Iron Fish Distillery’s Sassage Pizza

May 20, 2023

Most folks know Iron Fish Distillery for their award-winning spirits, but have you heard about their wood-fired pizzas? We’re hooked on their Sassage pie ($21), which is a Michigan meat lovers’ dream. Aged hard salami, pecan wood-smoked bacon, and buffalo and pork sausage are the core ingredients at play. (Want to know how the sausage gets made? According to Iron Fish’s website, it uses “bison from Myer Farm in Copemish, MI. The bison feed on the nutrient dense spent grains left over from Iron Fish spirits.”) Add in some classic red sauce, parmesan, mozzarella, and microgreens, and you have a solid pizza. Throw in some Mr. Bing Chili Crisp—a spicy, chili-oil based topping—and you have a great pizza. Enjoy your slice with one of the distillery’s flagship cocktails and then finish the night out with their delicious Turkish Diplomat baklava. Find all that and more in the tasting room at 14234 Dzuibanek Road in Thompsonville. (231) 378-3474, ironfishdistillery.com
