• 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2/3 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


Make a couple of hours before using to blend flavors. Combine all ingredients well. (I do use the red pepper flakes.) Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. If using for pizza, crumble and partially cook before putting on top of pizza. May also make into small patties and cook in skillet until cooked through.
