White pizza is the kind of thing that feels totally restaurant-fancy, but is actually quite easy to make at home. To make the base, simply stir together ricotta and shredded mozzarella with garlic and oil. Top with sautéed mushrooms and you’ve got something worthy of date night at home. This pizza is cooked grandma-style, stretched out into one family-style serving on a baking sheet. Serve with an arugula or romaine salad on the side.
1 pound store-bought pizza dough, at room temperature
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 pound mixed mushrooms, sliced
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
½ cup whole-milk ricotta
4 ounces (1 cup) shredded low-moisture mozzarella
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450ºF with rack in lowest position. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, stretch out dough to a 16-by-10-inch rectangle. Bake until lightly golden, about 7 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in parsley and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
Stir together ricotta, mozzarella, garlic, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl. Spread over prebaked crust, leaving a 1-inch border. Arrange mushroom mixture on top.
Bake until golden, about 12 minutes. Cut into slices and serve.
