Simple ingredients here.  Nothing too complicated.

Some nice, fresh, locally made sweet pork sausage.  Sometimes I like it with the fennel seed, sometimes not.

I try my best not to buy pre shredded cheese.  There is a noticeable difference in taste with the block cheese.  Some of the manufactures put cellulose on the shredded cheese to keep it from sticking together in the package, and even with the premium brands, it is noticeable.

It’s not really too much extra work to either shred it by hand or pull out the food processor.

As a child, I can remember many pizza nights where I would have to shred 3-4 pounds of fresh mozzarella on pizza night with a hand grater.

I am using a pre-made thin crust for my crust.

All cooked up.

The cheese gets nice and browned and the crust gets crispy.

The combination of the pepper jack cheese and the hot tomatoes put a nice zing on my pizza.
