It was a gorgeous day today, so I tried a new recipe on the grill. It’s a Weight Watcher’s recipe and very yummy! Easy too! 5 points each. The original recipe called for chicken sausages, but we used Sweet Italian Turkey Sausage. Maria didn’t want any, so I grilled her a grilled cheese sandwich on the grill. We ate fresh pineapple on the side, and it was delicious!
Grilled Pizza with Sausage, Onions and Peppers
6 oz cooked chicken or turkey sausage, about 2 links, halved lengthwise, thinly sliced
1 small red onion(s), cut into thin slivers
1 small yellow pepper(s), cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices*
1/2 cup(s) pizza sauce, or tomato sauce
4 medium whole wheat tortilla(s)
1 tsp dried oregano
3/4 cup(s) part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
Preheat an outdoor grill to medium (or a grill pan over medium-high heat). Place sausage, onion and pepper on grill in a grill basket; cook, flipping once, until sausage is golden and vegetables start to brown, about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from grill and set aside until ready to use.
To prepare pizzas, spread 2 tablespoons of sauce on each tortilla. Sprinkle each with 1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano and then top each with 1/4 of sausage-vegetable mixture; top each with 3 tablespoons of cheese.
Place pizzas on grill (or as many as will fit on grill pan at one time) and cook until edges begin to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes; rotate pizzas. Continue cooking until cheese is bubbly, about 2 to 4 minutes more. (If all 4 pizzas do not fit on grill pan at once, repeat with remaining ingredients.) Yields 1 pizza per serving.
* I used 1/2 green and 1/2 orange, because I had them sliced and on hand already.
