Make Your Own Fresh Italian Sausage!

It’s really easy to make your own bulk Italian sausage at home! All you need is this recipe that some of you will recognize from page 2 of the RDD Thin Crust Pizza recipe. You can use it for deep dish or thin crust pizza, or shape it into patties or links for any number of recipes!

1 lb lean ground Pork

1/2 tsp Salt

2 tsp of Fennel seed, lightly crushed

1 tsp granulated Garlic (or 4 cloves of fresh garlic, crushed/minced)

1 tsp Black Pepper

1 tsp Sugar (optional, but recommended)

1/2 tsp Oregano (optional)
You can also add other herbs, like Marjoram, Parsley, and Basil.
1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

Combine salt and spices.

Mix with ground pork until well combined.

Wrap and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.

If you’ve been following the Real Deep Dish page on Facebook, you’ve probably seen these.

My first Chicago Cubs themed Deep Dish Pizza was made on October 15, 2016.
This was Game 1 of the NLCS. I’m not saying that a deep dish Cubs pizza made Miguel Montero hit a grand slam home run followed by a Dexter Fowler homer but…

YOU CAN’T PROVE THAT IT DIDN’T!!!

I would like to apologize for not baking another deep dish Cubs pizza until October 30th (Game 5).
Had I realized the power of these pies sooner, I would have baked one every night.




This pizza was my first one ever made with BLUE PIZZA DOUGH.

Game 6 involved the reheating and consumption of slices leftover from the Game 5 pizza.
This was confirmed to be effective when paired with Green River soda, a Chicago original!

I wanted the Game 7 pizza to be special, so I made blue AND red pizza dough for this one.  Some of the blue dough was used to decorate the italian sausage Cubby Bear on top of the pizza. The red part of the crust covers the bottom of the pizza (visible on the slice pictured below).
This pizza was clearly possessed by the ghost of a inebriated broadcaster, as the game created several potential cardiac events with incredible plays, ridiculous errors & an extra inning rain delay, before ending an incredibly long championship drought.
