Course Main Course
Cuisine American
Servings 8


  • 9-10 pieces applewood smoked bacon
  • 2 pounds raw Spicy Italian Sausage
  • 1 cup chopped green olives
  • 1 cup chopped pepperoni slices
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 ½ cups pizza sauce optional


  • Line a sheet pan with plastic wrap or parchment paper. Arrange bacon into a weave pattern on the pan. Top evenly with the spicy sausage mixture. Sprinkle over the green olives and pat into the sausage.
  • Along the middle arrange a long layer of the pepperoni, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Roll up the “fatty” and be sure the edges are sealed so the melted cheese won’t seep out.
  • Place in a smoker at 250 F for 2-3 hours, or until the internal temperature is 165 F. If you are pressed for time, you can raise the temperature and cook for a shorter amount of time. If you don’t have a smoker, you can also bake this in the oven.
  • When done, and the bacon is crispy, remove and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice into medallions and top with pizza sauce if desired.
