This Recipe includes
|Puff-pastry dough – any type of puff-pastry pizza dough (pâte feuilletée)|
|Goat cheese – chopped goat cheese like bûche de chevre.|
|Mushrooms – fresh white button or cremini (brown), or button mushrooms, shitake, etc.|
|Olive oil – to lightly fry the mushrooms|
Accents for the sauce:
|Crème fraiche (Heavy cream) – this is the base of the white sauce.|
|Garlic – garlic powder or flakes|
|Onion powder – to flavor the sauce|
|Flour – is mixed in with the cream to avoid the pizza crust becoming too soggy.|
|Parsley – a couple of sprigs of fresh parsley for decoration|
|Salt and pepper|
- You can substitute the heavy cream with low-fat greek yogurt for a lighter version or sour cream for a vegan version.
- I like to add the goat cheese on top of the pizza partway through the cooking process, after the dough has partially risen, so that the cheese doesn’t burn.
Why we love it
For a light and healthy meal, this puff pastry pizza with mushrooms and goat cheese definitely packs a delicious punch.
If you are looking for a fun way to liven up dinner, this is it. Cooked in a white sauce, it gives a different combination of tastes than that traditional pepperoni and tomato sauce pizza.
In addition, the puff pastry used in the crust makes it flaky and buttery. The varying of ingredients provides a satisfying texture and flavor that pairs well with the earthy mushroom and tangy goat cheese toppings.
It is also relatively easy to prepare. The puff pastry dough is readily available in most grocery stores, and the other ingredients are also easy to find.
The pizza can be assembled in just a few minutes, and then baked in the oven until the crust is golden brown and the filling is hot and melted. This makes it a great option for a quick and easy meal that still feels special.
What to serve with it?
You can also serve can this puff pastry pizza with mushrooms and goat cheese as a healthy lunch or dinner with a salads such as a mixed green salad or a salad niçoise if you want something a little heartier.
How to store it?
You can make this puff pastry pizza with mushrooms and goat cheese up to a few hours in advance. Just put back in the oven or in the microwave before serving.
However, I would not recommend freezing it. Depending on the dough you use, the dough may get soggy and not taste good if it is not specifically meant to be frozen.
