- TOTAL TIME: 45 MIN
- SERVINGS: makes two 12-inch flatbreads
This easy grilled flatbread—topped with sautéed Delicious Flatbread Recipes
- 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing and drizzling
- 1/2 pound oyster and shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced (2 cups)
- 1 shallot, minced
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 cup dry white wine
- Freshly ground pepper
- Two 8-ounce balls of pizza dough, at room temperature
- 1 cup fresh ricotta cheese (8 ounces)
- 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped chervil
- 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped chives
- 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
- 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped tarragon
- In a medium skillet, heat the 1/4 cup of olive oil. Add the mushrooms and cook over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the shallot and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the wine and cook until evaporated, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
- Light a grill or preheat a grill pan and lightly oil a rimless baking sheet. On the baking sheet, stretch each ball of pizza dough out to a 12-inch round; brush with extra-virgin olive oil. Carefully slide the dough rounds onto the grill and cook over moderately high heat, shifting the rounds to prevent scorching, until lightly browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip the rounds and spread 1/2 cup of the fresh ricotta cheese over each one. Scatter the sautéed mushrooms and herbs over the flatbreads and grill until heated through, about 2 minutes.
- Transfer the flatbreads to a work surface, drizzle lightly with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cut into wedges and serve right away.
Make AheadThe cooked mushrooms can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Rewarm before using.
Earthy Spanish Tempranillos go brilliantly with mushrooms, like the ones on these smoky flatbreads.
