Northern California allows easier access to the, in my Disgruntled Old Coot Opinion, finest pizza topping EVER!!!
Sliced linguicia is a distant second.
Oh how I miss my beloved linguicia.
Here atop the cultural backwater of the Ozark Plateau nary a linguicia-topped pizza is to be found.
Neither is there a source for ANY linguicia. A full raw or pre-cooked refrigerated or frozen sausage.
What with having been one of MILLIONS to be shoved face-down into an economic quagmire I have no funds to order my beloved linguicia from afar and have it shipped to me.
Unless local conditions change it appears I will remain linguicia-less for the rest of the few years (if that many) left to my mortal existence.
Perhaps whatever, if any, after-life awaits my aging decrepit self will offer my longed-for, lusted-after, liver-quivering gustatory delight;
a cooked-just-right linguicia-topped pizza.
The folks above have linguicia as a pizza topping!!!

Above is a sliced linguicia-topped pizza. The next best pizza to a crumbled linguicia-topped pizza in a Disgruntled Old Coots Gustatory Opinion ™.
Not quite a pizza but easily and quickly prepared at home using English muffins.
I wonder how to make one’s own crumbled-type linguicia? Cook it to a “bacon bits” type consistently then crumble it in some manner? I have seen linguicia sold as an entire uncooked sausage. Maybe in your area linguicia can be bought pre-sliced or your local butcher can slice it or maybe pre-cooked linguicia is available or whatever.
What I do know is the wonderfulness of a crumbled linguicia-topped pizza!!!
Others have their linguicia tales to tall——-> Linguica and Me
I just stumbled upon a Web site also mentioning THEIR lust for crumbled-linguicia-topped pizza and those fine folks included a link to…

If I win the Lottery or can marry one of those apparently proverbial “rich widow ladies” or somehow amass the discretionary wealth I would be able to order some pre-ground linguicia, buy the finest local cheese pizza then cook the pre-crumbled linguicia and pile it upon the pizza!!!
Huzzah ans hosanna!!!
