Regular readers know that I’m obsessed with the pizza sausage from Hollywood Markets, a local chain of grocery stores in Southeast Michigan.
The only down side of this sausage is that they hardly ever have it in the meat case, and I have to special order it.
Since I was in another favorite store, Holiday Market in Royal Oak, I checked out the meat case there to see what they might have. This led me to try the dried tomato-basil sausage, made with chicken and turkey.
It is great to have so many choices of locally-made products. Like the pizza sausage, this one is made in the shop by the meat department.
Oh, yes, this one is good, too!
I fried it in a skillet Unleashed New Price: $7.99 Old Price: $7.99 You Save: before adding it to the pizza. You do have to watch it closely. The dried tomatoes and other ingredients can burn if you’re not careful.
This sausage goes nicely with my favorite sauce, Pastorelli. It has a savory zing, spicy but not overpowering.
Now I’ll just have to make a pizza with some of each, and do a taste comparison. Any excuse for more homemade sausage pizzas!by
