Chanterelles on pizza is always a good idea. In this recipe, I used, besides chanterelles, truffle oil, and good quality parmesan cheese. It is so recommendable! I mostly use chanterelles that I have foraged myself, but you can of course always buy them if they are available in stores or markets near you.
I always make the tomato sauce from scratch since I like the flavor way more, and it doesn’t even take up a lot of time. If you anyway, for some reason, don’t want to make the tomato sauce yourself, you can always use tomato sauce from a jar.
The chanterelle mushrooms used for this recipe were found in Sweden and they were so juicy and colorful since it had been raining a lot in the prior weeks.
Enjoy this wonderful chanterelle pizza and feel free to take a look around my website for more wild food recipes and foraging inspiration.
Chanterelle, truffle oil and parmesan pizza with homemade tomato sauce
- 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
- 200 grams (7 oz) chanterelles
- Mozzarella, shredded
- Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
- Truffle oil
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
