1 pound bulk italian sausage
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup pizza sauce (recipe follows)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning and/or basil
3 1/2 ounces pepperoni, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped (2 ounces)
1lb whole milk mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup red onion, slivered (1 ounce)
crushed red pepper, optional
1. Brown the sausage with the mushrooms; drain the grease. Grease a 7x9" deep baking dish (or 7x12" shallow baking dish) and put in the meats, mushrooms, peppers and the mozzarella cubes. Top with the red onion.
2. Sprinkle with a little more garlic powder, Italian seasoning and a little crushed red pepper flakes, if you like. Bake at 350º for 45-55 minutes until nicely browned and a knife inserted in the center comes out almost clean. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving.
