Author Notes

Picture this: a cheesy pizza with all your favorite toppings—in sandwich form. Flavorful, flour-dusted Sara Lee Artesano Sausage Rolls are piled high with sauteed vegetables—thinly sliced bell peppers, mushrooms, artichokes, and cauliflower—then topped with marinara sauce and melty mozzarella. Just like with pizza, the way you like it best is the right way to make it. You can easily customize the toppings to match your favorite flavor combos; try adding thinly sliced kale, sliced Brussels sprouts, onions, chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, olives, or any of your favorite ingredients. —Posie (Harwood) Brien

What You'll Need
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cauliflower, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 (12-ounce) can or jar marinated artichoke hearts, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 Sara Lee Artesano Sausage Rolls
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce, jarred or homemade
  • 3 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds to a minute until garlic is just beginning to brown and smells fragrant.
  3. Add the bell peppers, mushrooms, and cauliflower. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften and brown, about 15 minutes. If you notice they’re starting to brown too quickly, turn the heat down to medium.
  4. Season with the salt and pepper, then add the artichoke hearts, oregano, and thyme. Cook for about 3 more minutes or until heated through, then remove from the heat.
  5. While the veggies cook, split the rolls without fully separating the top and bottom and place them on a baking sheet split-side up. Brush lightly with olive oil and bake until lightly toasted, about 5 minutes, but keep a close eye on them so they don’t get too brown. Remove from the oven, but leave the oven on.
  6. Divide the vegetable mixture evenly among the buns. Top with a generous amount of marinara sauce, then divide the cheese among each sandwich. Return to the oven and bake for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melty. Serve hot.
