Recipe Details


We're big fans of whole-wheat pizza, and it's not hard to see why. In this terrific Popular Recipe, the nutty whole-grain flavor is 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 (you'll be finishing the mushrooms on the pizza later, so they'll cook through completely then). Transfer to a medium bowl and set aside, reserving baking sheet for pizza. 

  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 Gruyère and half of mozzarella, leaving a ½-inch border. Add roasted mushrooms in a single layer. Sprinkle over remaining shredded cheeses and season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Bake pizza until crust is crisp and light golden and cheese is bubbling, 15-18 minutes.

  5. Make Vinaigrette

    Make Vinaigrette

    While pizza bakes, wipe bowl from mushrooms clean, then add Champagne vinegar, half of mustard, and half of honey and whisk to combine. 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 Whole-Wheat Pizza
