This recipe was inspired by a pound of “Italian Pizza Sausage” made by a local farmer. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I was so excited to see locally and humanely raised pork that I couldn’t pass it up. We have been addicted ever since.
We affectionately named this meal “Pizza Rice” after my non-allergic kids favorite carry out meal: sausage pizza. Obviously, pizza is not allergy-friendly, so this is a great way to enjoy the flavor of sausage pizza without the allergens and additives.
Because I try to keep rice cooked in chicken stock in the freezer at all times, this meal comes together very quickly. I cook a stock pot full of rice, let it cool, divide and toss in the freezer. This way I am always ready for a quick stir-fry or Mexican dish.
“Pizza Rice” has been a great dish to take to our church pot luck dinners. It’s something everyone can enjoy as a side dish, and if there is nothing safe for Bella to eat, this will be satisfying and filling in itself.
