Deep Dish Pizza with Sausage

Ingredients

4 ounces Italian sausage, halved lengthwise
olive oil for brushing pan
cornmeal for dusting pan
1 pound prepared pizza dough, room temperature (see recipe)
¾ cup prepared pizza sauce, strained
6 ounces mozzarella, shredded
1-1/2 tablespoons sliced fresh basil


Instructions

preheat with grill 2
Preheat the Cuisinart® Convection Microwave Oven with Grill by selecting the second Grill combination (G-2) for 8 to 10 minutes. Place grill rack in oven and place the sausages directly on the rack in the upper rack position. Place a microwave safe pie plate directly on the turntable to collect any drippings. Select the second Grill Combination (G-2) for 8 minutes to grill the sausages. Remove and reserve. Slice sausages once cool to touch.
While sausages are grilling, brush a 10” round cake pan with olive oil and lightly sprinkle with cornmeal. Roll the dough and stretch to fit the pan, pressing down center of dough slightly to create a thick band of crust. Brush the dough with olive oil.
Preheat oven to 400°F on the convection setting. Place pan on the grill rack in the lower rack position and place in oven. Bake for 15 minutes.
Add sauce to par-baked dough, top with mozzarella, sausage and basil. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes until cheese is melted and golden.
Serve immediately.
