Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient

2 pounds Hot or mild sausage
½ cup Olive oil
2 tablespoons Chopped garlic
½ teaspoon Crushed red flakes
2¼ cup Grated Romano cheese
2¼ cup Grated fontina cheese
\N \N Kosher salt; to taste
1 \N Recipe pizza crust; divided into six
\N \N ; pieces (recipe

11 ounces Lukewarm water
1 teaspoon Fresh yeast
1 tablespoon Molasses
2½ teaspoon Kosher salt
2½ tablespoon Olive oil
3½ cup All purpose flour
⅓ cup Whole wheat flour

PIZZA DOUGH

In a large pot of boiling water, blanch the broccoli rabe over high heat for about 4 minutes. Using tongs or a slotted spoon lift from the water and set aside to cool. When cool, chop coarsely.

Bring the water back to a boil and cook the sausage for about 15 minutes, until cooked through. Using tongs or a slotted spoon, remove the sausage from the water and immediately plunge in cold water to stop the cooking.

When cool, remove the meat from the casing and crumble. (You should have 6 cups of sausage.)

In a large saute pan, over medium high heat, heat the olive oil and cook the garlic for about 30 seconds, until browned. Add the broccoli rabe and red pepper flakes to the pan and season to taste with salt. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes, until very tender.

In a bowl, mix together the Romano and fontina cheeses.

Spread about ¾ cup of the Romano-fontina mixture over each pizza crust, top each with equal amounts of broccoli rabe and sausage and then slide them back to the edge of the hot section of the grill. Rotate them for every 3 to 4 minutes until the bottoms are evenly golden brown. Cut the pizzas and serve.

PIZZA DOUGH:

Mix the water, yeast, and molasses in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Let this stand for 12 minutes to activate the yeast (the water will foam slightly.)

Add the salt and oil to the bowl and mix well.

With mixer on low speed add the all purpose flour and the whole wheat flour to the bowl and mix until all the flour is absorbed and the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. Remove the dough from the bowl and cut the dough into 6 (5½ ounce) portions. Roll the portioned dough into balls and place on an oiled baking pan. Brush the ball lightly with olive oil and cover with plastic wrap.

If you are going to use the dough right away let the dough sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before using. You can store the dough after portioning for 1 day in the refrigerator, but you must let sit at room temperature for 1 hour before using.
