Today at the farmers market, I had a hard time finding vegetables that grow above ground. There were parsnips, pumpkins, squash, sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, and beets. Then I came across the mushroom stand. I bought a box of cremini and a box of shiitake. The mushrooms matched with thyme and roasted garlic packed this pizza with flavor. It didn't even need cheese, but I added some anyway because I didn't want my parmesan to feel left out.
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cut off the top of the garlic; drizzle with olive oil and the wrap in foil. Place in oven for roasting. This step should take about ten to fifteen minutes.
2. Prep ingredients
Wash mushrooms; dry with a paper towel
Remove thyme from sprigs
3. Precook dough and ingredients separately
Roll out pizza dough
Precook until crust is crunchy
Heat stainless steel pan to medium; add olive oil
Add onions; cook until brown
Add mushrooms and thyme
Add some kosher salt
Saute until browned
4. Combine ingredients and cook pizza
When pizza dough is almost ready, pull out of the oven and add toppings, including cheese and roasted garlic. Tip: squeeze the base of the garlic ear and the roasted cloves should pop right out. I added them whole. Delicious!
Please back in oven until cheese is melted and mushrooms are hot (about five minutes)
