1 large head Royal Rose Radicchio
1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 12-inch whole grain fresh pizza crust
½ cup freshly grated Parmigiano reggiano cheese
Heat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut the radicchio in half and slice each half crosswise into thin ribbons.
Mix radicchio and fennel in a medium bowl. Dress with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Place pizza crust on a baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes, or slightly golden, but not crunchy.
Scatter the dressed radicchio and fennel over the pizza crust.
Return pizza to the oven for another 3 to5 minutes or until the radicchio and fennel are warm and just starting to wilt.
Sprinkle with cheese and serve immediately.
