dining in: ciabatta* pizza with turkey italian* sausage, clams & shrooms, cooking light may 1999

One of my absolute faves!  It may sound "different", but it is one of the most tastiest and easiest dishes to create for a fun, relaxed, comfy food kinda night.  I have to admit I stayed at the dining table for about 4 hours this night; listening to a mix of 80's on Spotify, mostly Genesis, and feeding the girls cat nip...very entertaining!
Ciabatta* Pizza with Turkey Italian* Sausage, Clams & Shrooms
1 (4 oz.) link sweet Italian turkey or chicken sausage
2 T flour
1 1/2 C sliced mushrooms
1/2 C skim or 1% low-fat milk
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/8 tsp. black pepper
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1 (6 ½ oz.) can chopped clams, undrained
3/4 C grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
1 loaf of Ciabatta, cut in half horizontally
2 T chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 400°.
Remove casing from sausage.  Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble.  Add flour, and cook 2 min., stirring frequently.  Add the mushrooms, milk, oregano, pepper, pepper flakes, and clams; bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until thick.  Remove from heat.  Stir in 1/2 C cheese.
Place bread halves on a baking sheet; spread clam mixture evenly over cut sides of bread.  Sprinkle with 1/4 C cheese and parsley.  Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cut each half into 3 or 4 pieces.
