Ever made your own sausage? It's not difficult at all, you know exactly what's going into it, and IT'S DELICIOUS!

Yields8 Servings
Prep Time20 minsCook Time7 minsTotal Time27 mins

 2 lbs pork shoulder
 2 lbs chicken thighs
 1 tbsp salt
 1 tsp black pepper
 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
 ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
 6 cloves garlic, minced
 2 tsp onion powder
 ½ tbsp dried basil
 ½ tbsp dried oregano
 ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
 ½ tsp dried sage
 ½ tsp sweet paprika

1

Freeze your ingredients for an hour (just to get them really cold) and refrigerate your grinding parts (sounds crazy but it makes a big difference with the grinding). Cut the pork and chicken into 1-inch cubes.

2

Place all of the ingredients into a large bowl and stir to combine. Refrigerate this mixture while you set up your meat grinder.

3

Using a meat grinder, coarsely grind the mixture. Send the mixture through the grinder slowly, so that you do not create a jam.

4

After sending all of the sausage mixture through the grinder once, grind it using the coarse grind plate a second time.

5

You can shape the mixture into sausage patties at this point, if you would like. I'm not doing the whole casing thing at this point - just patties which then I break off pieces for the pizza sausage bites.

6

I like to pre-cook the sausage a bit before putting it on the pizza. Heat 4 – 5 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan, and fry the sausages over a medium heat until they are light golden on all sides. This will take about 7 mins. They will cook all the way through when you cook your pizza.
