Sausage, Onion and Pepper Pizza

My husband Todd loves this pizza!

Sausage, Onion and Pepper Pizza

1 1/2 cups vertically sliced onions
1 1/2 cups red, orange or yellow bell pepper strips
1-pound Italian sausage
1/8-1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 (14.5-ounce) can petit diced tomatoes, undrained
1 loaf French bread, cut in half horizontally
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 450.

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat.  Add sliced onion and bell peppers strips, and sautĂ© 6 minutes until tender.

Remove onion and bell peppers from pan and add sausage, cook until browned, stirring to crumble.  Drain off fat from sausage and add onion and bell pepper mixture back to the pan.  Add crushed red pepper flakes, and diced tomatoes, and cook 5 minutes or until mixture thickens.

Spread sausage mixture evenly over cut sides of bread, and sprinkle evenly with cheese.  Place bread halves on a baking sheet.  Bake at 450 for 5-10 minutes until cheese melts. 

*If I have a loaf of the Fabulous French bread on hand, I like to use it for this recipe.
*My sister Stephanie suggested dicing the peppers and onions to make it more kid friendly, but still get all of the flavor.
