Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray or grease 15x10x1-inch pan (dark pan for thin crust). Unroll dough in pan. Starting at center, press out dough to edge of pan.
  • 2
    Remove sausage from casings; place in 10-inch skillet. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently and breaking up sausage, until no longer pink. Remove sausage from skillet; drain well on paper towels. In blender, place tomato sauce and chipotle chile. Cover; blend on high speed until smooth.
  • 3
    Spread tomato sauce mixture evenly over crust. Sprinkle cooked sausage, cilantro, olives and cheese over sauce.
  • 4
    Bake classic crust 15 to 18 minutes, thin crust 12 to 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is crisp and lightly browned. Cut into 8 servings.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

    Tip if using classic crust: For a crispier crust, prebake crust 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown, then add toppings; bake pizza 12 to 15 minutes.
