you can do with it, including making pie crusts and empanadas and, of course, pizza dough. You can also make your own if you wish, adding herbs, spices, cheese, or any other flavor you want. The peppers are basted with a garlic and rosemary mixture and then you can cook them on the barbeque until done. The sausage also needs to be cooked before you assemble the pizza. These ingredients go on to the prepared crust, along with tomatoes and cheese, and then you can barbeque it until done.

Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil over the pizza while you are cooking it, and you will not only get the lovely Italian flavor but it will also help keep the pizza moist and help the vegetables to crisp up in the heat of the barbeque. Although the recipe says you can use sweet or spicy Italian sausage, many people prefer to use hot sausage for that wonderful spicy flavor, although it is your pizza recipe so the choice is of course yours. This makes a wonderful meal, either lunch or dinner, or you can serve it as a snack. Nobody gets tired of pizza and a lot of people like to enjoy it at least once a week. Homemade pizza is more enjoyable than takeout or frozen pizzas. They not only look fresher and more appealing, but the flavor of a homemade pizza is awesome every time.
