Sausage Ricotta Honey Hot Pizza

We LOVE pizza making nights at home 🙂 This Sausage Ricotta Honey Hot Pizza was our newest pizza recipe creation!

It’s got the perfect flavor trifecta… spicy, sweet, and savory!

You can bake them in the oven, or on your Traeger pellet grill to add a subtle, smoky kiss.

Stonefire Naan flatbreads make pizza night super simple, too!

The perfect crispy, yet slightly soft and fluffy crust 🙂

How to make Sausage Ricotta Honey Hot Pizza

I cooked a whole pound of Italian sausage, but for 2 pizzas you’ll only need half of the pound.

We simply saved it for another pizza making night.

First brush some olive oil and pizza sauce on each of the 2 naan flatbreads.

Then add a cup of mozzarella cheese to each.

And pile on that cooked sausage and dollops of ricotta cheese.

Season with kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes as well.

Next stop is either the oven or your Traeger pellet grill.

For the oven, place the flatbread pizzas on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

If you are using the pellet grill, the pizzas can go right on the grill grate at 375 degrees for the same cook time of 12 to 15 minutes.

Just remove once the cheese and nice and melty and the crust is crisped how you prefer.

For the hot honey I just mixed together some honey and my favorite hot sauce, I went with lots of hot sauce because I love my spice.
