PIZZA ON A STICK
Yield: 12 servings
11 oz. Italian chicken sausage links, sliced into 1-inch pieces
24 whole mushrooms
24 cherry tomatoes
1 red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 green peppers, cut into 1-inch pieces
24 slices turkey pepperoni (about 2 oz.)
12 bamboo skewers
1 (15 oz.) container pizza dough
2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 ½ cups pizza sauce, warmed
Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Heat sausage pieces in a large skillet over medium heat until browned. Let cool.
Thread sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, green pepper and pepperoni alternately onto skewers.
Roll pizza dough out to about ¼ to ½-inch thick. Cut into 12 1-inch strips. Pierce the pointed end of a skewer through one end of a dough strip and wrap the dough around the skewer, leaving room for meats and vegetables to show through. Wrap the other end of the dough strip around the skewer above the top ingredient. Repeat with remaining dough strips and skewers.
Place skewers on prepared baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Bake for about 20 minutes, until vegetables are tender and pizza crust is golden brown. Sprinkle skewers with cheese and return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve with pizza sauce.
