Sausage, Broccoli Rabe and Cheese Pizza

Sausage Rabe Pizza

Make two  pizzas because one disappears.

This is the recipe for one.

One pound of pizza dough

8 ounces of Monterrey Jack cheese

One pound of crumbled, fried and drained Italian sausage

One large chopped onion

4 cloves chopped garlic

Two bags of frozen chopped rabe.

Thaw, drain and squeeze dry.

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon red pepper

8 tablespoons olive oil

12 slices of provolone cheese

Parmesan cheese

Grease a large pizza pan with a thin coating of Crisco

Stretch out the dough to the edges of the pan.

Layer the Monterrey Jack cheese

Cook the sausage with the chopped onion and drain off most of the fat.

Spread over the cheese

Fry the garlic in the olive oil till soft

Add the rabe and just cook till everything is warm and coated with the garlic oil

Season with the salt and pepper.

Taste now to see if you need more salt

Place on top of the sausage

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese

Layer the provolone on top

Bake in a 475 degree oven , on the bottom oven rack for 15 to 20 minutes or until the bottom crust is golden brown.

I served this as an appetizer and it easily could have been the main course with a bowl of soup and salad.
