In my personal recipe book, I labeled this as "Pizza Thanksgiving Stuffing" because it tastes exactly like sausage pizza! (And I made it for Thanksgiving.) It's got the bread, like pizza crust, cheese, tomatoes like sauce and sausage. All the makings of a pizza! And that's exactly what it tasted like, a pizza casserole. Here are my tips:
Do not double the recipe. I did this because I was making for 13+ people, and didn't think one batch would be enough. Trust me. It is. Nearly everyone had some and some even had seconds. Some even took some home. There was more than enough. Probably because there were so many other dishes, everyone got filled up. I got a lot of rave reviews though, and one of the kids said they normally hated stuffing but liked mine.
I omitted the olives, because I thought it sounded weird, and didn't want to offend picky eaters, however in retrospect, olives, especially black ones, would probably have worked.
Sun dried tomatoes are delicious and a must, as are fresh basil.
I used water, since I didn't have wine, but I am sure wine would be good too.
Definitely do the shredded parmesan, because it melts much better than the grated kind.
I could not find focaccia bread in my grocery store, so I had to sub with an everything loaf and a cheese focaccia bread. Were still phenomenal and I would highly recommend the everything loaf!
I used 2 diff kinds of sausage and both were good!
All in all, really good if you like pizza and especially for kids!
