    Dan-Amer #1's Note:

    After having lived in Chicago for over 25 years, I crave Italian sausage and of course it is not available in Denmark, so I have adapted this recipe from one I found on This is excellent to use on deep dish Chicago style pizzas and it also freezes well.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 3



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Blend together all of the ingredients with the exception of the ground pork until they are thoroughly and uniformly mixed.
    2. 2
      With your clean hands blend the mixture of seasonings into the ground pork until it is well and uniformly blended inches
    3. 3
      Place the sausage in the refrigerator overnight in a covered container so that the flavors can blend before use.
    4. 4
      When I make I usually use 1/3 of it rather quickly on a deep dish pizza and freeze the rest for later use.

      I made this with ground beef, fresh garlic, and I did reduce the salt. It had exactly the flavor I was looking for! So delicious, thanks for posting!

      Made this recipe spur of the moment, so was missing a couple of the seasonings. I thought the flavor created by the combination of spices was really good. (I only used about 2 tsp paprika). The salt, though was way too much! I like salty food, but I don't usually measure it when I cook. 1 1/2 tsp seemed like a lot, but since I don't usually measure on meat, I went with it. I felt it was so salty that you could almost feel the salt crunch. That said, I will probably try this recipe again with much less salt because I did like the flavor I could get until the salt took over.

      Thank you for this recipe!!! I haven't eaten sausage in a long time because it's filled with so much fat and calories, but I used lean ground turkey to make this and it tasted just like regular Italian sausage. I'm from Chicago, so the fact that this is Chicago-style sausage makes the recipe even better. I'll be making this a lot :)
