If you are having friends over this pizza is sure to impress. The simple ingredients are elevated to gourmet status by the complexity of flavor combinations. The Violife feta adds a creamy element while the fennel fronds add a beautiful pop of color. My Neapolitan crust recipe is a great addition if you have time to wait for the dough to rise but store-bought dough is a quick substitute.
