This pizza is a combination of ideas and tricks. The initial inspiration is from Nancy Silverton’s Mozza cookbook. I made her delicious pizza with sausage, scallions and whipped cream (yes, whipped cream. It melts and creates a nice creamy sauce). The other inspiration is the classic pasta dish with sausage and broccoli rabe. Such a lovely combination. Earlier in the week, I made Ina Garten’s sausage stuffed mushrooms. I cut those in quarters, put them on the pizza with whipped cream, fontina, scallions and blanched broccoli rabe.
The great thing about pizza, pasta and risotto, is that you may easily take what you have on hand in the refrigerator and pantry and make something wonderful.
