Italian Sausage, Pepper and Onion Roll Up

We did an open house brunch thing here at my house this weekend. I did a tray (9x13) of Sausage, Pepper, and Onions with a tray of Baked Ziti and then a crock pot full of meatballs and sauce. Finishing with a tray of salad, with rolls. Rolls you could make the sausage and peppers as a sandwich and even the meatballs as a sandwich. This was really an affordable meal and I served about 30 people. I made two trays of each entree and the only leftover I had was a half tray of sausage and peppers.

The Sausage and Peppers were just a simple recipe. I bake the sausage until it is done and then cut into bite size slices. In a large saute pan I took 3 green peppers, 3 onions all julienned sliced and saute them down with a bit of garlic and 1 can of diced tomatoes and 1 can of tomato sauce. Slip the sausage into the softened down peppers and onion mixture and let simmer just a little. At this point you can transfer to a crock pot and keep warm.

As I wrote above we had Sausage and Peppers left. I had about 4 cups left. I took 2 cups and put into a freezer container to use again later. The other 2 cups I made our dinner.

Italian Sausage, Pepper and Onion Roll Up


2 cups of Italian sausage and peppers and onion (leftover or can be made just for this occasion)

1 Pizza crust dough

1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese


1) Spread out dough onto a pam sprayed piece of foil or parchment paper.

2) Put sausage, pepper and onion mixture all down the middle saving an half inch from sides.

3) Put mozzarella cheese on top.

4) Roll from bottom, to across top of mixture, keep dough on paper and pick up paper and bring across the top, then release dough from paper, which leaves it laying on top (the dough) then flip entire thing over, pulling with the paper, then shape and then peel paper away, it will leave the entire thing on the top end. You can leave there or put on another sprayed sheet pan.
Poke a few small holes, to vent while it cooks.

5) Slightly sprinkle with olive oil and Parmesan and a little garlic salt.

6) Pop in oven for about 35 minutes until all brown. at 400.

7) Please let cool a few minutes, before cutting. It will hold together better and you won't scald your mouth.

I love sharing these recipes, because they make what you have leftover, look brand new. That in turn feeds your family and saves you money. If you ever wanna share any ideas, please always feel free to holler my way.

Until then remember life is " really that simple" enjoy it and make it your own.
