Homemade Sausage and Mushroom Pizza

Now that we're living up in Putnam Valley, we found that we don't eat out much.  I was really craving pizza tonight but most of the recipes for pizza dough require it to sit overnight.  I found a recipe on that only requires an hour to sit before baking.

I used some leftover chicken & apple sausage and mushrooms for the topping.  For the sauce, I used a 28oz can of whole plum tomatoes and I winged it with the ingredients...we had some fresh basil from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and it smelled so incredibly good.

We still have a ton of basil so we may have to make some pesto soon.
