Crimini, Blue Cheese, & Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil Pizza
10 May, 2014
1 package of fresh whole wheat pizza dough
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
2 Tbsp Wild Mushroom & Sage Olive Oil
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms such as Cremini, Shitake, Oyster, Porcnini, Chanterelle, etc.
sea salt & fresh ground black pepper to taste
In a large saute pan heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Add the mushrooms and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt to taste. Saute until they just begin to turn a light golden-brown color. Add the sliced shallot and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the shallot is sweet, soft, and also gently caramelized. Adjust seasoning as desired with salt and pepper.
Preheat the oven to 450 F. To assemble, roll pizza dough into a very thin circle. Place the rolled dough on to a sheet pan or pizza pan either greased with olive oil, lined with parchment, or dusted with cornmeal. Arrange the caramelized mushroom-shallot mixture evenly over both pieces of dough. Sprinkle each with equal portions of crumbled blue cheese, and another drizzle of Mushroom-Sage Olive Oil, and additional fresh ground pepper (if desired).
Slide the pizza in to the preheated oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes until the cheese is melted and beginning to caramelize and the crust is golden brown and slightly puffed. Rotate the pizza half way through the cooking process to ensure that each cooks evenly. Serves 4-6
