Garlic, sweet fennel, caramelized mushrooms and a fresh pop of spinach make this pizza a favorite!


  • 1 pizza dough, homemade or store bought at room temp
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup crimini mushrooms, (sliced)
  • salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chicken stock or white wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • red pepper flakes
  • large handful chopped fresh spinach


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Heat a large pan over medium/high heat. Add one tablespoon of olive oil, shallot and fennel. Add a pinch of salt and cook for 7-10 minutes until fennel is soft. 
  2. Add mushrooms and cook for another 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds. Add the stock and scrape up any bits from the pan with a wooden spoon. Cook for another minute or two until liquid is gone. Remove from heat and set aside. 
  3. Grease a baking sheet and flatten out pizza dough. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle evenly with oregano. 
  4. Sprinkle cheese over dough and add the fennel mushroom mixture. Sprinkle on the spinach. Bake in the oven for 12-13 minutes until cheese is bubbly. 
  5. Remove and sprinkle red pepper flakes and a pinch of sea salt. Slice and serve!
