Chanterelle Pizza with Homemade Tomato Sauce, Truffle Oil, and Parmesan Cheese

chanterelle pizza

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.

  • 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 200 grams (1 1/3 cup) all-purpose flour

  • 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


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.
