Recipe: Quite possibly the healthiest pizza in the world except for all the cream and cheese

4 Mar

Pizza night!  We had a lot of greens building up so I wilted a bunch of them and put them on top of pizza – that’s the healthy part.  The base of the pizza is mushrooms in cream sauce, not so healthy, but I think the greens make it OK.

Ingredients for the mushroom sauce

  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • 1 container of mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • some heavy cream
  • butter

Melt some butter in  a large saucepan and saute shallots until softened.  Add the mushrooms and some more butter and gently saute until the mushrooms give up their liquor and the water evaporates – but don’t get the mushrooms too brown.  Add some cream and heat until it bubbles, turn on the heat and set aside.

Ingredients for the greens

  • 1 bunch dandelion greens, cleaned and chopped
  • 1 bunch beet greens, cleaned and chopped
  • 2 bunches mustard greens, cleaned and chopped
  • 1 stalk green garlic, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped

Saute the garlic in some olive oil in a large pot until softened.  Add the greens in bunches, adding more as they wilt.  Add some S&P and red pepper flakes to taste.

To assemble the pizza

Stretch out the dough on a pan and spoon the creamy mushrooms over the dough.  Top with a light scattering of cheese, then top with the greens.  Top with a little more cheese and cook as directed.  Yum!
