Mediterranean Fusion Pizza

I found this ready to cook pizza dough in the deli section of the grocery store. It was easy and tasted good too. Pizzas are a great way to use up veggies in the fridge or get the whole family involved in the cooking. Kids love to create their own pizzas!
16 oz of ready to cook pizza dough
1 hot sausage link
1.6 oz package of Knorr Alfredo sauce
1 ¾ cup milk
1 tsp butter
2 Tbsp Classico Basil Pesto
1 small zucchini, sliced thinly
4 sundried tomato halves, diced
Fresh mozzarella, sliced
Herbed goat cheese
Minced freshly parsley, for garnish

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Over med-high heat, preheat a small frying pan. With wet hands, remove sausage from casing and crumble little meatballs into pan. Brown meatballs, but don’t cook through since we’ll be cooking them more while baking the pizza.

In a sauce pan over high heat, combine Alfredo sauce mix, milk and butter; whisk for 2 minutes until thickens. Remove from heat and whisk in pesto sauce; set aside.

On a greased baking or pizza pan layout dough. Spoon and spread Alfredo Pesto sauce. Arrange zucchini, tomatoes, sausage crumbles and cheese on top. Bake for 13-15 minutes, depending on thickness of dough.

Let pizza sit for a couple minutes before slicing. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve.

NOTE: Use leftover Alfredo Pesto sauce to make a B.L.A.S.T. or Shrimp Alfredo Pesto pasta.
