2 Ciabatta loafs (or is it rolls? Whatever…)
2 Hot sausages
1 Cup mushrooms
1/2 Cup cheese
A Dash red pepper flakes
A Dash of Cayenne pepper
A pinch of garlic powder
1-2 Cups Italian tomato sauce
2 cups plain tomato sauce
1/2 cup onion
1 garlic clove
1 Cup mushrooms
1 TBS Italian seasoning
1 TSP Pepper
Step 1: Ciabatta, I knew Thee Well
Cut your Ciabatta bread in half and spread butter on the flat side. Add the garlic powder and set aside.
Step 2: Make Your Own Pizza Sauce! (or don’t)
Either buy premade Tomato sauce or follow these steps to make your own.
Toss the plain tomato sauce on a pan on medium and add chopped garlic and onions. Stir, and add in the pepper flakes and cayenne pepper. Let it reduce for about 8 minutes and turn off the heat. You can add meat or other ingredients if you want, we just did this because we forgot to buy that thick, chunky stuff you get from the store.
Step 3: Sausage! Oh, and Mushrooms…
Broil the sausage on tin foil until its slightly brown and done. Cut into little circles and set aside. Then place butter in another pan and set heat to high. Once it’s hot, add the mushrooms and stir for about 6 minutes. Take off heat and set aside.
Step 4: AutoPizza, Assemble!
Broil the Ciabatta for a a few minutes and take it out of the oven once it’s brown. Spread tomato sauce on the flat side, add mushrooms, cheese, and sausage. Add a little extra cheese on top if you want. Then throw it back into the oven for about 2 more minutes or until the cheese is all melty.
Step 5: Win
Profit. Eat this and pizza will never be the same. Don’t believe me? Yeah, well just try it. Use whatever toppings you want: chicken, pepperoni, smaller pizzas, fish, lama, pond-scum, the possibilities are endless!
