Bianca Mushroom Arugula Pie

If you love mushrooms and arugula , you will love this deliciously simple bianca mushroom arugula pie. It’s a great summer fun pie. Here’s how I made it.


16 oz dough
12 oz seasoned ricotta (pepper, salt, garlic)
6 oz mozzarella (thinly sliced)
4 medium sized fresh mushrooms (thinly sliced, baby portabella)
Hand full of baby arugula
2 oz white truffle oil.


Let’s start off with the dough. I used a sixteen ounce dough with 56 percent hydration (dough hydration is the ratio of water to high gluten flour, it is also known as baker’s percentage. This website explains it further).
The key to any good pizza is good dough and fresh ingredients, so high gluten flour is a must. Although it may be hard to find some in your local grocery store, there’s plenty of locations to find it online. Here’s a link. So now that you have your dough the next part is to stretch the dough and apply the ingredients.

For this recipe I will start off with ricotta cheese. I used about twelve ounces of seasoned ricotta. I seasoned it with some sea salt, fresh pepper and little bit of chopped garlic for those who like garlic. Then I liberally spread the ricotta over the dough. I also added some fresh sliced mozzarella, roughly six ounces worth, in thin pieces of about an eighth of an inch thick. Next you’ll want to top the pizza with fresh and thin sliced mushrooms of your choice, never used canned food. I personally prefer baby portobello mushrooms, but really any fresh mushroom will do. At this point I tossed the pizza into the oven, which baked at about 700 degrees. In about two to three minutes, when the crust is blistered and charred and the mozzarella has slight browning, you’ll want to pull the pie out. It’s time to lay it out and put some fresh baby arugula on it drizzle some white truffle oil. Add some fresh pepper and a sprinkle of parmesan.

Now it’s time to enjoy a fantastic summer pie. Love life and love the bianca mushroom arugula pie!

  • 5 star review  Incredible ovens! My family has always been searching for a great pizza oven for our backyards and all I can say is WOW! Let me start off by telling you that all of my family owns pizza shops and has for the last 35 years, so novices we are not. We were very excited to see what this little backyard oven could do. My god! Did a better pizza just come out of this oven then at my shop? Are you kidding me!!!!!!! My brother-in-law and I were floored! The crust developed perfectly and the toppings melted right into the sauce. We cooked up some red, green, and yellow bell peppers ahead of time in a cast iron pan in the oven before throwing them on the pie. Did I mention I’m not really a fan of peppers? But something magical happened in this oven between the Smokey wood and the heat turbulence in the dome of the oven I’m guessing. Or maybe it’s some magic at this point, I just can’t be sure. Anyways, now that I love peppers on my pizza I can stand here and say, this oven has got it all. Simplicity for the novice, and the seriousness of a modern pizza chef. I wish I would have gotten one sooner from you guys. Donald LeMay Stone Fired Piizza

Great quality oven at a reasonable price and the customer service is second to none. Even though it's not actually in the house I still consider it my very favorite kitchen tool. My neighbors love me! Stop thinking about it and buy one!!

  • 5 star review  Gave this as a Christmas gift. I asked for delivery on the day after Christmas and they made sure that they delivered even though they couldn't get a delivery service to delivery. They actually delivered it themselves. When I had some components that were missing, they hand delivered them on a Sunday. Cannot say enough about the great customer service. Love the pizza oven too. Fun to use and made great pizza!
