Meat filling Edit

  1. In a large skillet cook Italian sausage and onion until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain Fat.
  2. Pat with paper towels to remove additional fat.
  3. Stir in pizza sauce, mushrooms, pepperoni, basil, oregano, and red pepper.

Crust Edit

  1. On a lightly floured surface roll ⅔ of the bread dough into a 12-inch circle. (if necessary, let dough rest once or twice during rolling.)
  2. Carefully place the circle in a greased 9-inch spring-form pan, pressing the dough 1½ inches up the sides.

Pizza Edit

  3. Pat spinach dry with paper towels.
  4. Mix spinach, egg, and remaining mozzarella cheese.

  9. Brush top with melted margarine or butter and sprinkle with Parmesan or Romano cheese.
  10. Bake in a 375°F oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until filling is hot and bread is done. If Necessary, cover with foil the last 10 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning.
