German-inspired pizza is a new take on comfort food

German comfort food and pizza collide on this flatbread that has plenty of bratwurst and sauerkraut with each bite.

For something just a little bit different for dinner that is light, rustic and hearty at the same time, how about some bratwurst pizza? Well, it’s more than just bratwurst — it’s sauerkraut, two kinds of cheese and a hint of rosemary.

And you’ll never guess what the sauce is made of. It’s Thousand Island dressing, which gives this pizza a bit of sweet to go along with the sauerkraut.

I think my fave part besides all of it are the apples on top. So for a fun and different pizza, make it a German-fest dinner tonight.
