Author:
Serves: 4-6 small pizzas
Ingredients
  • 1 recipe for pizza dough (see recipe card)
  • 3-4 Italian sausage links, casing removed
  • 1 fennel bulb, sliced and fronds reserved
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • A couple of grinds of salt and pepper
  • 4 cups shredded pizza cheese (I used a combination of mozzarella, parmesan and provolone)
Instructions
  1. In sauté pan cook sausage, breaking up into small pieces.
  2. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. In same pan cook onion and fennel until softened and lightly browned. I kept the juices from the sausage in the pan to conserve the flavours.
  4. Remove the fennel and onion from pan and set aside.
  5. Add apple slices to same pan, sprinkle with brown sugar and cook until softened and lightly browned. If needed add a little olive oil to keep from sticking.
  6. Remove and set aside.
  7. Mix together 2 tbsp olive oil and garlic oil and sprinkle with some salt and pepper
  8. Once dough is formed, paint with olive oil mixture.
  9. Sprinkle next with some cheese, then fennel, then sausage, then apple, then finally top with a final sprinkling of cheese.
  10. Baked in preheated 500 ° oven or barbecue grill set on maximum on pizza stone for approximately 15 minutes until edges are golden and bottom of crust is lightly browned.
  11. Cut into wedges to serve and dress with reserved fennel fronds.
