Hi everyone! This is Kristin from Dizzy Busy and Hungry and I am happy to be back at Memories by the Mile for my monthly post. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that your 2014 has started off well! My husband and I packed up our two boys, and all the Christmas gifts, and drove 6 hours to visit my parents for Christmas. It was a little stressful getting ready to go, but once we arrived we had such a nice visit! Now the kids are back in school and we are all back in the swing of things!

This month I am sharing with you my recipe for Cashew Sausage Basil Pizza. I love to experiment with different pizza toppings to get interesting flavor combinations. This combination is great because the cashews add a little crunch and a smooth buttery flavor, the sausage adds a little zing, and the basil rounds it all out. You can serve this for an easy weeknight dinner, or even cut it into smaller pieces and make it an appetizer for a Super Bowl party!

Cashew Sausage Basil Pizza


14 ounces whole wheat pizza dough (I used store-bought)


1/3 cup pizza sauce

1 cup mozzarella

1/2 cup shredded cheddar

½ cup crumbled, cooked sausage (you can use any kind, I used Morningstar Farms veggie sausage)

½ cup roasted cashews

10-15 small basil leaves (or more, if you like a lot of basil)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees Celsius).

Roll out dough to about 16 inches in diameter. Use a little flour to keep it from sticking.

Place the pizza on a pizza baking sheet or pizza stone.

Spoon the sauce over the dough and distribute evenly.

Top with mozzarella and shredded cheddar.

Distribute sausage, cashews, and basil leaves.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

    Hi. Only needed to inquire a simple problem. I am
    assembling my own web site and also would choose
    to understand wherever you got your style? Had been that free of charge?
    Or even has been it paid out? Could not appear
    to uncover whatever just like this, thus with luck
    , it is possible to well then, i’ll recognize. Appreciate it.
    PS, our sorry. English seriously isn’t my personal primary dialect.

      i saw a bread car (someone parked a van on the steert side and sell bread) in japan and i thought of you. maybe you can sell bread in a bread car too, just like the way icecream cars sell icecream.
