Accessories you need



Various recipes called for Andouille sausage. Apparently this imparts a smoked flavour. Polish sausage was recommended as a suitable substitute.

This recipe uses cacciatore sausage with smoked paprika and chipotle powder as substitutes.

    Dough modeI made this almost exactly as the recipe said and my family loved it! I didn’t have smoked paprika so I used hot paprika and therefore left out the cayenne pepper. It was rather hot - perfect for the adults and older children but a little spicy for my younger child. Depends on your taste 😊
