Mushroom and Kale Pizza with Truffle Oil
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 (2 1/4 teaspoon) package active dry yeast
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup bread flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal and flour (to dust counter) Toppings:
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup vegan mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 cup dinosaur kale, chopped
vegan Parmesan, to taste
1 cup cremini mushrooms, sliced
1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon white truffle oil
1. For crust, combine water, sugar, and active dry yeast in a bowl to activate yeast, and let sit for at least 5 minutes. In a mixer, add the dry ingredients and mix on a low setting using a bread hook.
2. When the yeast is ready, add it to the mixer with the olive oil. Mix the dough until it forms a uniform ball, and starts to climb the bread hook. If you do not have a mixer, then combine the dry ingredients with the bowl of yeast, and knead until smooth.
3. Remove dough, and let stand for about 45-50 minutes or until it doubles in size. Preheat the oven to 475°F. While dough is rising, saute onions over medium heat in olive oil until caramelized.
4. Stretch the dough to fit a round pizza baking pan. Lightly dust with cornmeal/flour to prevent the dough from sticking. Make the middle dough thinner in order for the outside dough to be thicker (for thicker crust).
5. Add about 1/2 the vegan mozzarella, the caramelized onions, kale, vegan Parmesan, then mushrooms. Top with the remaining mozzarella and drizzle with truffle oil (including over crust). Bake for 15 minutes.
