Dough Ingredients


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion thinly sliced
  • cup button mushrooms sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese grated
  • ½ cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • fresh thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 390 degrees F / 200 C.
  • Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, whisk until well combined.
  • Add the olive oil and water to the flour mixture, mix to form a dough.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for 2-3 minutes until dough is smooth.
  • Allow dough to rest for 10 minutes.
  • While the dough is resting, prepare the topping by heating the oil and sautéing the sliced onion until caramelized.
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and garlic, continue to cook until soft and fragrant.
  • Remove from heat and set aside. Drain any excess liquid before using.
  • Cut the dough in half to make two 8 inch round pizzas.
  • Roll each portion of dough to approx. ½ inch thickness in between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Remove the top sheet of paper.
  • In a small bowl mix both cheeses together.
  • Place dough onto pizza pans and divide the topping between each pizza base.
  • Sprinkle each pizza with fresh thyme and cheese.
  • Bake for 10-15 mins or until cooked through.
  • Cut each pizza into 8 pieces. Serve topped with a sprinkle of fresh thyme.


  • Dough can make either two 8 inch pizzas or one large pizza.
  • Don’t overwork the dough as this will create a tough pizza dough.
  • Allow dough to rest, covered on the work surface or in a bowl before rolling out.
  • 1:1 gluten free flour can be used instead of whole wheat flour for a gluten free option.
  • Top pizza bases with any of your favorite pizza toppings, the options are endless!
