Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and caraway seeds and sauté until onion just begins to brown, about 7 minutes. Transfer onion mixture to large bowl. Mix in sauerkraut and 1 tablespoon sauerkraut juice. Cool to lukewarm, then mix in cheese. Season generously with pepper.
  2. Place pizza crust on baking sheet. Spread with Dijon mustard and top with sausage, then sauerkraut mixture.
  3. Bake pizza until cheese melts, topping begins to brown and crust is crisp, about 15 minutes. Transfer pizza to work surface; cut into wedges and serve.

I made this exactly as posted, and did peel the skin off my sausages so that I wouldn%u2019t have to worry about the tough skin. I don%u2019t think this really tasted like a reuben, but it was very good. A great change to an ordinary pizza! Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT7.

What a great way to make pizza! I didn't have kielbasa so used pre-cooked crumbled italian sausage. I liked everything about this pizza and will definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Switzerland.

We loved it. I did use canned corned beef sliced into small rectangles for a more authentic reuben taste and used a bake and serve crust so the bake time was longer. Made for ZWT7.
