INGREDIENTS:

2 Balls Marczyk-Made Pizza Doughs
1 Ball of Marczyk Mozzarella
1 Bunch of Fresh Broccoli Rabe
2 Hot or Sweet Italian Sausages
8 oz of Marczyk Marinara

DIRECTIONS:

  1. PREPARE THE RABE: Wash the stalks and cut the leafy parts into 1 to 2 inch lengths. Peel the stems and cut into 2 inch pieces. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, and cook for about 3 minutes or until tender. Drain.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil and cook two cloves of garlic peeled and minced until sizzling. Add salt, pepper, and a dash of red pepper flakes.
  3. Return the broccoli rabe to the pot and cook a minute or two more in the seasoned oil, and cool.
  4. In a skillet, heat the oil, then remove the sausage meat from the casings and cook until lightly browned, breaking the meat up with a fork as it cooks, and set aside. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 C) (533.15 K) (really hot).
  5. Roll out one ball of dough into a 12 to 14 inch circle and place on a cornmeal-dusted pizza peel.
  6. Spoon some of the tomato sauce onto the pizza, spreading it to within 1 inch of the edge. Place cheese slices over the sauce, then top with some of the broccoli rabe and sausages.
  7. Cook for about 12 to 15 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned and the cheese is bubbly. Serve immediately.
