For the dough:

Store bought Pizza dough (you can make your own if you are so inclined)

For the filling:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 pound (450 grams) Circle B Ranch Sweet Italian Sausage
  • 1/2 cup of Provolone cheese grated
  • A few tablespoons of Grated Romano Cheese


  • prepare  onions and sausage. In a large skillet on medium heat, sauté the onions in olive oil until golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  • In the same skillet, brown the sausage until no longer pink. Transfer to a bowl and let cool.
  • Preheat oven to 400F and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Spread out the pizza dough to a 24’x 16′ rectangle
  • Evenly spread out the onions on the dough, followed by the sausage. Top with Provolone and grated Romano Cheese
  • Roll the dough in a jelly roll fashion beginning with the long end closest to you. Once rolled,  cut off excess loose dough on each end and shape into a small bun.
  • Transfer the rolled dough on the parchment covered baking sheet. Connect both ends to form a circle. Cut a few slits on the top and let rest, covered, for 1 hour.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce oven to 350F and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden. Let cool about 15 minutes before cutting into wedges.
