Cremini, Gorgonzola and Gruyere Pizza

There’s nothing quite as fun in the kitchen as stretching, throwing, flouring, and topping a homemade pizza – it’s an activity that kids and adults alike can get around. Making the dough from scratch will undoubtedly make you feel more accomplished, but buying a ball of dough from your local pizzeria is a great shortcut if you’re in a rush or don’t have the patience.

There are endless gourmet topping choices when it comes to pizza. However, we have chosen a simple vegetarian version to allow the earthy Italian flavors to shine. In addition, mushrooms are delicious and packed with enriching health benefits – so what better reason to treat yourself to a pizza? 

Mushrooms offer a healthy dose of minerals and vitamins, including magnesium, copper, potassium, zinc, and various B vitamins. Plus, they’re rich in antioxidants and low in calories! Paired with our kyoord High-phenolic Olive Oil this recipe is as great for your health as your soul. So don’t forget to top your pizza with olive oil when it comes fresh from the oven! Whether it’s date night or Friday evening with the kids, this pizza recipe is bound to create some delicious memories in the kitchen. 

Cremini, Gorgonzola and Gruyere Pizza


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil + more for drizzle
  • Four cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ teaspoon fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • ¼ cup cornmeal
  • One homemade or pre-purchased classic pizza crust
  • 1 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup gorgonzola cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ½ brown onion, sliced

Method of Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Add the garlic to a cold pan, add olive oil, and heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Stir in mushrooms, thyme, and oregano. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are tender and browned, about 5-6 minutes; season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Working on a surface sprinkled with cornmeal, roll the pizza into a 12-inch-diameter round. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet or pizza pan.
  5. Top with the cooked mushrooms, and sprinkle all the cheese.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cheese bubbles and the dough crisps.
  7. Drizzle olive oil over the pizza, and enjoy!
