Ingredients & Cooking


  • 1 recipe Mexican-Style Beef Sausage
  • 4 eggs, lighly beaten
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 package (11 ounces) refrigerated thin-crust pizza dough


  1. Prepare Mexican-Style Beef Sausage.  Stir eggs, cream cheese and Mexican cheese blend into sausage.  Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until eggs are cooked and cheeses have melted.  Remove from heat and stir in spinach.  

    Mexican-Style Beef Sausage:  Combine 1 pound Ground Beef (93% or leaner), 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, 1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves, 1-1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika, 1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder in large mixing bowl mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.  Add sausage mixture; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.
  2. Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Meanwhile, roll out pizza dough according to package directions; spread sausage mixture evenly over dough.  Starting on long side, roll up dough into a log.  Place on baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown.  Cut into 6 pieces.
