Ingredients
  

For the Dijon Cream Sauce:

  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt

For the Pizza:

  • 1 precooked thin crust pizza crust
  • 1/4 lb hot sausage cooked and crumbled, fat drained (see Notes)
  • 1/4 cup white onion thinly sliced
  • 4 oz sliced white button mushrooms
  • scant 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/4 cupĀ  Cape Cod Select Premium Cranberries rough chop
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded Havarti cheese
  • 1 jalapeno very thinly sliced
  • fresh cracked pepper

Instructions
 

  • In a medium, nonstick skillet, heat the cream. Once at a simmer, reduce heat and cook gently, stirring regularly, until reduced by half. Add the Dijon and salt and set aside.
  • Heat the oven to 450F with the pizza stone in the oven.
  • Remove the preheated stone from the oven. Assemble the pizza: crust, Dijon Cream Sauce, sausage, onion, mushrooms, almonds, cranberries, cheeses, jalapeno, and pepper. Bake at 450F for 10 minutes. Reduced heat to 400F and bake until all bubbly and golden. Yields: 3 servings.

Notes

This pizza, with the hot sausage and a fresh jalapeno from my garden, was spicy. But it was good spicy, not bad spicy. So, if you like some spice, make the recipe as written. If you are either weak-kneed and spice-averse or if you have kids to feed, use regular sausage.
