1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust depending on spice levels)
⅓ cup shredded 2% Mozzarella cheese
⅓ cup part-skim ricotta cheese
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh basil (chopped)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
De-case turkey sausage by slicing through sausage casing. Add a teaspoon of olive oil and turkey sausage to pan on medium heat. Break up sausage intermittently until sausage is cooked and browned.
After the sausage is cooked, place in a bowl and to the side. Next add your turkey bacon slices to the pan. Cook for 2-3 min per side or until cooked through. Chop the turkey bacon into small pieces and place to the side.
Spread the pizza sauce evenly across the top surface of the pizza crust, leaving at least a ½ inch edge around the outside. Sprinkle the crushed red pepper flakes over the pizza sauce, followed by the shredded mozzarella. After that, add dollops of the ricotta around your pizza. Add the cooked sausage crumbles and turkey bacon bites. Lastly, add the chopped basil and Italian seasoning over top.
Place the pizza in your preheated over (straight onto the oven rack) and bake for 7-10 minutes depending on how crispy you like your crust!
