Skip take-out pizza and make it at home instead! Spicy Sausage Pizza is loaded with so much flavor that will be a hit with everyone in your family.
The crust is made using my tried and true homemade crust recipe. It gets topped with loads of spicy sausage, sweet peppers, onions, chili oil, crushed red pepper, and mozzarella cheese. It just may be the best spicy pizza out there. If you are looking for something different, give this pizza a try!
We are taking a break from sweets today and focusing on another one of my beloved favorites, PIZZA!!
We all know how delicious this carby meal is and I’m excited to share my latest version.
Today’s spicy sausage pizza is a real kicker. It puts fire on the taste buds.
If you are not a fan of spicy food, I’m sorry to say, this pizza is not for you. You may want to try my bbq chicken pizza instead!
Assembling Spicy Sausage Pizza
I use my favorite pizza dough and topped it with loads of spicy sausage. I actually used breakfast sausage because I’m not a fan of Italian sausage. However, you can certainly top your pizza with any spicy sausage you like.
I found the best pizza sauce and used that instead of store-bought but again, you can use whatever you like.
Onion and mini sweet peppers are the vegetables I chose to compliment the hot sausage. I love the slight touch of sweetness from the peppers. The onion will cook down and become a little sweet as well!
Once the pizza has finished cooking, drizzle it with chili oil and sprinkle some crushed red pepper on top.
This is the type of food that makes my husband want to marry me all over again. It’s the right combination of simple ingredients with the perfect amount of heat.
He is a spicy food loving guy after all.

Oh boy Jen. . .you have no idea how much this beauty is making me crave pizza. And for me the spicier the better. . .well. . .I take that back. . .I had pizza in Shanghai that was so spicy my mouth was on fire. But aside from that I like my pizza hot sauce’d and chili pepper’d up. This pizza is beautiful. . . and since there really aren’t any good pizza places in Seaport, the area I live in. . .my best bet is to make my own.
You’d love this pizza, Lynn! I don’t think it would be as hot as the one Shanghai, but it would certainly heat your mouth.
Girl, you are killin’ it. This pizza is total perfection. Something my whole family will not only eat, but totally adore. Cannot wait to try this out!
Thanks, Karly! If your family loves spicy food, they will certainly enjoy this pizza!
Pizza is my favorite, hands down! I could eat it every day, and often eat it every week, as it’s SO good! I’ll have to try this sausage version…love making homemade pizza!

This looks like such a fun new flavor for pizza to try out! I definitely need to branch out from my normal plain cheese pizza once in a while!
