Italian sausage pizza on the go!!!

Ok so not the prettiest food you've ever eaten but
very practical to take anywhere.

Last night we had pizzas and they were so good that my Husband mentioned that it was so good, he didn't mind having more tonight.
Here is the one I made for the boys:

For the pizza:
It was a simple pizza with bacon, Italian sausages, cheese, homemade tomatoe sauce and the Italian Sausages or as we cal them at home: the "Magic Sausages" because we always make them last for more than one meal.

To make this pizza, I used my usual recipe:

For the tomato sauce, in a saucepan mix 2 cans of tomatoes in juice, add a good Tablespoon or 2 of honey, a teaspoon of salt and some dried oregano and leave it to reduce on low to medium heat, stirring regularly so the sauce doesn't catch at the bottom of the pan. Once thick and reduced, leave it aside to cool.

Blind bake the dough at 200 Degree C for about 15 minutes or until the dough feels dry, don't let the dough turn bgolden because it will cook again later with the topping and might get overcooked.

Once ready, take it out of the oven and spread the tomato sauce, add your topping and return to the oven for another 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is nicely melted.

For the rolls:
Roll the dough into a rectangle about 15 cms long and the width of the sausage you are using, even a llittle wider.

Spread the prepared tomato sauce. Slice some cheese and place on top of the sauce. Place the sausage over the cheese and roll the dough as you would roll a spring roll. Roll the dough around the sausage, tuck the sides in and keep rolling until the end of the dough.

Bake at 200 Degree C for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

I have found this might be a good snack to take to work or on a picnic. It is easy to transport, will not spill and easy to eat anywhere even if you don't have any cuttlery.

Happy Baking everyone :)
