Healthy Mushroom-Prosciutto Pizza Recipe

I love pizza! It has to be in my top 3 favorite foods. The diversity of flavors, and the possibilities are insane. The only problem with Pizza is the negative impact on your Health. Normally pizza is a heart attack, or acid reflux instigator. Normally I wouldn't let this stop me from indulging from time to time. With this recipe I can have delicious pizza even more frequently :)


  • Cooking spray
  • 8 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  • 1 (10-ounce) Italian cheese-flavored thin pizza crust (such as Boboli)
  • 2 ounces prosciutto, cut into thin strips
  • 1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) shredded fontina cheese


Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.


Step 2

Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add mushrooms and shallots to pan; sauté 7 minutes or until mushrooms are tender. Add garlic and thyme; sauté 1 minute. Stir in vinegar; remove from heat.


Step 3

Place crust on the bottom rack of oven. Bake at 450° for 4 minutes.


Step 4

Place the crust on a baking sheet. Spread mushroom mixture evenly over crust; sprinkle evenly with prosciutto and fontina cheese. Bake at 450° for 6 minutes or until cheese melts.


Step 5

Tips: For a crisp crust, bake the pizza crust on the lowest rack for a few minutes before adding the toppings. Presliced button mushrooms can substitute for the creminis.
