1/2
cup chopped green bell pepper
1

1
can (8 oz) pizza sauce
1

Expert Tips

Did you know? Pillsbury has a gluten free pizza dough.

Check the grocery store meat department or an Italian deli for bulk sausage labeled sweet (mild) or hot.

Keep refrigerated dough, such as pizza dough, chilled in the original package until you are ready to use it. Refrigerated dough is easy to work with when it is very cold.
