Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing and drizzling
  • 1/2 pound (2 cups) oyster and shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 balls of pizza dough, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) fresh ricotta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chervil, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chives, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tarragon, coarsely chopped

How to Make It

  1. In a medium skillet, heat the 1/4 cup of olive oil. Add the mushrooms and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the shallot and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and cook until evaporated, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan and lightly oil a rimless baking sheet. On the baking sheet, stretch each ball of pizza dough out to a 12-inch round; brush with extra-virgin olive oil. Carefully slide the dough rounds onto the grill and cook over moderately high heat, shifting the rounds to prevent scorching, until lightly browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip the rounds and spread 1/2 cup of the fresh ricotta cheese over each one. Scatter the sautéed mushrooms and herbs over the flatbreads and grill until heated through, about 2 minutes.

  3. Transfer the flatbreads to a work surface, drizzle lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cut into wedges and serve right away.
