Wild Mushroom Pizza with Arugula & Pecorino
Place a pizza stone or large rimless baking sheet on the bottom rack and preheat oven to the highest temperature, preferably 500 degrees F, for 30 minutes.Advertisement
Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Roll dough on a floured surface into a 14-inch circle. Transfer to a floured pizza peel (or rimless baking sheet). Scatter garlic over the dough then sprinkle with mozzarella and half of the mushrooms (reserve the remaining mushrooms for Step 5). Drizzle the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over the pizza.
Carefully slide the pizza onto the preheated pizza stone or baking sheet. Bake until browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into 4 pieces.
Toss arugula with agrumato lemon oil and salt. Top the pizza with the arugula, the reserved mushrooms and cheese. Serve immediately.
This pizza gets a zesty drizzle of agrumato lemon oil, which is created when olives are pressed together with lemons. The resulting extra-virgin olive oil has an exceptionally bright lemony flavor. It's worth seeking out at gourmet markets or well-stocked natural-foods stores. If you can't find it, substitute 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil and 1 teaspoon lemon zest.
