The secret spice in Totinos pizza

Does anyone else like Totinos pizza? They are a cheap pizza but they all have this one secret ingredient. It's some sort of spice. From my research it seems to be fennel seed. Does anyone know what I am talking about? It's a little seed that they add that brings out the pizza.

Yes it is fennel seed. It has the same flavoring as most different Anise spices (kind of a black licorice flavor) - shows up in a lot of dishes, especially Mediterranean.

I have a bottle that has been sitting around for a couple of years and I put it out in front a month ago so I would use it more. Some middle eastern countries use this mainly with some other spices as an after meal breathe/digestive aid. This got me wondering about looking for recipes that specifically use this, so I can make use of it more.

Haven't had one in years. Should pick one up for old times sake. I associated the taste with it being cheap but it's been awhile.
