MUSHROOM GOAT CHEESE DELICATA SQUASH WOOD FIRED PIZZA

INGREDIENTS

1/2 pound pizza dough

2 tablespoons olive oil

8 ounces mixed mushrooms halved if large

kosher salt and pepper

1 tablespoon butter

2 cloves garlic minced or grated

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1/2 inch of a delicata squash seeded and thinly sliced (about 1/8 thick)

4 ounces truffled or regular goat cheese

1/2 cup grated fontina cheese

1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme

flaky sea salt and black pepper

truffle oil for serving (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 550 degrees F. 

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened, 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the butter and garlic, cook 30 second until fragrant. Add the balsamic and continue cooking 1 minute more or until the balsamic glazes the mushrooms.

On a lightly floured surface, push/roll the dough out until it is very thin. 

Layer the squash rounds in and even layer. Add the mushrooms. Sprinkle over the cheese. Finish with a sprinkle of fresh thyme and salt. Transfer to the oven and bake 4-6 minutes or until the crust is golden, the cheese has melted. Remove the pizza from the oven. Slice and serve!
