In my quest to make a great breakfast sausage, I had a lot of fails. One of the fails was actually really good...as a pizza topping. It is a little bit of a spicy sausage with a good flavor. We use it to make homemade pizzas, but we buy the pre-made crust/sauce kit at Sams.

Today I made 2.5 lbs of sausage pizza topping (enough for 3 or 4 pizzas), 6 pounds of my knock-off Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage and 6 pounds of Jalapeno Herb pork sausage sticks. As I was by myself, this took a spell but it was worth it. Here are some of the sausage-for-pizza-topping pics. Recipe is at the bottom.

I used the fine plate for the pizza topping and breakfast sausage.
11 pounds went through the Kitchenaid grinder attachment in about 20 minutes

mixed and rested

Pizza topping on the left, breakfast sausage on the right. We eat it fast enough that I just use ziploc bags and don't bother with shrink-wrapping it.

Nice job and Bookmarked! I like Italian Fennel Sausage on an Italian Roll with Fried Peppers and Onions, or as a meat side with Pasta and Tomato Sauce. Call me crazy, but I am not crazy about Fennel Sausage on Pizza! The Pizza Sausage I have enjoyed the most were Porky and lightly seasoned, with what? I don't know. Your mix sounds like a good possibility for what I desire. Thanks...JJ

The best sausage I've ever had on pizza is Tony Gemignani's calabrese honey sausage, it's KILLER!!!!
I wish his recipe was a larger batch, I suck at up or downsizing recipes, I wish there was an app for that. LOL!!!.

forktender forktender - I have my sausage recipes in an Excel spreadsheet that allows me to upsize the recipe with a single keystroke. Send me a PM with your email and I can send it to you or upsize it to whatever batch size you desire and send that instead.

SmokinAl SmokinAl - I completely forgot. But the kit was great. Cooked the pizza on a stone at 450...made a crispy crust.

That would be awesome, thank you very much.
I have to dig out the book, then I will send you the recipe.
That would be a huge help.
Thanks again.

For some reason, when I try to send a p/m it says that I have to add 2 more digits to the name line.
Weird, I've sent hundreds of p/m's on this site the same way I tried to send you a message.
If you can, please try to message me, so I can send you the recipe in the reply.

Sorry for the troubles.
