Recipe Details


News just in: We’re big fans of whole-wheat pizza. In this terrific seasonal dish, the nutty whole-grain flavor is the the perfect match for heaps of earthy mushrooms and not one, but three types of cheese. Gooey Gruyère, mozzarella, and creamy ricotta add a hit of decadence to this fabulous meal, which is finished with a zingy arugula salad on top. Not that we needed another reason to love pizza, but here it is.

Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 425°F. Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp paper towel and roughly chop. Mince garlic. Rinse arugula

  2. Roast Mushrooms

    Roast Mushrooms

    On a baking sheet, toss mushrooms with 1 tablespoon olive oil, ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Arrange in a single layer and roast until almost tender, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside. 

  3. Roll Out Dough

    Roll Out Dough

    While mushrooms roast, sprinkle flour onto a clean dry surface. Using a rolling pin or the heels of your hands, roll and stretch pizza dough into a rectangular shape, about ¼-inch thick. Once mushrooms are roasted, line baking sheet from mushrooms with parchment paper. Rub 1 teaspoon olive oil on parchment and carefully add pizza dough on top. 

  4. Assemble and Bake Pizza

    Assemble and Bake Pizza

    Rub garlic and 1 tablespoon olive oil on top of pizza dough. Sprinkle over half of cheese mix, leaving a ½-inch border. Add roasted mushrooms in a single layer. Sprinkle over remaining cheese mix and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Bake pizza until crust is crisp and light golden and cheese is bubbling, 12-15 minutes.

  5. Make Vinaigrette

    Make Vinaigrette

    While pizza bakes, in a medium bowl, whisk together Champagne vinegar, half of mustard, and half of honey. Whisking continuously, slowly add 1 tablespoon olive oil until fully combined. Season with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Discard remaining mustard and honey packets or save for another use. 

  6. Plate Pizza

    Dot ricotta over pizza, scatter over arugula, and drizzle with a spoonful of vinaigrette. Cut into slices, skip the utensils, and enjoy with remaining vinaigrette for dipping.
