About this Recipe

Salsiccia (sahl/SEE/tchah). Say it out loud. Seriously, say it! Salsiccia is Italian for “sausage”--its etymology comes from Latin for “seasoned with salt.” Etymology aside, this pizza is pure deliciousness. The easiest part of the recipe is the straightforward prep. The hardest part is giving that last slice to someone you love. Very. Much.


  • 2 par-baked pizza crusts (10-11 inches round)
  • 3 oz sliced roasted red bell peppers
  • ½ cup San Marzano tomato puree
  • ½ lb fresh mozzarella
  • ¼ lb nitrate-free sweet Italian sausage
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

  1. step

    Prep pizza crust

    • You can bake only 1 pizza at a time. If you are preparing 2, assemble both (assemble second pizza on a cutting board); then bake one after the other, letting metal tray and Brava cool for 10 minutes in between. If you are baking only 1 pizza, oil just 1 crust and prepare half of the ingredients.
    • Place 1 pizza crust on Brava metal tray. Using pastry brush or your hands, evenly spread 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil over entire crust.
    • Season crust with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. step

    Assemble pizza

    • Drain liquid from roasted red bell peppers.
    • Pour half of tomato puree in middle of crust. Using back of spoon or ladle, spread puree evenly, leaving ½ inch uncovered around edges.
    • Arrange half of mozzarella (about 7 slices) and half of peppers on top.
    • Using your fingers, pinch small chunks of sausage (about the size of a quarter) and evenly distribute on pizza. Use half of sausage per pizza.

  3. step

    Slide metal tray into bottom shelf

    • Select “Sweet Italian Sausage Pizza” on your Brava touchscreen and follow instructions.

  4. step


    • When your food is done, transfer pizza to cutting board. If you want to bake a second pizza, let metal tray and Brava cool for about 10 minutes before proceeding.
    • Sprinkle baked pizza with half of Parmigiano-Reggiano and drizzle with 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil.
    • Cut pizza into slices.
