Simple, easy pizza with the fall flavors of kielbasa, apples, cheddar.


  • All-purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1 pound pizza dough (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • pretzel salt or coarse salt or kosher salt for sprinkling
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar, grated
  • 10 ounces kielbasa, cut on the bias into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 granny smith apple, cored and cut into thin wedges
  • 1/2 small red onion, cut into 1/4-inch wedges
  • 1/4 cup fresh sage leaves
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • , for drizzling


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees with the oven rack in the lower-third of oven (*If using a pre-packaged pizza dough, feel free to follow temperature on package). On a parchment lined baking sheet lightly dusted with flour, stretch dough into a 10×15-inch rectangle, with a 1-inch border of thicker dough. Brush entire surface inside border evenly with mustard. Brush border with egg, then sprinkle generously with salt. Sprinkle cheese over mustard. Scatter kielbasa, apple, onion, and sage evenly over cheese, then drizzle with oil.
  2. Bake until crust is deep golden brown and center is set, about 20 minute; tent with foil if edges brown too quickly. Serve hot.


  • For a quick pizza crust, check your local grocer or even pizzeria for fresh dough. You may also find it in the freezer section of some grocery stores. If all else fails, and you don’t want to make your own, grab a tube of pre-made dough, like Pillsbury (that’s actually what I did!)
