Who loves a good sausage pizza?

Making your own homemade pizza sausage at home is very affordable. I found a pound of breakfast sausage on sale for $1.99. I combined it with spices I had stocked in my kitchen and made it into delicious homemade sausage for pizza (or breakfast). This yielded enough for several pizzas (7 or 8).

I usually make a big batch and freeze the sausage in small portions so they’re ready to take out and use. Dinner prep couldn’t be easier!

This Sausage Can Also Be Used:

  • Mixed into scrambled eggs
  • On breakfast pizza
  • On top of a breakfast sandwich
  • Made into breakfast sausage patties (to make: form into patties and bake instead of fry)

Homemade Pizza Sausage

Yield: 2 cups

Total Time: 10 minutes

Making your own pizza sausage at home is very easy. You just need a few spices and ground pork. This freezes well, so make a big batch. Store in small bags in the freezer and take them out as you need them.


  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole fennel seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar


Place pork sausage in a large frying pan and turn heat on to medium-high. Add spices and start stirring the sausage to break it up. Try to break up any large pieces. Fry until sausage is fully cooked, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove sausage from pan and place on a plate covered with paper towels. Allow sausage to cool. Use immediately or freeze for future use.
