    1. Preheat oven to 250 C / Gas 9.

    3. Pour remaining 5 teaspoons olive oil into the same pan and cook and stir garlic until fragrant, about 20 seconds. Add Brussels sprouts to garlic; cook, stirring constantly, until sprouts begin to brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer sprouts and garlic to a bowl and crumble cooled pancetta over the mixture. Add mozzarella cheese and fennel seed; toss to coat. Place pizza base onto a baking tray and spread Brussels sprouts mixture atop.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.

    Truly a wonderful gourmet pizza. Every ingredient worked beautifully together and the fennel seeds give a special touch. I added a tiny bit of red chili flakes before eating which was a nice addition. Great way to get your kids to eat their brussel sprouts. My bake-time was a little longer than 10 minutes for my oven. I will cut down on the amount of oil I use next time.  -  25 Feb 2014  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was surprisingly delicious! I actually stumbled upon this recipe looking for a pancetta/sprouts recipe for a side dish. I made the sprouts part of this recipe, leaving out the cheese but adding the fennel seed, to have as a side dish one night, then the next night I mixed the leftovers with the cheese and topped a pizza with it. Both were fabulous! I love the addition of fennel seed in this. This turned out to be one of my all-time favorite pizza toppings! Thanks for sharing!  -  23 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
