Mushroom Pizza is one of the most popular pizzas. For this pizza parlor favorite, you can use sliced cremini or white button Mushrooms or make it with all sorts of exotic and wild mushrooms. In the end, they all must be sliced thinly so they cook evenly and quickly.The only other trick? Make sure you saut them long enough so they give off their liquid in the skillet and it evaporates almost completely to keep the crust from getting soggy over the heat. Makes 1 pizza. Ingredients and simple directions:
SIMPLE MUSHROOM PIZZA RECIPE
With a pizza stone. Preheat the stone in the oven at 450F for 30 to 45 minutes; or preheat the stone on a gas grill at medium, indirect heat (about 450F) for 30 to 45 minutes; or build an indirect, medium- heat coal bed in a charcoal grill and preheat the stone for the same amount of time.
With a pizza tray or a large baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 450F, a gas grill to indirect, medium heat (about 450F), or build an indirect, medium- heat coal bed around the perimeter of a charcoal grill.
Fresh dough on a pizza stone. Dust a pizza peel with flour, set the dough at its center, and form the dough into a large, flat circle by dimpling it with your fingertips. Pick it up by its edge and rotate it, stretching gently, until it’s about 14 inches in diameter. Set it floured side down on the peel.
Fresh dough on a pizza tray or a large baking sheet. Grease the tray or baking sheet with olive oil. Lay the dough at the center and dimple the dough with your fingertips’then pull and press it until it forms a 14- inch circle on the tray or an irregular rectangle, about 12 7 inches, on the baking sheet.
A prebaked crust. Place it on a floured pizza peel if you’re also using a pizza stone or place the pre baked crust right on a pizza tray or a large baking sheet.
LITTLE TIP: You’ll need 12 to 14 ounces of mushrooms to get 4 cups sliced. Avoid Portobello caps because they are too big. And use only the caps of shiitake mushrooms, not their fibrous stems. In any case, clean whole mushrooms with damp paper towels.
