Wild Pork Sausage, Black Olive, and Mushroom Pizza with Homemade Rosemary Porter Crust

Wild Pork Pizza

The wild pork sausage from this recipe was provided by our Field Staff Writer A. Fick in his recent Wild Pig Hunting trip to Paso Robles, CA. The sausage itself was created with ground pork, fennel, and some parmesan. I love a solid pizza dough so I decided to add a Brown Ale, called Moose Drool by Big Sky Brewing Company, some rosemary and ground black pepper to the dough. The mushrooms, onions, and black olives were added to give the pizza a warm earthy taste.
