PIZZA

I am no food blogger and definitely not some sort of health genius or dietician. While I am none of those things I thought that today I would share an awesome recipe that I recently came up with. I love me a good slice of pie and one of my favorite restaurants is Old Scratch, a local pizza place. My most favorite pizza there is the Shroom. It is truffly, mushroom love on a plate. Since I can’t always just run out and get pizza from Old Scratch, I went ahead and tried to recreate the Shroom on my own. Even if you don’t like mushrooms, I urge you to try this recipe because I didn’t like mushrooms until I had this pizza and now I eat them on everything.

So here we go, my attempt at recreating the Shroom from Old Scratch.

For my version you will need Trader Joe’s cauliflower pizza crust and bake according to the instructs. If you have no Trader Joe’s near you, you can try any type of crust you want; homemade or store-bought.

While your crust is being prepared you are going to cut up about 3/4 cup of mushrooms and 2 cloves of garlic. Once this is done you will mix your mushrooms and garlic up with about a teaspoon of olive oil and pop it in the oven. You will occasionally stir up your mushroom mixture whilst in the oven for a period of five minutes, to get them lightly cooked.

Now that your mushrooms are done, you can put them aside and then grate about one cup of mozzarella cheese. Again you can vary the amount of cheese depending on what you like, none of the measurements need to be dead on for a tasty product.

Now your crust is baked according to the instructions and you are going to spread 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil as your sauce. Following that you spread your cheese, mushroom/garlic mix, and a teaspoon of thyme all over. The final touch is a drizzle of about 1 tablespoon of white truffle oil.

The final step, broil until the cheese is lightly browned!
