Loved this recipe and the chicken apple sausage makes it and gives it so much flavor! Combination of all the flavors makes this a real keeper! Will make again!

Not good. I love all of the ingredients separately, but this just didn't stand out.

Great idea for pizza. Husband and friends LOVED this recipe. Didn't have gouda but substituted asiago and greyere. Definitely a keeper for this family.

I've made this twice before and both my husband and I loved it both times. I'm not much of a fennel lover - don't really like fennel seeds in sausage - but the way they are cooked and combined with the onions is really nice! This time I was worried I didn't have enough gouda so I added a little mozzarella and it was just as good as the first time. I haven't added the chives but based on a previous review, I definitely will next time.

GREAT pizza!! I was leary of the fennel but it was not strong at all. I used Pillsbury refrigerated thin pizza crust and Apple & Gouda Cheese Chicken Sausage that I had in the freezer. So easy, so good.

Made this tonight and absolutely loved it! Followed the recipe exactly except used Boboli prebaked pizza crust and Aidells chicken apple sausage because this is what we have in CA. It looked beautiful and the only problem was that my husband could not stop at 2 slices! I will definitely make it again!

Such great flavors that you don't even notice that there is no 'real' sauce on the pizza. I had never sautéed fennel before, but both the fennel and the onions came out perfectly sweet and tender. The sausage I used had fennel seeds inside, and it only added to the yumminess. The chives on top really add to the pizza, so don't forget them!

My husband and I enjoyed this very much. I didn't change a thing -- the flavors were subtle but tasty. That it was so quick an easy to put together is a big plus!
