Roll the pizza dough into an oblong shape. I used a sake bottle to do – works great and you can pop it in the dishwasher for quick cleanup.

Combine one link of Italian sausage and three of the mushrooms in food processor & pulse. Transfer to a pan and cook to a golden brown (or use leftovers from the Vegan Stuffed Mushroom recipe). Add sausage mixture to a large mixing bowl.

Sauté chopped red pepper and onion until tender. Add to sausage mixture.
