National Sausage Pizza Day

Every year on October 11, gourmets across the country celebrate National Sausage Pizza Day. During this holiday, you should definitely try pizza with sausage, complementing it with mushrooms, various cheeses and other toppings. You can also experiment with types of sausage in pizza, because now there are a huge number of variations of this dish.


This national day falls on Pizza Month, which is an additional reason to celebrate. Sausage has been used in pizza for a very long time, and Italian sausages are almost as popular as toppings as their sister pepperoni sausage. The most classic are beef sausage, chicken sausage and pork sausage. Modern chefs have modernized the recipe for sausages, thanks to which you can now find notes of apples, fennel, garlic, red pepper, cheese, black pepper and other ingredients in them. Quite deservedly, the sausage with which traditional pizza is usually made is considered as ancient as the pizza itself.

  • according to a 2013 poll, sausage pizza is one of the top three favorite pizzas in America;
