Spicy Mushroom Pizza

Spicy kick craved by many and only two ingredients can answer very well to that in pizza - sausages and pepperoni. In this case, we will use pepperoni from My Recipes that substitutes sausages with a healthier fix which s a low fat, low calorie turkey. 

1 pound refrigerated fresh pizza dough
Cooking spray
4 ounces hot turkey Italian sausage
1 cup thinly sliced onion $
1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
1 cup diced red or green bell pepper $
1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup lower-sodium marinara sauce (such as McCutcheon's) $
1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

1. Preheat oven to 450°.
2. Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray; let dough stand, covered, for 15 minutes.
3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Remove casings from sausage. Add sausage to pan; cook 3 minutes, stirring to crumble. Add onion and mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes. Add bell pepper; sauté 2 minutes.
4. Sprinkle a baking sheet with cornmeal; roll dough into a 12-inch circle on prepared baking sheet. Spread sauce over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with sausage mixture. Sprinkle cheeses over sausage mixture. Bake at 450° on bottom oven rack for 17 minutes or until crust is golden.
