Morel Mushroom Pizza

This garlicy and creamy pizza is perfect with fresh morel mushrooms!
This vegan morel mushroom recipe is very simple and is one of the best ways to enjoy morels!

The creamy garlic sauce that is the base for the pizza helps counter the earthy and meaty flavors of the morel mushrooms. The morel mushrooms develop a lighter texture when roasted over this pizza- soaking in all the garlicy flavors!

How to Prepare Morel Mushrooms

To prepare morels you’ll need to clean them.
If you are using dried morels simply add warm water to a bowl over the mushrooms and let them soak for 20 minutes. From there you’ll rise the mushrooms until any dirt is removed.
If you are using fresh morels do a quick soak for 10 minutes in cool water. Rise them until all bugs and dirt are removed. The number of rinses you’ll need will vary depending on the freshness of your mushrooms and how dirty they are! It may take anywhere from 10-20 rinses before they will be clean.

Variations on the Morel Pizza

Morels stand out in this recipe where they are known for their light and delicate texture. Morels have an earthy flavor that is more subtle than a portabella or cremini mushroom. That being said, you could swap out the morels for other wild mushrooms like shaggy manes, hawks wing, or even oyster mushrooms.

Another variation on this pizza is to skip the steps on making a garlic cream sauce and instead use classic tomato pizza sauce.


In this ticktock video I made a morel pizza with classic pizza sauce, some premade pizza dough, plant-based cheese, and onion flowers as a garnish.
It was fantastic!

Ingredients

Creamy Garlic Pizza Sauce

Pizza Toppings

Instructions

Prepare Pizza Stone

  • Preheat oven to 450
  • Put pizza stone in oven for 45 minutes to preheat the stone. If you don’t have a pizza stone skip this step, but leave your oven on to preheat.

Clean/Soak Your Mushrooms

  • If using dried morel mushrooms rehydrate by adding warm water to a bowl with the mushrooms. Let them soak for 20 minutes, rise until clean.
    Place mushrooms on a towel to dry off
  • If using fresh morels place in a bowl and pour cool water over them. Let them soak for 10 minutes, then individually rinse off each mushroom. Look inside the crevasses to ensure you are removing all the dirt and potential bugs
    After they are cleaned place on a towel to dry off.

Sauce Preparation

  • Peel the garlic and shallot, then finely mince them

Cooking Creamy Garlic Sauce

  • Add the butter, garlic, and shallot to a sauce pan under medium high heat
    Cook for 5-7 minutes or until the shallot and garlic is golden brown is translucent
  • Add in the white wine vinegar to deglaze, then add in the soy milk and flour
    Stir and cook for 3-4 minutes until it starts to thicken, taste, add in desired salt* and the herbs
    Set aside

Pizza Assembly

  • Stretch the pizza dough out to fit your pizza stone or baking sheet- whichever you are using
    Add the sauce to the pizza dough, sprinkle on the mozzarella cheese
  • In a medium sized bowl add 1 tbs of olive oil to the morels, gently fold, mix to combine using a wide rubber spatula
    Sprinkle over 1 tsp of garlic powder over the oiled morels and stir to mix.
  • Add the seasoned morels to the cheese covered pizza, then add sundried tomatoes, lastly sprinkling over crumbled feta

Bake

  • If using a baking stone add dough to the preheated stone and cook for 12-18 minutes. Until the cheese is fully melted and the crust is golden brown
  • If using a baking sheet, line the pan with parchment paper. Place pizza on and bake for 18-25 minutes

Garnish

  • Garnish the pizza with fresh green onion and edible flowers*

Notes

Pizza Dough: 
You can either buy premade pizza dough from Whole Foods, Safeway, Trader Joes, ect or you can make your own!
Salt:
-The amount of salt you’ll need will depend on the butter you are using. If using salted butter consider skipping the extra salt, if using unsalted butter start with 1/4 tsp salt. Taste it to see if you want it saltier
-Consider using truffle salt here, the flavor of truffles pairs wonderfully with morels. A smoked salt would also be great here. 
Edible Flowers:
Scented geraniums, chive flowers, onion blossoms, snap dragons, chrysanthemums, and pansys are all great garnish options.
