A note about serious food allergies

Just like peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, or Sonny and Cher; ricotta and honey is a duo that just makes sense.

Sweet, meaty, creamy, and savory - this pizza hits all the right notes.

  1. 1

    Prepare Sausage and Pre-Heat Oven

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil or use a non-stick baking sheet. Using the back of a spoon or small pan, gently crush fennel seeds in their bag to release natural flavorful oils (no need to finely grind, a coarse cracking is fine). In a small bowl combine ground pork, cracked fennel seeds, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of black pepper. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Throughly rinse produce and pat dry. Stem and mince parsley, reserving a few whole leaves for garnish. Peel and slice shallot lengthwise into thin strips (julienne).

  3. 3

    Make Herbed Ricotta

    Whisk ricotta and minced parsley together in a mixing bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  4. 4

    Prepare Pizzas

    Place crusts on prepared baking sheet and brush with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Spread pizza sauce on each crust. Arrange sliced shallot (to taste) over the sauce. Scatter small bits of the fennel pork sausage over crusts. Bake until sausage is cooked all the way through, about 15-17 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.

  5. 5

    Top with Herbed Ricotta

    Working quickly with a spoon, top pizzas with dollops of herbed ricotta.

  6. 6

    Plate the Pizzas

    Garnish pizzas with reserved parsley leaves, Parmesan, and finish with a drizzle of honey. Serve immediately.
