6 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Once fennel is roasted, remove from oven and set aside. Turn heat in oven up to 500 degrees.
Top prepared pizza crust with Garlic White Sauce, then roasted fennel, then crumbled Italian sausage, then mozzarella. Bake 5-10 minutes, or until edges are golden and cheese is bubbly.
