Smoked Caciocavallo & Feta Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 batch fresh pizza dough (how to make the perfect pizza dough)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, store-bought or homemade
  • 2 cups grated Saputo Smoked Caciocavallo
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced roasted red peppers
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted & halved
  • 1/2 cup sauteed sliced Cremini mushrooms*
  • 1/2 cup Saputo Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Micro arugula greens, to garnish

 

*Note: To make the sauteed mushrooms, simply slice them & cook them in a frying pan for 5 minutes with a touch of butter, salt & pepper. It adds more flavour then using raw mushrooms as a topping. 

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. if using a pizza stone, preheat the oven with the stone placed inside.
  2. On a floured surface roll out the pizza dough to the desired thickness. Roll it out to a 1/4-inch-thick as the dough rises quite a bit.
  3. Brush with olive oil & season with salt & pepper.
  4. Add an even layer of sauce followed by an even layer of the grated Caciocavallo cheese.
  5. Top with roasted red peppers, olives, mushrooms & Feta.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the crust is cooked throughout & the edges are golden brown.
  7. Garnish with micro arugula. Slice & serve!
