Shiitake Mushroom and Gorgonzola Pizza

The robust flavor of blue cheese underscores the earthiness of the mushrooms on this delectable pizza. Gorgonzola has a pronounced flavor, but any blue cheese will work nicely.

Cooking Light AUGUST 2001

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 wedges)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 recipe Pizza Dough
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced button mushrooms
  • 1 1/3 cups thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 cup vertically sliced red onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup (3 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola or other blue cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°.

Roll the dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place the dough on a 12-inch pizza pan or a baking sheet coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with cornmeal. Crimp the edges of the dough with your fingers to form a rim.

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion; sauté for 5 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 3 minutes or until the onion is very tender. Stir in the salt and pepper.

Spread the sour cream over pizza crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with mushroom mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cut into 8 wedges.
