Quick Facts:

Makes 32 pieces

Ingredients:

1 15 oz pizza dough mix (We used Bella Cucina) or 1 ½ lb pizza dough
2 – 12 oz packages of sausage links, there should be four in each package, 8 total (We used Edwards Hickory Smoked)
Egg wash
Extra sharp cheddar cheese
Grainy mustard for service

Directions:

1. Prepare dough according to package directions or allow store bought dough to come to room temperature.
2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
3. Divide the dough in to four pieces. Divide each of the four pieces into 8 pieces. Divide each sausage link into 4 pieces. You should have 32 pieces of sausage links and dough.
4. Stretch the dough out to cover most of the sausage. When dough surrounds the sausage brush with egg wash and seal.
5. Place on a line sheet pan and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes until dough is browned. Brush with olive oil or butter and serve with grainy mustard and chunks of cheddar.
