Recipe Box, Spring Green Sausage & Vegetable Pizza Pie

Happy Pie day,

as in Pi Day, 3/14, the mathematical constant pi ¶

Let’s celebrate with a deep dish pizza pie!

This one is loaded with green vegetables and sausage

I used asparagus

Brussels sprouts

Fresh spinach

Use any cooked vegetables or combo you like

Brown sausage, and drain on paper towels but leave the fat in the pan to saute the vegetables

I sauteed the Brussels sprouts first, until they were golden and just beginning to char

The asparagus spears were crisp tender after 2 minutes in the microwave and then they were added to the sprouts in the skillet, and then the spinach on top

Covering the pan will make quick work of wilting down the spinach

Now the vegetables were ready to be put in the pizza crust

I used a springform pan, lined it with the crust, pushing the dough up the sides, and spread it with pesto

Put a generous layer of cheese on the pesto

Stir sausage into vegetables and put mixture on top of cheese in pan

Pour Alfredo sauce slowly and evenly over all

Finish with a Parmesan cheese topping

You can put this in the refrigerator at this point and bake it later if you want to make it early in the day and pop it in the oven before dinner

Let it rest for 5-10 minutes before releasing the pizza from the springform pan and cutting
