Wild Mushroom With Thyme Pizza

This wild mushroom with thyme pizza is flavoursome and pure perfection! It’s not your traditional red sauce pizza, oh no, it’s a lot more special than that! Here it’s covered with a tasty bechamel sauce, it is super quick to make, perfect for those days when you get home late and assembled with one of our top veggies, plus costs next to nothing to make!!

When it comes to pizza night, we like to keep things simple and make it easy for ourselves so pizza base is always bought, in fairness I’ve never made a pizza base from scratch, but I rather keep things simple for myself, plus when we make pizza at home we always get a gluten-free base, as I’m sure I have an intolerance to it.

We went for Wild Mushrooms for our pizza, a great selection from all over the world, plus I added a few chestnut ones in too for that extra nuttiness, with fresh thyme. 

Now, if you don’t know, we have an obsession with mushrooms in this house, if we could have them every day it certainly wouldn’t be an issue, one of our favourite ways to have them is roasted with polenta, another great rich and hearty weeknight meal for these dark nights we are having. Another great recipe which always goes down well with the kids  is my mushroom and lentil Bolognese, always a hit, trust me and they don’t even miss or ask for meat.

3tbs unsalted butter
3tbs all-purpose flour
* 1 cup (260ml of milk)
* 1 Tbs. chopped fresh oregano
* Salt 
* freshly ground pepper
* 250 grams of mixed wild mushrooms, such as chanterellesshiitakes or oyster and chestnut mushrooms, trimmed and sliced 
* A few springs of fresh thyme, chopped 

1. Kicking off, pre heat your oven to 210c
2. In a small saucepan set over a medium heat, you are going to make your b├ęchamel sauce. Melt your butter, then whisk in your flour add in your milk, oregano a pinch of salt and pepper and keep on whisking to make your sauce, when it covers the back of your spoon you know it’s done
3. Spread over your sauce on to your pizza base and a sprinkle over your chopped mushrooms and thyme
4. Place in the over for 10-12 minutes or until your pizza is crispy and golden 

Serve with salad, crisp white wine for you juice for the kids and thank me later.

Don’t you just wish every night was pizza night!? If you fancy a meat pizza, then i highly recommend you try my fig, mozzarella and prosciutto pizza, say goodbye to Domino's.
