mushroom and tomato pizza recipe



  • 1 onion
  • 3 ounces mixed mushrooms
  • 1 large ripe tomato
  • few springs fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 ounces crumbly goat cheese


1. Peel and chop the onion finely. Wipe, trim and slice the mushrooms. Peel, de-seed, and slice the tomato. Strip the thyme leaves from their stalks and finely chop. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and gently sauté the onion and mushrooms together until the onions are soft. Stir in the chopped thyme, salt, and pepper.

2. Prepare four small pizza bases (recipe below). Divide the mushroom mixture between the bases and top with the tomato slices and crumbled goat cheese. Bake according to the pizza base recipe.

3. A mixture of interesting mushrooms gives new interest and texture to this international favorite. Don’t overcook the mushrooms; remember they’ll be finished in the oven.
