Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Spicy Italian Sausage Grilled Pizzas

You know the 4th of July is coming up, right? How many of you are going to be grilling that day? If you are, why not think about grilling up some pizza to go along with the hamburgers and hotdogs? These are SO easy to do using Mama Mary's Gourmet Pizza Crusts™! I used the Thin & Crispy variety and I have to say, perfection on a plate! The crunchy crust the grill gave them was terrific! And this was SO easy! I cooked up some Italian sausage for ours, but depending on what ingredients you choose, you could get by with NO cooking at all. And if you want to get really creative, have a pizza bar and let everyone make their own!! Give them a try this coming holiday weekend!!! Simple and delicious!
