Simplicity is key

The beauty of this recipe is how simple it is. Each different type of wild mushroom has their own unique flavor, and the minimal use of other toppings really lets those flavors shine through. I am lucky enough to live in an area where there is an abundance and great variety of species of wild mushrooms. I have made countless variations of this dish with different combinations of mushrooms. I am always excited when their are either chanterelles or porcinis available, and both of them together are amazing, but really any combination usually turns out pretty fantastic. The garlic, olive oil, parsley and Parmesan are just the right amount of flavor to compliment the various and complex flavors of the mushrooms themselves.

Variety of Ingredients

In the pizza pictured above, I used a blend of hedgehog mushrooms,golden chanterelles, oyster mushrooms, Zeller's boletes and birch boletes, all of which I foraged in the woods nearby. If you don't have access to wild mushrooms in your area or are inexperienced with foraging, During the rainy season there are usually a few good varieties available at some specialty markets. In this case I suggest seeing if they have oyster mushrooms, shiitakes, chanterelles, or porcinis. any combination of those will be excellent. As far as the dough, the toppings listed are enough for one pizza, and the dough recipe makes enough dough for two pizzas, so make sure to double the amount of mushrooms, Parmesan, garlic, and parsley if you want to make both pizzas for the same meal.
