  • 1 ball pizza dough you can use this pizza dough recipe
  • 125 g mozzarella aka 1 ball fresh mozzarella
  • 100 g mushrooms baby bella (cremini) or button
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 20 g butter
  • black pepper freshly-cracked
  • salt to taste
  • fresh chives for garnish optional


  • Clean and slice the mushrooms into 1 mm slices. Peel and mince the garlic.
  • Melt the butter in a skillet on medium heat, add the minced garlic and sauté 30 seconds. Stir in the sliced mushrooms and sauté 3-4 minutes. Add a sprinkle of salt, stir to distribute and remove from the heat.
  • Stretch the pizza dough giving it a round shape and place it on a pizza peel dusted with semolina. Top pizza dough with grated mozzarella and sautéed mushrooms and garlic. Lastly dust with freshly-cracked black pepper.
  • Bake at 250°C (480°F) for 8-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the edges have a golden hue. Take out of the oven and garnish with fresh chives (optional).


  • Sautéing the main ingredients before adding them to the pizza creates a more harmonious flavour in the final product. Pre-cooking the mushrooms will prevent them from going dry. Raw garlic on pizza may come across as overwhelming. By lightly sautéing it with the mushrooms, its flavour is transferred to the mushrooms. 
  • Re-heat any leftovers in a skillet with a minimal amount of vegetable oil. Keep the pizza on medium heat and with the lid on. The oil on the bottom will account for a crispy bottom, while the lock traps moisture for a juicy topping. Keep an eye on it from time to time and lower the heat if needed to make sure the bottom doesn't burn.
