One 9-ounce ball your favorite pizza dough

1 1/2 ounces your favorite tomato sauce

2 ounces fresh mozzarella, shredded 

1 pinch dried whole-leaf oregano 

1 1/2 to 2 ounces fennel or Italian sausage, cooked 

10 thinly sliced slivers red onion

4 fresh basil leaves 

Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling 


  1. Preheat your oven to the highest possible heat.
  2. Stretch out your dough to a diameter of about 12 inches. Spoon on the tomato sauce in 5 or 6 evenly spaced dollops. Sprinkle the mozzarella and oregano evenly over the sauce, and then top with the sausage, red onions and basil. Drizzle a little olive oil on the basil so it doesn't burn.
  3. Bake on the floor of the oven on a baking sheet or preheated pizza stone until the crust is crisp and the cheese melted.
