I really love making homemade pizza. It’s one of those kitchen tasks which sounds like it’s going to be a ridiculous amount of effort but is actually way easier than it looks.

And OMG it is so much better than shop bought pizza. The dough has tons more flavour and you can get the perfect balance of toppings which makes it perfect for you.

For this one I kept it really simple without a tomato sauce base. Instead I spread the base with crushed garlic cloves then I sprinkled it with thyme leaves and topped with a load of mushrooms and cheese.

Why we love this truffle mushroom pizza…

This recipe is so easy and uses just a handful of ingredients which means you can even make it on a weeknight if you’re feeling like you need a special treat.

It’s a great vegetarian meal that is just as good for a post-work meal as it is for serving up at a dinner party. It’s guaranteed to impress your guests!

Cooking it in the skillet helps to get the base really crisp and flavourful with a delicious chewiness.

You can add whatever ingredients you like to the top of this pizza. I love the simplicity of the mushrooms, cheese and truffle oil but if you’d like to add extra veggies or even meat then go for it!

Pizza with Truffled Mushrooms Ingredients

Pizza Dough: We use this pizza dough recipe whenever we make homemade pizza and it works perfectly as a skillet pizza like this. The linked recipe makes enough dough for two pizzas.

Toppings: I kept this recipe really simple with crushed garlic cloves, sliced mushrooms and thyme leaves and a good drizzle of truffle oil after cooking.

Cheese: For this pizza I went with mozzarella (because you can’t have a pizza without mozzarella) and taleggio which adds an amazingly layer of extra cheesiness but if you can’t get it replace with extra mozzarella and it will still be delicious!

Truffle Mushroom Skillet Pizza Instructions

Start the pizza: Roll out the pizza dough into two pizza bases. Heat the skillet until hot then place one of the pizza bases in it.

Add the toppings: Spread half the garlic, mushrooms, thyme, mozzarella and taleggio over the base. Lift the base slightly and once it’s browned place under the grill.

Grill: Grill for about 10-15 minutes until browned then drizzle with truffle oil and serve.

  • Heat the grill to high. Put the skillet over a high heat.
  • Once the skillet is hot roll out the first pizza base and place in the skillet. Spread with 2 cloves of garlic. Put half the mushrooms, thyme leaves, mozzarella and taleggio on the base spreading evenly. Carefully lift the base with a spatula and check that it's browned on the bottom.
