  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add leek, thyme, salt and pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until the leek softens, 3 to 4 minutes. Add wine and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid evaporates, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Roll pizza dough out on a lightly floured surface to about the size of a large baking sheet, then transfer to a large baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1 cup cheese, layer on kohlrabi and top with the mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and crushed red pepper.
  4. Bake the pizza until the kohlrabi is tender and the crust is golden, 18 to 22 minutes.
  • Kohlrabi is a bulbous vegetable related to broccoli and Brussels sprouts, but has a milder, sweet flavor and great crunch. To prep, remove the stems (the leaves are edible) and peel the thick skin with a vegetable peeler or knife.
