All of Outside Table's products are a staple in my everyday cooking. I love that they're so fresh tasting. They're certified organic and free of artificial ingredients and flavors.
Pizza Thyme is that herbaceous fresh pop that makes your pizza crust shine. It adds a little peppery heat. The Pizza Night sauce gives that flavorful tomato base that is both tangy and savory.
With a homemade dough baked in a cast iron skillet for that crispy on the outside and tender inside crust, it doesn't take much to make this pizza shine. Use your favorite combination of Dairy Free cheeses for this. I used a Dairy Free mozzarella and parmesan mix. You can also use sweet Italian sausage or spicy Italian sausage. Feel free to substitute with turkey sausage as well.
