Do you need inspiration for a rich and flavorful pizza that is really easy to make? Then you have come to the right place. This chanterelle, truffle oil, and parmesan pizza is so tasty and packed with flavors that it will make you want to go out in the forest immediately and try to forage chanterelles. In this recipe, I used Swedish foraged chanterelles that we (me and my family), picked at a really perfect time. They were so juicy and colorful since it had been raining a lot in the prior weeks. That also meant that we found so many chanterelles and other mushrooms, so I had to cook and develop a bunch of different recipes with one of my favorite mushrooms, the chanterelle.

Ingredients
  

Dough

  • 2.5 deciliter (1 cup) lukewarm water
  • 0.5 teaspoon sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon yeast, dried
  • 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 200 grams (1 1/3 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 200 grams (1 1/3 cup) durum flour

Topping

  • 200 grams (7 oz) chanterelles
  • Mozzarella, shredded
  • Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • Truffle oil

Tomato sauce

  • 250 grams (9 oz) fresh tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 10 basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons oregano, dried
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Instructions

The dough

  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix water, sugar, and dried yeast and stir thoroughly until the yeast has dissolved. Wait for the yeast to be activated (bubbles) for about 10 minutes.
  • Add salt and olive oil.
  • Add all-purpose flour and durum flour a little at a time while stirring. You can also use your kitchen machine if it has a dough hook.
  • Knead the dough well.
  • Leave to rise for 2 hours covered in a kitchen towel.
  • Pour a bit of flour onto the kitchen table and divide the dough into 2. Gently, press out the dough using your fingers. Do not use a rolling pin since all the air in the dough will disappear.

Tomato sauce

  • Blend all ingredients in a blender.
  • Remove if necessary, a little of the liquid so that the sauce is not too watery.

Make the pizza

  • Spread out the tomato sauce in a thin layer onto the pizza. Afterward, add shredded mozzarella cheese and the chanterelles.
  • Bake at the bottom of the oven at the highest possible degrees for approx. 8-12 minutes depending on the heat of the oven. The pizza is ready when the bottom is golden brown.
  • Serve the pizza with freshly grated parmesan and drizzle with truffle oil.
