Fennel + Sausage Pizza


My version of the Fennel + Sausage Pizza from Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles.

Fennel + Sausage Pizza
  1. 1 pizza dough
  2. 1/2 lb of Italian sausage (casings removed)
  3. 1 bulb of chopped fennel (reserving some of the fronds)
  4. 4 oz. of creme fraiche
  5. 1/2 - 2/3 cup of grated mozzarella
  6. 3 TBL of thinly sliced red onion
  7. 2 scallion greens, thinly sliced
  8. Curry powder
  9. Olive oil
  10. Salt & Pepper
  1. Preheat oven (and baking stone, if using) as high as it will go (mine is 550º F).
  2. In a medium pan, sautée the chopped fennel in a couple of teaspoons of olive oil until softened, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add the sausage, season with salt and plenty of pepper, then cook until sausage is lightly browned, about 4-5 mins.
  4. Roll out pizza dough (as thin as possible) on a lightly floured surface.
  5. Place onto hot pizza stone or other pan.
  6. Cover the dough with a layer of crème frâiche. Using a slotted spoon, try to remove as much oil from the sausage and fennel mixture as possible, then place on top of the creme fraiche.
  7. Top with mozzarella, 1/2 the red onion and 1/2 the scallions.
  8. Bake on lowest rack in oven until crust is golden brown.
  9. Timing will vary depending upon how big or thick the pizza is, as well as what temperature you are using.
  10. Before serving, top with remaining onions, a few fennel fronds and sprinkle curry powder lightly over the entire pizza.
  1. Buon Appetito!
