How To Make Morel Pizza

Up your pizza game by serving morel pizza! This dish is topped with morel mushrooms, cheese, and asparagus, making for a satisfying meal.

Prep: 1 hr 30 mins
Cook: 12 mins
Total: 1 hr 42 mins


  • active dry yeast, (1 package)
  • 1 1⁄4 cup warm water
  • 2 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1⁄2 cup semolina flour
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 10 oz morel mushrooms, cleaned and sliced 1/2-inch thick
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1⁄2 cup shallots, sliced
  • 1⁄4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme, snipped
  • 8 oz thin asparagus, cleaned, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 8 oz Gruyere cheese, shredded (2 cups)
  • cornmeal
  • olive oil
  • cracked black pepper


  1. In a large bowl combine yeast and water. Let stand until yeast is dissolved; about 5 minutes.
  2. Add 2 cups all-purpose flour, semolina flour, 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt and sugar. Mix by hand or on low speed of an electric mixer until well-combined.

  3. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining all-purpose flour for 6 to 8 minutes or until a smooth elastic dough is formed.

  4. Transfer dough to a bowl lightly coated with additional olive oil, turning to coat all sides. Cover and let rise in a warm place until about doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

  5. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high cook and stir mushrooms in hot butter for 2 to 3 minutes until mushrooms just begin to soften. Add shallots, wine and thyme.

  6. Cook and stir for 4 to 6 minutes or until shallots are tender. Add asparagus; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  7. Preheat oven to 475°F. Grease and dust 2 extra-large baking sheets with cornmeal. Punch dough down and divide dough in half.

  8. On a lightly floured surface roll out one portion of the dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Transfer to one prepared baking sheet.

  9. Brush lightly with additional olive oil. Top with half the mushroom mixture and half the cheese; season to taste with pepper.

  10. Bake in oven on theowest rack about 12 minutes until crispy and brown. While first pizza is baking, repeat with remaining dough and toppings.
