Fruity Pineapple and Sausage Pizza

The meatiness of the sausage and the fruitiness of the pineapple complement one another wonderfully in this sausage pizza recipe. A lot of people are amazed when they first experience pineapple on pizza because it goes so beautifully with ham, sausage or any other meats and it soon becomes a firm favorite.

The red pepper goes nicely with the sausage and gives this Hawaii sausage pizza a bit of bite. If you like sweet toppings on your pizza recipes, try this one because the fresh pineapple is simply wonderful as a topping alongside the meat. For a slightly different flavor, you can use turkey sausage instead of regular sausage. It is just as nice.

This is a pizza of contrasts, because you have the saltiness of the meat along with the sweetness of the pineapple. In addition to the other toppings, those 2 ingredients work beautifully on this pizza. If you are new to pineapple on pizza, you will love what the sweetness does for the overall flavor.

It just works so well. The sausage makes this pizza quite meaty and hearty, while the other toppings add accents of flavor. This could very well become one of the family favorites, although there are so many love pizza recipes a lot of people have several favorites and would find it impossible to pick just the one! Serve pizza whenever you want a cozy family dinner at home or even make a couple of pizzas if you have friends coming over and want to relax over good food.
