Oxmoor House
8 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)

The combination of Italian sausage, fennel, and red onion combines pleasant spicy heat with intriguing anise flavor for a complex-tasting pizza.

How to Make It

Step 1

Position an oven rack in lowest setting. Place a pizza stone on lowest rack.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 500°. Preheat pizza stone 30 minutes before baking pizza.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pepper to pan; cook 10 seconds. Remove casings from sausage. Add sausage, fennel, and onion to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble sausage. Stir in salt. Add tomato; sauté 2 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat.

Step 4

Spread sausage mixture over Basic Pizza Dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Slide dough onto preheated pizza stone, using a spatula as a guide.

Step 5

Bake at 500° for 8 minutes or until crust is golden. Remove from pizza stone. Sprinkle with cheese. Cut pizza into 8 wedges.

Delicious! I used hot turkey sausage instead of sweet and Pillsbury pizza dough instead of homemade, so it wasn't exact, but it was still great!

Very good, will make again, I too did not use 1/4 cup of the cheese, very filling, I used regular pork sausage instead of turkey, which I bought by mistake. Delish!

My husband and I loved this recipe and will make again! We did not even use the full 1/4 cup of cheese. The veggies and sausage gave the pizza amazing flavors on its own. This will join our "Go To" recipe rotation.

The topping for this pizza is amazing! I would make it and eat it out of a bowl it is just that good. I can't rave enough about it. It was easy, absolutely delicious, and impressed everyone. I did not make the pizza dough, but instead used a whole wheat pizza dough from Trader Joe's which I would not use again.

Awesome! I'm not a big fan of sausage pizza, but this had great spice and flavor. I did it on a whole wheat crust. Yum!
