Greek Lamb Sausage Pizza

Recipe By Mary Johnston, Savory Franchising Team

Recipe By Mary Johnston, Savory Franchising Team

The components of this Greek-inspired pizza can easily be made ahead, and using a store-bought pizza crust cuts down on overall prep and bake time. The sausage can be made on its own to add flavor to breakfast dishes or other Greek-inspired meals. And the sauce also makes a great dip for veggies or pita chips.

Serving Suggestions

The sausage can be made into patties and frozen for use in other dishes. The sauce makes a great dip for veggies or pita chips.

Recipe Notes

*The sausage works with regular ground pork, but pork shoulder is more flavorful; ask your butcher to grind it for you. To roast garlic, slice off top of head to expose cloves, sprinkle with 1 tsp. olive oil, wrap tightly in foil and roast in a 400-degree oven until soft, 30 to 40 min. When head is cool enough to handle, roasted cloves should squeeze right out.

Ingredients

For sausage:

12 oz. ground lamb

¾ lbs. course ground pork shoulder*

1 small white onion, diced

½ cups dried bread crumbs





2 Tbsp. olive oil

For sauce:

1 head garlic, roasted*

⅓ cups plain Greek yogurt

2 Tbsp. mayonnaise

¼ cups grated Parmesan cheese

¼ cups crumbled feta cheese


For pizza & toppings:

1 large pre-cooked pizza or flatbread crust

2 tsp. olive oil


1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

½ red onion, thinly sliced

½ cups pitted, halved Kalamata black olives

¼ cups crumbled feta cheese

¼ cups packed fresh torn basil leaves
