Inspired by a signature pizza from the Mellow Mushroom restaurant chain, this pizza is a richly-flavored blend of caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, garlic, truffle oil, goat cheese (chèvre), and fresh mozzarella baked atop our crispy, homemade, White-Wheat Crust. Topped with a sprinkle of fresh chives and an extra drizzle of truffle oil just before serving, it’s a real treat for mushroom lovers.

This thin-crust pizza for mushroom lovers is topped with caramelized onions, mushrooms, garlic, goat cheese, fresh mozzarella, truffle oil and fresh chives.

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons minced garlic, about 3 medium cloves
  • 1 tablespoon white truffle oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 12 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces goat cheese (chèvre), crumbled
  • 2 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • 1/2 recipe White-Wheat Pizza Dough, or your favorite store-bought dough

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 475°F, lightly oil a 12-inch round pizza pan, sprinkle with a little cornmeal and set aside.
  • Combine 1 teaspoon of the garlic with the truffle oil in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, 7 to 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, add the remaining garlic and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden in color, 10 to 12 minutes longer.
    Note: If you feel the mixture is too dry during cooking, just add a little water.
  • Once the onions are golden, add the mushrooms and cook just long enough for them to shrink slightly and become tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
  • Roll the pizza dough to fit the prepared pan. Spread the garlic-truffle oil mixture over the entire surface and pre-bake the crust for 5 minutes.
  • Remove the crust from the oven and spread the onion-mushroom mixture evenly on top. Arrange the cheeses evenly around the pizza and return to the oven until the crust is nicely toasted and the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with fresh chives and drizzle with a little extra truffle oil. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.
