The Mediterranean is famous for a lot of reasons. One of them is the general philosophy of loving life (in a paradise-like that, who wouldn’t?). That means taking it slow. Enjoying your surroundings. Appreciating great food. Cooper® Sharp may be born in the Northeast, but we do share a love of food that would be right at home in the Mediterranean. Which makes this Cooper® Cheese Mediterranean Grilled Pizza a match made in, well, paradise.

INGREDIENTS

1 box pizza dough mix or ready-made refrigerated pizza dough
flour
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup pizza sauce
1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
13 slices turkey pepperoni*
4 turkey breakfast sausages*
2 cups Cooper® Sharp White cheese, shredded or sliced then torn into pieces
1/4 cup Kalamata olives, sliced
1/4 cup yellow banana pepper rings
feta cheese, to taste

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 425°F.

In a medium bowl, mix pizza dough according to package directions. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes.

In a small frying pan, prepare sausages according to package directions. Cut into small pieces and set aside.

Spray a flat cookie sheet or pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray (you can also use an oven/grill-safe pizza pan). On a floured cutting board or prep surface, press or roll out dough with hands/rolling pin (using additional flour on hands/rolling pin to prevent sticking), until crust is at your desired thickness.

Place dough on the cookie sheet/pizza pan and bake in the oven about 3 minutes, or until the crust is no longer doughy (do not over-bake).

Remove crust from the oven and brush lightly with olive oil. Spread crust with pizza sauce. Top with onion, pepperoni, and sausages. Sprinkle evenly with Cooper® cheese. Distribute the olive slices and pepper rings. Sprinkle with feta cheese.

On a pre-heated grill, either a) if using a cookie sheet, slide the pizza directly to the rack, or b) if using a grilling pan, place pan directly on the grill. Cook covered until pizza crust is browned and cheese is melted.

Remove from the grill, slice, and serve!
