READY IN: 1hr 15mins
YIELD: 4 6




  • In small bowl, mix ricotta cheese, chopped basil, oregano, garlic powder and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, until thoroughly blended. Set aside.
  • Peel onion and slice into rings.
  • Heat 1 tbs olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion slices and saute for about 3 minutes, separating rings as you stir. Stir in sugar and continue sauteing until onion begins to brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from pan into small bowl. Set aside.
  • Remove and discard stems from mushrooms and slice caps into 1/4 inch slices, getting about 8-10 slices from each mushroom.
  • In same pan used for onions, heat 3 tbs olive oil over medium heat and add mushroom slices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes, until mushrooms just begin to give off their liquid. Remove from pan to plate and set aside.
  • In same pan, cook the sausages until browned on all sides and cooked through. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Cut them crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F Lightly coat a large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray ( or use 2 small cookie sheets).
  • Open biscuits according to instructions on can. Take out 2 biscuits and with one stacked on the other, roll out on lightly floured surface with rolling pin, until 6-8 inches in diameter. Set on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining biscuits until you have four rounds.
  • Divide ricotta mixture among the 4 rounds, spreading it out to cover to within 1/2 inch of edge. Use your fingers for this.
  • Divide mushroom slices among the rounds, then the sausage slices, then the onions.
  • Sprinkle 2 tbs. Parmesan on each round. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until crusts are done, and toppings are hot. If using 2 cookie sheets, place one on upper rack and 1 on lower rack, and switch them halfway through cooking time. (If making the thinner crust, bake 10-15 minutes).
  • Remove from oven and cut each round in half and serve.
