Buffalo sausage flatbread pizza is Colorado Proud

Always eat Colorado! Every month the Colorado Department of Agriculture releases a new Colorado Proud recipe by chef Jason Morse, now the executive chef of the Douglas County School District.

The March offering sounds like a perfect snack for gourmands watching March Madness games. It's Buffalo Sausage Flatbread Pizza, featuring the meat of the Great American Bison, which is available at grocery and specialty stores around the state, as well as jalapeno jelly. Get out that jar your Aunt Elly gave you last Christmas and start cooking.

Here's the recipe:
