Mushroom Lovers Pizza Ingredients

There’s a bit of flexibility when making portobello mushroom pizzas, this is how we make ours. You will need:

  • Pizza dough (here)
  • Tomato sauce (here)
  • fresh mushrooms
  • extra virgin olive oil

You will also need a pizza oven. We love the Hans Grill Pizza Oven for use on the outdoor grill, or in the kitchen’s oven. We also love the RoccBox outdoor propane pizza oven (similar to an Ooni). You can find them online here:

​Preparing a Delicious Mushroom Pizza

All great pizza starts with the dough. We are using our homemade pizza dough recipe. This recipe makes the best thin crust. You can use ours, or if you do not want to make your own pizza dough you can opt for store-bought. First, stretch the dough out before placing it on a pizza peel.

Then take a large spoonful of your favorite pizza sauce, we are using our easy homemade sauce recipe. You can use store-bought pizza sauce if you’d like.

Spread a thin layer of the sauce on the dough using the back of the spoon.

Next, add about 1/3 cup of cubed mozzarella cheese to the top of the pizza.

Then add the mushrooms. The kind of mushrooms you choose really depends on personal preference. Sliced mushrooms are the easiest to work with, we are using baby bella mushrooms. Here are a few other mushroom options you can use:

  • white button mushrooms
  • cremini mushrooms
  • sauteed mushrooms
  • oyster mushrooms

Next, drizzle a little olive oil on top of the pizza and then place in a hot oven.

The best part of this easy pizza recipe is that you can alter it however you’d like. Feel free to change up the cheese and make a white pizza by adding ricotta with mozzarella and mushrooms instead of the red sauce. You can also add some of your other favorite pizza toppings like bell peppers, sweet onions, and cherry tomatoes if you’d like.
