1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
How to Make It
Position an oven rack in lowest setting. Place a pizza stone on lowest rack.
Preheat oven to 500°. Preheat pizza stone 30 minutes before baking pizza.
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.
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.
Bake at 500° for 8 minutes or until crust is golden. Remove from pizza stone. Sprinkle with cheese. Cut pizza into 8 wedges.

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.
