Use this cooked spicy sausage on your pizzas! You can cook it up and freeze it in batches to use later, too. Adapted from Cooking Light.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and stir well.
  2. Over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet, brown the sausage, stirring to crumble into pieces of the desired size (I like big-ish chunks rather than "gravel"), about 7 to 9 minutes.
  3. Drain well.
  4. Use on your pizza.
  5. Makes 5 cups (5 servings of 1 cup each, for a large pizza) of pizza sausage – you can put it into Ziplock bags and freeze them for later use, if you like.

Very good recipe. I only had 1 lb. of sausage so I cut the ingredients in half and skipped the fennel seed. Used it on pizza and tasted great!

GREAT. I could't get ground turkey or ground pork, but I tried it with lean ground beef. I also didn't have any fennel, but have since gotten some, so am looking forward to tryng it again. We eat a lot of pizza and this is completely addicting!!

This is excellent, very flavorful! I did not have any ground turkey so I used only lean ground pork and I had no fennel seeds either. For the wine I used a peppery Shiraz and the flavor is excellent! Thank you!
