Confession time: I love pork, and I love apricots, and I REALLY love them together. A couple weeks ago I became obsessed with putting them together in a new way, something different from the Pork, Olive, Apricot Ravioli I’ve already shared with you. I walked around my office stopping my coworkers in the halls and asking them what they thought of this combination or that. I called my friend in Richmond. I made notes. And then I experimented. Now it is time to unveil the result. Behold the Sausage Apricot Pizza with Mustard-Dressed Greens!
It is so damn good.
The sausage apricot pizza combines salty-spicy pork sausage and shallots with the sweetness of apricot spread. Then it’s baked up with a generous layer of delicious gruyere to balance out and unify the flavors.
Finally, the hot, crispy, melty pizza is topped with a fresh salad of spinach leaves dressed lightly with Dijon mustard and olive oil and sprinkled with shelled pistachios for extra crunch.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
