Pizano's Sausage Crust Pizza

About twice a year, my day job treats our office to pizza from Pizano's! Today was our lucky day! The past few times, I had a roast beef sandwich as my pizza alternative, but ordering this time around would be a little more difficult. My boss's wife and I were brainstorming what I could order and then I decided I would just call and see what they had that was gluten and lactose free. I had my answer: a sausage crust pizza. (I was unable to find this on their website.)

There was only one review on yelp that mentioned this specialty pizza and it was overwhelmingly negative. I heard of this sausage crust phenomenon before - it seems to be a Chicago thing since deep dish pizza is our speciality. I decided to go for this exciting pizza option! Normally, I have cheese and sausage pizza, but when my crust is sausage, I don't think my stomach would be able to handle the explosion of meat. I decided for a cheese-less pizza with green peppers (for balance.)
Here it is! All in its greasy glory!!

And where it is after I worked my magic and added some goat cheese that I brought from home. Almost everyone at work was intrigued by my pizza and a few people asked if they could have a slice. With only four slices of my personal pizza, I was cutting slivers of the sausage crust for people so they could try it. Everyone loved it! It overall was a pretty good pizza. It was not bursting with flavor - it was just a traditional tasting pizza that just so happened to be made with a sausage crust. This is something I will be ordering again in the future!
