Spicy Sausage

2 pounds ground pork
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
1-1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 garlic cloves, crushed

Rest of Pizza:

1 (10-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
Cooking spray
5 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese (about 3/4 of an 8 oz bag)
4 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil
1 (14.5-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, drained well
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Combine all ingredients for spicy sausage in a large bowl. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain. Preheat oven to 450°. Unroll dough onto large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Pat the dough out. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border, and top with sausage, basil, and tomatoes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pepper. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until cheese melts.
