What is the spice or herb or whatever in the susage they put on pizzas that looks like a little grain of barley?  I want to get some to make some axis venison sausage meatballs for spaghetti.

TIA

bon apetite!

Thanks, DF, but no - it looks like an individual piece of grain - like a shrunken piece of rice with a slit along it's length.

It's Caraway, often called Caraway seed, but it is actually dried fruit:

Excellent on a pork roast or chops.

Agreed! It harmonizes particularly well with garlic in pork and vegetable dishes, but don't try to combine it with other spices, it is too overpowering.

I learned this from watching Cooking at the CIA shows on PBS:

Spices are seeds.
Herbs are leaves.

NO NO NO!
Not carraway...FENNEL!
Fennel is also a dried fuit looking like carraway, but fennel is proper in italian sausage which is what is used on pizza.
Caraway may taste good also but it has a distict flavor closer to dill.  Fennel is closer to a anise flavor (licorice-like).
Taste each one first before you add to the meats.

I thought herb was a bud.

Wha'd the CIA teach, anyway??  "Assassination chili", "lamb shank with listening device", and of course the omnipresent "secret sauce"? [:D]

Yeah, probably fennel, but don't they sometimes put anise seed on pizza (has a licorice taste)?  Maybe I'm thinking of italian sausage.

If that came off your sausage, man you got problems.

If that's Italian sausage then it could be fennel seed.

red-don has it right. It is fennel.
