This easy-to-make and easy-to-love recipe gives America’s favorite food the Tillamook treatment. May you never have to endure an ordinary pizza again.
“This hearty pizza combines the sweetness of the fennel sausage, the creaminess of the Tillamook Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, and the strong musty flavor of the Italian Tallegio Cheese. A crowd favorite!” – Greg Morris of The Oaks Gourmet
1 lb (16 oz) pre-made pizza dough, divided into 4 equal portions
12 oz of pizza tomato sauce
3 cups (12 oz) of Tillamook® Shredded Italian Blend Cheese
16 oz cooked fennel sausage, with casing removed and chopped into 1” chunks
12 oz of Tallegio Cheese
Preheat oven to 500 °F. For each mini pizza, roll out pizza dough to approximately 10 inches, and spread 3 oz of tomato sauce in a circular pattern. Top with 3 oz of Tillamook Shredded Italian Blend Cheese, then spread 4 oz of cooked fennel sausage on the pizza. Sprinkle 3 oz of Tallegio on the top. Transfer mini pizzas to a pizza stone or similar style oven-safe platter. Bake the mini pizzas for 8-12 minutes, until cheese is bubbling and crust is crispy and light brown. Cut each mini pizza into 4 slices.
