Vegetable Pita Pizza Recipe

2 Garden Sausage patties
olive oil spray
1 15 ounce can crushed tomatoes or premade natural pizza sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
6 whole wheat pitas
1 cups Veggies pack, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 to 2 roasted red peppers, chopped
1 cup sliced green onions
6 black olives, pitted and chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese - optional


Heat the Garden Sausage in a hot skillet sprayed with olive oil spray. Approximately 3 minutes on each side will be needed. Dice into 1/4 inch pieces and set aside. Combine the crushed tomatoes, garlic powder, basil, oregano, and thyme in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook 3 minutes. (Or use premade natural pizza sauce). Preheat the oven to 375F. Spread each of the pitas with tomato sauce, then top with Veggie Pack, pieces of red peppers, green onions, and olives. Sprinkle with the diced Garden Sausage. Place on a baking sheet and bake until the edges just begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if using and serve.
