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!

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
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar


Place pork sausage in a large frying pan and turn heat on to medium-high. Add spices, vinegar, and sugar and start stirring the sausage to break it up. 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.
