The topping is piled high, making this like a deep dish-style pizza. Fantastic flavor from the sweet caramelized fennel and salty olives - so much so, I think the mozzarella may be unnecessary, and I almost never say such a thing! The dough was a touch too floury; i'd use a lighter hand kneading next time.
Pizza with Caramelized Fennel, Onion, and Olives

Fennel bulbs are abundant, fresh, and inexpensive right now so thought I would try this for our Friday night pizza. Loved it....very different flavors...the fennel and onions were so sweet. I garnished the pizza with chopped fennel fronds which made it very attractive. I agree with the other reviewer....just a small sprinkling of cheese is necessary. I wonder how it would taste without the red sauce....I might try it again without, or perhaps a white sauce.
