FENNEL SAUSAGE

The true masterpiece flavour behind this awesome creation. Ridiculously easy to make you wouldn’t believe it. For this recipe we’re just using ground pork since that’s typically the main ingredient in sausage meat. From there it gets seasoned with lots of fennel seed, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and some red wine to help bind it all together and give it a nice colour. Cover it and let it rest to give the ingredients time to work their way into the pork and become a sausage blend.

HOW TO COOK IT

Since the oven will be at such a high temperature anyway and the sausage dolloped in such small pieces it will take the same amount of time to cook as the pizza dough. This sausage recipe does make a lot and more than what’s needed to fill a pizza so there will be leftovers. What to do with those leftovers? swap it for regular sausage or ground beef, make pasta with it, eggs, casseroles- you name it.

  • 350-400g ground pork
  • 2 tbsp fennel seed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  • fennel sausage: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well using your hands. Cover and let rest refrigerated for at least 20 minutes to allow the flavours to develop and mix together.
  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
  • Dust a sheet pan with some cornmeal or semolina to avoid the dough from sticking. Stretch out or roll your pizza dough thinly to fit the sheet pan.
  • Spread the crushed tomatoes across the dough to create a thin sauce. Next, spread the shredded mozzarella, then layer the fennel sausage, use a small spoon to form dollops and layer it across the pizza, finish with a few Calabrian chiles and bake for 10 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted. Serve with fresh basil and enjoy!
