Sweet Pepper and Sausage Pizza

Sweet Pepper and Sausage Pizza 
Round two of pizza, Slow Jams style!   

1 lb raw pizza dough (available at your local grocery store or favorite pizza place)
1/2 Jar Sweet Pepper Slow Jams
1/2 Pound Sausage, cooked and chopped into bite size pieces (we used Corridor Sausage Co. Spicy Italian Sausage). 
1/2 Cup Ricotta Cheese 
4 cloves garlic, chopped 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  You may use a pizza stone or baking pan, but be sure to grease the baking pan if that is what you are using.  
Brown the sausage in a medium sauté pan.  Remove cooked sausage and sauté chopped garlic for 2 minutes on medium heat.  
In a separate mixing bowl, stir together ricotta and garlic.  Salt and pepper to taste. 
Spread pizza dough onto baking pan as uniformly as possible.  Note: Pizza dough can be rather unruly, so you may not get a perfect circular shape.  We like all shapes and sizes and think it’s more fun that way - just try to create a uniformly thick pizza canvas so everything cooks evenly. 
Spread 1/4 cup of Sweet Pepper Slow Jams on the pizza dough, leaving 1/4-1/2 inches of dough around the edge. Spread the ricotta mixture evenly on top of the jam.  Sprinkle sausage on top of the ricotta. Take remaining 1/4 cup of Sweet Pepper Slow Jams and dollop liberally over the pizza.  

Bake pizza for 15-20 minutes until the crust is nice and golden brown. Let finished pizza sit for 5 minutes before slicing.
