Creamy Three Mushroom Pizza

Ingredients

Dough (see note)

  • 360 mL (1½ cups) warm water
  • 20 mL (4 tsp) sugar
  • 15 mL (1 tbsp) active dry yeast
  • 60 mL (4 tbsp) olive oil
  • 10 mL (2 tsp) sea salt
  • 875 mL (3½ cups) all-purpose flour 

Toppings

  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) button mushrooms, sliced
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) oyster mushrooms, sliced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 180 mL (3/4 cup) béchamel sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 mL (1/4 tsp) fresh nutmeg, grated
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) Woolwich Dairy CHEVRAI original goat cheese crumbles
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) Saputo Mozzarellissima shredded cheese
  • 30 mL (2 tbsp) Italian parsley, washed and dried

Directions

For the dough

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the water and sugar. Sprinkle yeast on the surface of the water and let rest for 5 minutes without stirring. Add olive oil and sea salt and stir with a fork. Add 500 mL (2 cups) of flour and stir with a fork until the flour is fully incorporated and the mixture becomes sticky. Add an additional 250 mL (1 cup) of flour and knead to incorporate. Transfer the dough to a work surface floured with the remaining 120 mL (1/2 cup) of flour. Knead for 5-7 minutes, or until the flour is incorporated and the dough is smooth and supple. Transfer the dough to a large oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rest for 90 minutes at room temperature. Divide the dough into 4 balls.

For the pizza

  1. Preheat oven to 230 °C (450 °F) with the rack in the top position. 
  2. In a frying pan, heat the olive oil and brown the garlic for 1 minute. Sauté the mushrooms until they become deep brown in colour. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Roll out a ball of dough into a 40-cm circle. Spread the béchamel sauce over the dough and sprinkle with grated nutmeg. Top the pizza with the sautéed mushrooms, goat cheese and Mozzarellissima.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the crust becomes crispy and the cheese is browned.
    Garnish with fresh parsley and serve.
