Mixed mushroom and mozzarella pizza
  • 1 long turkish bread, halved horizontally

Method

Mixed mushroom and mozzarella pizza
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Line an oven tray with foil.
  • 2
    Make caramelised onion: Heat butter and oil together in a large frying pan on medium. Sauté onion for 8-10 minutes until very tender. Stir in sugar and vinegar. Cook, stirring, for a further 8-10 minutes until caramelised. Season to taste.
  • 3
    Place Turkish bread halves on a large oven tray, cut-side up. Top evenly with caramelised onion and prosciutto.
  • 4
    Heat oil in a large frying pan on high. Sauté mushrooms and garlic for 5-6 minutes until tender. Spoon over each base.
  • 5
    Sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake 5-10 minutes until cheese melts and base is crisp. Cut each half into pieces. Serve topped with rocket.

Notes

Turkish bread makes preparing pizza an absolute breeze. If preferred use ready-made pizza bases, Lebanese bread or even shortcrust pastry. We used a combination of button, Swiss brown and Portobello mushrooms in this recipe.
