Sausage is one of the most popular pizza toppings. Separate yourself from competitors by making sausage in-house. Customers will perk up when your servers describe house-made sausage with fresh herbs and spices. Create distinct flavored sausage to fit your menu needs by including fennel, garlic or heating it up with crushed red pepper.
