Budget Recipe: Sausage Meatball Pizzas

LoadingAdd to recipe box

Sausages come in all sorts of flavours and the meat within is full of herb and spice. Split the skins and pinch pieces of sausage meat and pop them onto this simple pizza.


1 quantity easy bread dough (or your own preferred pizza base)

8 good quality sausages, pork, beef or lamb will work well (chicken ones can be a bit squishy to try and use for sausage meatballs)

½ tin of whole peeled tomatoes

1 tablespoon sugar

½ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

1 ½ cups of basil leaves

3 cups of grated mozzarella


In a small saucepan, add tomatoes, sugar, pepper and salt and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and allow to simmer for 10 minutes until thickened. Set aside and allow to cool.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees or what temperature your pizza base recipe specifies.

If using our dough recipe, divide the dough into 4 balls and roll them into large discs on round pizza pans or a flat sheet pan.

Brush the pizza bases with a thin layer of the tomato sauce.

Split the skins of the sausages and dot the pizza bases with balls of sausage meat

Scatter mozzarella over pizzas.

Bake in the hot oven for about 15 minutes or until the base is crisp and cheese bubbling.

Scatter pizzas with picked basil leaves and serve immediately.
