Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 2280 - Fennel, Sausage & Kale Pizza

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 390°F/ Gas 6

Put a large baking tray (or two) in the oven to heat up (this will stop the pizza bottoms from going soggy!)

Remove the sausage meat from their skins and discard the skins

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Peel and finely slice the red onion[s]

2 2280 - Fennel, Sausage & Kale Pizza

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the sausage meat, breaking it up into small pieces with a wooden spoon as you go, then add the garlic and fennel seeds (not a fan of aniseed? Go easy!)

Cook for 3 min or until the sausage meat has slightly browned

3 2280 - Fennel, Sausage & Kale Pizza

Once the sausage has browned, push to one side of the pan and add the sliced red onion to the other side with a pinch of salt and cook for 2 mins until softened

Add the balsamic vinegar and a pinch of sugar to the softened onions and cook for 2 min further or until the onions are caramelised and the sausage meat is brown and crispy

4 2280 - Fennel, Sausage & Kale Pizza

Meanwhile, add the tomato paste to a bowl with a generous pinch of salt, pepper and sugar

Add 5 tbsp [10 tbsp] cold water and stir it all together – this is your tomato sauce

Drain and pat the mozzarella dry with kitchen paper (squeeze as much liquid out as you can!)

Tear the drained mozzarella into rough, bite-sized pieces

5 2280 - Fennel, Sausage & Kale Pizza

Once the sausage meat has browned, add the kale to the pan and give everything a good mix up

Cook, covered, for 1-2 min or until the kale is starting to wilt – this is your kale & sausage mixture

6 2280 - Fennel, Sausage & Kale Pizza

Remove the heated tray[s] from the oven and add the pizza bases

Divide the tomato sauce between the pizza bases and spread it evenly all over them with the back of a spoon

Top with the torn mozzarella and kale & sausage mixture

7 2280 - Fennel, Sausage & Kale Pizza

Put the tray[s] in the oven for 10-12 min or until the mozzarella has melted and the pizza bases are crispy - these are your fennel, sausage & kale pizzas
