  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 18x12-inch sheet of heavy-duty foil; place on large cookie sheet. Spray foil with cooking spray; set aside.
  • 2
    Place pepper halves on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 3 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until crisp-tender. Remove from grill; cool. Cut into thin slices.
  • 3
    Unroll dough on sprayed foil. Starting at center, press out dough to form 13x9-inch rectangle. Brush top of dough with 1 teaspoon oil.
  • 4
    Invert foil, placing dough oil side down directly on grill rack; peel off foil and return to cookie sheet, sprayed side up. Cook uncovered 2 to 4 minutes or until bottom of dough is golden brown. (Watch carefully to prevent burning.) With wide metal pancake turner, turn crust over. Cook 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds longer or until bottom is set but not brown. Carefully remove crust from grill; place browned side up on foil on cookie sheet.
  • 5
    Top crust with pizza sauce, 1 cup of the cheese, the grilled pepper slices and sausage. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and the oregano.
  • 6
    Slide pizza from foil onto grill. Cover grill; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until bottom crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.

Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.

Don't want to grill? Make the pizza in the oven by following package directions that use a pre-bake time. You won't have a grilled pepper, so slice a fresh one and use it instead.

We like the Italian cheese blend, but reduced-fat mozzarella cheese could be used instead.

Have all toppings ready to go because the pizza cooks quickly. If the crust is cooking too fast, move the pizza to a cooler part of grill or reduce heat.
