Spicy Sausage Mini Pizzas

 

Sriracha pizza sauce, jalapeños, summer sausage and jalapeño cheddar cheese top this delicious mini pizza recipe, perfect for game days and parties!

Growing up, my favorite month of the year was December because it just so happens to be my birthday month, Christmas and Hickory Farms sets up their stand in the mall, which means Beef Summer Sausage, Cheese Balls and Crackers are a totally acceptable meal for lunch, basically every day in my house!

Today I’m so excited to share my first recipe in partnership with Hickory Farms, a brand I’ve grown up with and loved my entire life!

While I’m still a big fan of slicing up the summer sausage and cheese, serving it with crackers, and calling it lunch, I’ve also started experimenting with recipes that incorporate Hickory Farms Signature Beef Summer Sausage!

 

This mini pizza recipe is perfect for parties, game days or weekday dinners, it’s easy to make and totally brings the flavor!

The great thing about serving individual mini pizzas is that you can make each one their own! If you want a mini pizza with a little less spice, omit the jalapeños, if you like your mini pizza extra cheesy, pile it on baby, if you like your mini pizza extra meaty, toss on a few extra slices of summer sausage! No matter how you customize your mini pizza, the combination of flavors from the Sriracha Pizza Sauce, Summer Sausage and Jalapeño & Cheddar Cheese, is amazing!
