Wild Mushroom and Crescenza Pizza

Crispy salumi, creamy cheese, earthy mushrooms, all on a homemade crust…hungry yet? This pizza recipe from Turntable Kitchen will soothe your craving. If you can’t find crescenza cheese, substitute burrata. 

There are a lot of reasons this pizza just works: the mushrooms and the crescenza are both delicate enough to not overpower each other. The tiniest addition of the red pepper flakes adds the gentlest heat. The parsley plays off of the earthiness of the mushrooms. The Parmesan adds a robust saltiness. The olive oil gives the pizza a fruity flavor. And the crust? Don’t even get me started on the crust. Fluffy and airy, it is the perfect canvas for the toppings. It’s Sunday night, but it’s never too early to start thinking about the next weekend. Don’t you agree?
