Hot Sausage Feta Honey Pizza and Grace and Frankie

Hello Friends, welcome to Pizza and a Movie on Djalali Cooks. Today’s spicy and sweet pizza is a good match for Netflix’s Television series, Grace and Frankie. We have hot Italian sausage, mozzarella and feta, topped with Mike’s Hot Honey after the bake. A simple pizza with amazing spicy sweet flavors. This is an easy one, so let’s get right to it!

You can brown the sausage well ahead of time, if you like. I have 12-16 ounces of hot Italian Sausage links that I squished out of their casings; browned then scooped out of the pan with slotted spoon and transferred to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

Build the Hot Sausage Feta Honey Pizza

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F with a pizza steel or stone. I have about 1 cup of grated mozzarella cheese, a hunk of Israeli Feta from Trader Joe’s and my browned hot Italian Sausage.

Roll, stretch, spin or pull your prepared pizza dough out to about a 12-inch round on a floured pizza peel. Top with the mozzarella.

Then add the sausage, spread evenly over the cheese. Top the sausage with as much feta as you like. And we are ready for the oven. Be prepared to lose a few toppings; as you shimmy the peel to slide the pizza onto the stone or steel, it’s inevitable that few bits of sausage and feta will roll off.

Bake the pizza for 10-15 minutes until the crust is golden and puffed up and the mozzarella is melted and browning in spots. The feta will not completely melt.

When the pizza comes out of the oven, slice it up and then drizzle the hot honey (as liberally as you like) over the cut pizza.

The salty/sweet/spicy combination from the sausage, feta and honey cannot be beat! I absolutely love this combination of flavors. Last week we had a riff on this type of flavor combination with our Pesto, Pepperoni and Pineapple Pizza. There are endless ways to create this flavor symphony, today’s Hot Sausage Feta Honey Pizza being only one – but perhaps one that more people can get behind.

Movie Night: Grace and Frankie

We have our Hot Sausage Feta Honey Pizza ready, so let’s get to the show! The last several episodes of Grace and Frankie were released a couple weeks ago, wrapping up the longest running TV show on Netflix. I imagine many of you have seen this show, but if you haven’t I highly recommend you do! With a fantastic ensemble cast, this show is heartfelt, sweet, funny and thoroughly entertaining.

This show is ultimately about starting over (at any age) and friendship. Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda are brilliant comedic actresses; their chemistry is a joy to watch. Over 7 seasons, we see their relationship blossom from barely tolerating each other to growing into a lifelong companionship. Few shows out there capture such a joyous space. Schitt’s Creek is one, but this show focuses its attention on women in their 70s, and I think that really makes Grace and Frankie special and unto itself.

As a fun bonus, I found this blooper reel of the final season. Enjoy! The entire Grace and Frankie series is available to watch with a subscription to Netflix.

Thank you all so much for joining me today. I hope you have wonderful weekend! xo Kelly

    LOL! I sent this to my kids, and they all said thank you. Two of them will be making it this weekend, and I will be making it tonight. Two of them cook and bake, but my other one never made it past fish sticks or takeout. I’m sure he must have made other things, but I don’t know. I don’t think I ever watched Grace and Frankie, and I’m not sure I had heard about it, which is unfortunate, because it looks good. I exercised with Jane Fonda every morning for over ten years, and had all the vhs tapes. My daughter joined me, and eventually we moved on to other tapes and DVDs.
    I preferred reading to TV, and if I watched anything, it was something my husband watched. Quite often I would sit with him and read while he watched his shows. I have seen and admired both actresses many times over the years. Back in the day Miss Fonda gave a speech at my school. I remember thinking how small and pretty she was, and how brave to make a speech in front of people she didn’t know. A lot of people disliked her for her advocacy, and they missed some amazing performances boycotting her.
    Now back to our regularly scheduled and often I interrupted, long running series, Stump The Chef. Today’s category is goofy, but holds fond memories for me. Children’s shows of the 50s. One you may have heard of, the second one, probably not, but it is on YouTube. Everyone watched The Flintstones. We thought it was funny, but mostly we wondered if you could live in a cave and drive a card made out of a huge rock. My mother hated the show and said Fred was a blowhard, but that’s how he was written. We enjoyed his gruff and sometimes surly interactions and outlook on life, because like my Dad, he was a softy underneath his gruff exterior. He even vaguely resembled my Dad. What kind of pizza would Fred and Barney eat after their Friday evening bowling league. I only remember them eating bronto burgers and ribs that threatened to capsize their cars when tey went to the drive in. I think a good pizza would have definitely improved his outlook on life. The second entry was featured on Captain Kangaroo. The Captain was on every morning from Monday through Friday. I was a very introverted child and I was frightened leaving home to such an extent, that I became physically ill. Captain Kangaroo was very soothing and kindly, and featured a cartoon called Tom Terrific who could be anything he wanted to be as the theme song went. He simply redrew himself into other shapes. That wasn’t very difficult since he was basically a line drawing of an intrepid little boy with a funnel on his head. Tom hung out with a big dog, and had an archenemy called Crabby Appleton. There were twenty some episodes made and they were in syndication throughout part of my childhood., so I watched Tom a lot, but I have forgotten most of it. I have such fond memories, and Tom helped me get through K-2. By third grade I was used to school and not so timid, and I didn’t need Captain Kangaroo, but I still liked Tom Terrific. If Tom could turn himself into anything, he could have drawn himself a pizza. What would he have liked? Back then we had pizza on Friday, and it was always the boxed and ghastly Chef Boyardee cheese pizza. For years I didn’t Ike pizza. The parents finally gave up making me eat that dreadful pizza, and let me eat peanut butter and jelly. I’m sure I can’t imagine what kind of pizza I would have drawn because I couldn’t imagine it being good. Luckily for Tom, he had imagination and talent. What kind of pizza would an imaginary super hero little boy eat when he wasn’t after. Crabby Appleton?
    Happy Friday to Kelly, Alex, Terry, Beth and the superhero canine triplets. Have a great weekend and lots of sunshine. 😊☔️🌷

      Hi Mari! The long awaited return of Stump the Chef! Ok so I used to watch the Flintstones on the morning reruns, it amazed me when I learned that it was a primetime show in its first run! I always loved imagining living in their caveman-world. I imagine their pizza would be a Bronto-meat supreme; with Bronto-pepperoni and Bronto-sausage.
      I also watched Captain Kangaroo. I don’t recall Tom Terrific, but after watching a few of the episodes I get the feeling he would be a vegetarian. So Tom’s pizza (that he would share with Manfred the Wonder Dog) would be a mushroom pizza, with dandelions and olive oil.
      What a fun trip down memory lane, Mari! Thank you so much for bringing back Stump the Chef! Have a beautiful weekend, xo Kelly
