A whole-wheat crust makes this pizza a healthier choice, along with lots of garlic, fresh tomatoes, and chicken sausage, which contains less fat and cholesterol than the greasy pork links that pizza parlors typically use. If you have a pizza stone, preheat it for at least 20 minutes. 

  1. Preheat oven to 500˚. Place baking sheet in oven for 10 minutes.
  2. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook sausage until crumbly; blot with a paper towel to absorb any excess grease. In a small bowl, blend oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Spread half of mixture over crust. Arrange tomato slices over oil mixture. Scatter cooked sausage over tomatoes; top with olives. Drizzle remaining half of oil-garlic mixture over pizza and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Remove baking sheet from oven, quickly dust with cornmeal, and top with pizza. Bake for 10 minutes. Scatter cheese over pizza and bake 3-5 minutes more, or until crust edges are golden and cheese is bubbly. Let pizza cool slightly before sprinkling with basil. Cut into slices and serve.
