If you have never had sweet apple chicken sausage, run to your local store and grab it now. It is the perfect combination of sweet and savory, AND it is healthy! It comes precooked, so all you have to do is heat it up and you are good to go. SO easy! I love putting it in egg scrambles, pasta, and stir-fry's, but my favorite way to eat it is on homemade pizza. In fact, this is by far my favorite homemade pizza recipe.

I love incorporating colorful vegetables such as peppers, and spinach in the topping to add more nutrients for my family.

I always add a little cheese before the toppings to ensure every piece of pizza has plenty of gooey cheese.

The 16oz package of chicken sausage is plenty of meat to cover a whole large homemade pizza.

Topping the pizza with lots of mozzarella cheese AND feta and/or goat cheese creates a burst of flavor that balances out the sweetness of the chicken sausage.

This pizza hits the spot every single time. I promise you and your family will not be disappointed!
