The all time favourite of meat lovers everywhere is, funnily enough, the Meatlovers pizza. If you’ve come across a Meatlovers without sausage or minced meat at the very least, then you will know the disappointment that comes along with it. The ideal Meatlovers features sausage, pepperoni, ham, bacon, and maybe chicken or some seafood if you’re feeling adventurous. And no, it’s not cheating if you decide to add a vegetable or two to it, or even – shock horror – the pineapple.
Sausage and potato
One of the more common gourmet delights on our list comes in the form of the sausage and potato pizza. This is one of those pizzas where you’ll find the thinly sliced potato and it’s imperative to get the right variety to make sure the texture of your pizza is just right. A good variety for this pizza is the red potato. You may also choose to add eggplant to this pizza. Pair it with rosemary, and if you’re feeling fancy Fontina cheese instead of the good old mozzarella.
Caramelized onion and sausage
There are onions and then there are caramelised onions. Make no mistake, each is equally delicious, but each very different in flavour and texture. Whereas regular onions are a bit spicy and crunchy, caramelised onions are gooey, sticky and sweet… mmmm… we’re drooling just thinking about them! Caramelised onion makes the perfect pairing for sausage on a pizza, and is often combined with basil for that delicious flavour hit. Make sure that onions are caramelised to perfection before adding to the pizza and experiment with different types of sausage.
Sausage, Brussel sprouts and rosemary
Brussel sprouts on a pizza? What the? Yes, that’s right, if you want to do gourmet properly, then it’s time to bust out the Brussel sprout. Make sure to cook Brussel sprouts so they are soft, rather than still crunchy, and they can be cooked with bacon or bacon fat for extra deliciousness. Chop up your Brussel sprouts and place around pizza with pieces of sausage, and then sprinkle with rosemary for that delicious, hearty oven taste.
Sausage and Kale chips pizza
Why not take a leaf out of the pages of the health conscious – literally – and top your pizza with crunchy kale chips? Kale makes a delicious topping alongside sausage. All you need on this pizza is our sausage pieces and your kale along with two sorts of cheese – both mozzarella and parmesan. Parmesan loves kale, which is why we add it to this particular pizza.
Goats cheese and sausage pizza
While goats cheese isn’t for the faint of heart, it is delicious, creamy, robust, and bursting with flavour. What type of sausage works best with goat’s cheese? That’s the pork sausage. You might like to complete this pizza with some fine slices of pear to cut through the rich flavour or add some rocket on top.
