Sausage Roll...

Sausage Roll, a Family Favorite...

This is such an EASY recipe that we enjoy and makes a FUN meal 
for any day of the week, just add a tossed salad and dinner is served.

  • Italian Sausage, sweet and hot
  • Peppers
  • Onions
  • Pepperoni
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pizza Dough, homemade or store bought

Begin by removing the sausage from their casings and add to a hot pan...

With the back of a fork, begin to break up the sausage meat 
and cook until browned...

Roll out your pizza dough...

Add your cooked sausage...

Add the peppers and onions.
Now, you can cook these FIRST in the same frying pan after the sausage is done
or you can just add them uncooked, either way is fine.

I cooked the peppers and onions...

Add your pepperoni...

Now cover in mozzarella cheese...

Beginning at one end, start rolling your sausage roll...

Now you can just place your sausage roll on a greased cookie sheet 
and let rise for about 30 - 60 minutes, brush with an egg wash
 and bake in a 425 degree oven until golden brown...

The last time I made this, I "very carefully" placed the uncooked sausage roll in a greased bundt pan.  
I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it looked GREAT.
It was a little tricky but it made the slices so pretty.

Let this rise also for 30 - 60 minutes, brush with an egg wash (one beaten egg and one tablespoon of water) and then bake in a 400 degree oven until golden brown...


You can find the pizza dough recipe that I use HERE.
