Sausage and Swiss Chard Pizza

Crispy swiss chard, perfectly salty sausage, and rich ricotta make this pizza one of our new favorites! It has a perfect balance of flavors and textures, plus as an added bonus you're sneaking your daily greens in...what's not to love! 


  • 3/4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1lb. hot Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1bunch Swiss chard, ribs and stems sliced into 1-inch pieces, leaves torn
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound prepared pizza dough, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary leaves
  • 1 cup grated Fontina cheese
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1/4 cup Pasta Jay's Classic Marinara

How To Make

STEP 1: Preheat oven to 450°F.

STEP 2: Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and break into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Let cook until browned, about 4 minutes. Add chard stems; cook, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Transfer sausage and chard stems to a medium bowl with a slotted spoon.

STEP 3: Let skillet and drippings cool until just warm, then add chard leaves, turning to coat. Season with salt and pepper; transfer to bowl with sausage mixture.

STEP 4: Stretch dough into a large oval on baking sheet or pizza stone, coat with Pasta Jay's Classic Marinara; season with salt and pepper. Top with half of Parmesan and rosemary, followed by sausage mixture, Fontina, ricotta, then remaining Parmesan and rosemary.

STEP 5: Bake pizza, rotating sheet halfway through, until crust is golden brown and crisp, 18–22 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
