tomato, potato & chicken sausage pizza
Place the potato slices on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and, using your hands, mix to combine and then spread potato slices evenly on the sheet. Bake for 10 minutes until lightly golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside. Don't turn off oven.
Heat a medium saute pan over medium high heat. Remove chicken sausages from casing and saute until browned. Remove from heat and set aside.
Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface and place on pizza stone (or other pan). Cook for about 3 - 4 minutes until the crust just starts to puff up. Remove from oven and brush the entire surface with the herb olive oil. Layer with mozzarella, potato slices, tomato slices, chicken sausage and then Parmesan-Reggiano cheese. Brush the outer crust with more herb olive oil and bake again until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown (about 12 - 14 minutes). Remove from oven and sprinkle with basil.
