What a fun and easy way to make pizza! I used turkey Italian sausage and upped the sauce to 1-1/4 cups. I also omitted the mushrooms. Next time I plan to add green bell pepper and red onion as I like those on pizza. I used my toaster oven which tends to cook a little on the hot side, so baked the pizza for 20 minutes and then added the cheese and baked for another 5 minutes = perfectly cooked.
