Ratatouille Pizza

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 cloves Garlic, Minced
13 whole Red Onion
Crushed Red Pepper
Salt And Pepper
3/4 pounds Spicy Italian Sausage
2 whole Red Potatoes, Sliced Thinly
1 jar (about 16 Oz. Jar) Pizza Sauce
1 whole Pizza Dough
1/2 whole Zucchini, Sliced Thinly
1/2 whole Yellow Squash, Sliced Thinly
2 whole Plum Tomatoes, Sliced Thinly
1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 bunch Fresh Basil, Sliced


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Fill a small saucepan with water, cover, and bring to a boil. While waiting for the water to boil, heat a bit of olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Mince the garlic and slice the onion, then add both to the hot pan. Stir until the onion is translucent and the garlic is lightly browned. Add a few pinches of crushed red pepper, salt and pepper, and stir. Add the sausage to the pan and break it up with a wooden spoon. Once your water is boiling, add the sliced potatoes to the pot and turn the heat down to medium high, leaving the lid ajar. Cook potatoes for about 5 minutes or until soft. Drain and set aside. When the sausage is cooked through, add the pizza sauce to the sausage mixture and simmer. Flour a pizza pan and roll the dough out thin. Spread about half the sausage mixture over the dough. Add the sliced veggies to the pizza by alternating zucchini, yellow squash, potato, and tomato. Make sure the veggies are overlapping so you have enough room for them all. You can also spiral them to the center of the pizza for a pretty presentation. Top the veggies with the remaining sausage mixture (try to make sure there is sauce covering the veggies so they can absorb the liquid). Top with cheese and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Top with basil when it comes out of the oven and enjoy!
