Ricotta Pesto Pizza with Chicken, Veg, and Sliced Leftover Sausage

I had a container of ricotta left from the batch I made the other day. I had a couple of leftover leek sausages. I had the idea to make a pizza using ricotta mixed with red pesto in place of the sauce, and topping it with some other stuff. Today, I gave it a try. Success! We both loved it!
I mixed the ricotta with some red pesto
and spread it on my usual pizza crust, made in the bread maker using oats and strong wholemeal flour
I sauteed 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in some olive oil with a chopped onion and a chopped yellow bell pepper, sprinkling some Italian season in when it was just about cooked through. I spread this on the crust and sliced the 2 sausages, putting them evenly over the top.
I put cheese over the top and stuck it in the oven, where I already had some carrot, potato, onion, and garlic, tossed with olive oil and sprinkled with Italian seasoning cooking away.
 As I always try to do, I made enough so that we had enough for supper tonight with enough left for supper tomorrow night.

I hope it's a good day where you are!

My gosh! That sounds delicious. I have never even heard of leek sausages. We are big on bratwursts in Wisconsin and LOTS of cheese. We are the dairy state and there are huge farms all over Wisconsin....lots of cheese factories. Cheese curds are a big thing here, too...the fresh ones squeak when you chew them and they sometimes batter them and deep fry them. lol

Have a wonderful Sunday- Hugs- Diana
