How to make Marvelous Mushroom Pizza

I have never made just a “mushroom” pizza before, just mushrooms.  Not other toppings that crowd them out.  They make a nice garlicky taste just on their own, adding a bit of cheese (well a lot of cheese) and start with the best pizza dough recipe.  That’s how to make marvelous mushroom pizza.  

I’ve been making a lot of pizza’s lately and have had fun trying new topping combo’s that I haven’t had before;  Chicken Bacon Pesto Calzone; Shrimp Scampi Flatbread, and Jalapeño Popper Pizza, just to name a few.  As I’ve said, I could probably have some kind of pizza or flatbread almost everyday.  Sometimes a couple of pieces of a small flatbread is enough to give you a fun taste, but not overfill you with carbs.  Well, let me introduce to to Marvelous Mushroom Pizza (kind of sounds like Billy Crystal back in 1985 with “you look marvelous”) 


  • Best pizza dough (about 1/2 recipe…put the rest in the fridge)
  • I large package of sliced Crimini Mushrooms (about 16oz) These are just the white mushrooms that most stores carry.  You are welcome to use other kinds as well.  
  • 2 Cups of Mozzarella cheese (I buy it block style and shred it myself; it melts better)
  • 1/4 Cup butter
  • 8 garlic pieces, peeled and smashed.  You could use diced garlic from a jar; about 2 tsp
  • 1/3 Cup of Ricotta Cheese
  • 1/3 Cup of Alfredo Sauce or other white garlic sauce
  • Pizza Stone or Pizza Pan
  • Parchment Paper (if using a pizza stone)


  • Preheat oven to 550° if using a pizza stone or 430° if using a pizza pan
  • Make a batch of the best pizza dough
  • Sauté mushrooms with lots of garlic and butter in a large frypan
  • Roll pizza dough on parchment paper or on lightly oiled countertop and transfer it to pizza pan or parchment paper (if using a stone)
  • Spread Alfredo sauce and ricotta cheese over the dough.  You can mix it while you spread or mix in a small bowl and spread after.
  • Sprinkle shredded Mozzarella cheese over the sauce
  • Place sautéed mushrooms over the cheese.  You will want to do this a little at a time to get good coverage.
  •  Slide into the oven.  Bake for 8-10 minutes if using a pizza stone and 18-20 minutes if using a pizza pan.  Use your own preference for whether your pizza is done.  I like the crust crisper and sometimes will stick the pizza back in the oven to crisp up after I take a first piece.
