Two words: Pizza. Party.
Today, I’m throwing a Pizza Party along with my fellow DaVinci Storytellers: Alana, Molly and Rebecca. A few weeks ago, I was describing the pizza-making competition that went down while in Vinci, Italy. In the spirit of that competition, we’ve all come together again to share a series of pizza recipes, utilizing the skills we learned while in Tuscany.
The pie that I’m bringing to the table is this Mushroom and Goat Cheese Pizza. Throughout our week in Italy, we had so many wonderful porcini mushroom dishes, and various types of goat cheese were also a staple item on the Tuscan table. With that inspiration in mind, I topped this pizza with wild mushrooms sautéed with garlic, mozzarella cheese, goat cheese, fresh rosemary, and a dusting of grated Parmesan. Finished with just the slightest drizzle of truffle oil that I purchased in San Miniato, the pizza is rich and earthy with a wonderful tang from the goat cheese. The aroma of white truffle escapes from the oil as it hits the bubbling hot cheese. Truly mouthwatering.
Below you’ll find the recipe for my Mushroom and Goat Cheese pizza along with links from the other Storytellers. I am also sharing a series of photos from my first few days in Vinci, Italy!
