Serves: 4 servings (3/4 pizza or 3 slices)
 
Ingredients
  • 3 oz ground mild Italian turkey sausage
  • 1 cup thinly sliced zucchini
  • ¼ cup prepared basil pesto, divided
  • 1 (12 oz) pkg. of 3 (7-inch) prebaked pizza crusts (such as Mama Marys)
  • 3 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, torn into marble-sized pieces
  • ⅛ tsp crushed red pepper
  • 2 Tbsp fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add sausage and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until cooked through or about 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer sausage to a paper towel-lined plate. Add zucchini and 1 tablespoon pesto to the hot skillet; cook, stirring often, until zucchini is slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Place pizza crusts on a baking sheet, and spread 1 tablespoon of remaining pesto over each of the 3 pizza crusts. Top crusts evenly with zucchini mixture, sausage, mozzarella, and red pepper. Bake until crusts are crisped on edges and cheese is melted, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle evenly with basil. Cut each pizza into 4 slices and serve immediately.
