Course: Pizza
Author: The Cook



  • 700 g lean pork
  • 300 g back fat, jowls, hard fat trimmings

Ingredients per 1000g (1 kg) of meat

  • 1 large brown onion, finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
  • 2 teaspoons cracked pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon allspice


  • Grind pork through an 8 mm plate.
  • Mix all ingredients with the ground pork

With casings:

  • Stuff into 32mm hog casings and tie off into 10 - 15 cm links.
  • Prick sausage with pin or needle to release any air that is trapped in the casing, if necessary
  • Hang the sausage in cool area and allow the casing to air dry.
  • Refrigerate or freeze as desired (but they are best fresh)
  • Cook by grilling, pan frying or steaming.

Without casings:

  • Divide the ground pork into 10 - 12 even portions and shape each portion into a thin sausage shape.
  • Wrap and roll each formed sausage in a piece of plastic wrap and tightly twist the ends closed to seal
  • Bring a large saucepan or stockpot (large enough to hold half of the sausages) of water to the boil.
  • Add half the sausages, still wrapped in plastic. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, turning, until mince changes colour.
  • Carefully remove from pan.
  • Cut plastic from sausages and discard. Repeat with remaining sausages.
  • Refrigerate or freeze as desired (but they are best fresh)
  • Cook by grilling, pan frying or steaming.

If you are going to be making our Fire Breather Pizza, the method without casings is best.
