Ingredients

For the dough

  • cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp dry yeast
  • ½ cup water warm
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Toppings

  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups mushrooms cut into big pieces
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • black pepper or crushed red pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Prepare the dough: In a bowl combine whole wheat flour with dry yeast and salt. Add water and 2 tbsp olive oil and mix until you have a sticky dough.
  • Continue mixing for 4 more minutes and until you have a soft, elastic dough. Cover and let it rise for 1 hour. 
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Flour a baking pan and set aside. With the help of a rolling pin, roll the dough. Transfer to the prepared baking pan.
  • Top the flatbread with tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Then top with mozzarella cheese and mushrooms. Drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil. 
  • Put the flatbread in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the borders are golden brown and the cheese is fully melted. 
  • Remove from oven and top with pesto, fresh basil, and black pepper or crushed red pepper to taste. Cut into 8 slices.

Notes

Top Tips for Making the Best Mushroom Flatbread
  • Be sure to give the pizza dough enough time to rise.
  • Cover dough with a damp towel.
  • Dough will double in size when it's ready.
  • If you want to save time use a store bought pizza dough. I suggest Trader Joe's or Whole Foods' fresh whole wheat pizza dough.
  • If there's someone in your family that's not a fan of mushrooms, choose other healthy veggie toppings such as spinach, zucchini, broccoli, squash, tomatoes, or anything else you have in the fridge.
  • Make sure your oven is preheated before putting the pizza in the oven.
  • Feel free to change up the cheese on this pizza: parmesan, an Italian shredded cheese blend, or even goat cheese would all work well.
