Treat your family to a meaty mushroom pizza that is simple and flavorful.

Yield: 24 servings

Serving size: 2 slices


  • 2 1/4 pounds white button mushrooms
  • 2 1/4 pounds cremini mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 (12-inch) fully baked whole-wheat pizza crusts or Flatout wrap
  • 3 pints part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


1. Heat oven to 425˚F.

2. Chop mushrooms into ¼-inch pieces.

3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and mushrooms and cook, breaking meat beef into very small bits. Season with freshly ground black pepper.

4. Arrange crusts on 3 baking sheets.  For each pizza, spread crust with one cup of ricotta and sprinkle with three tablespoons Parmesan. Spoon beef and mushroom mixture evenly over all. Top each pizza with 1 cup of Jack cheese.

5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.   Cut each pizza into 8 wedges.

Tip: Use 1/2 cup cottage cheese blended with 1 tablespoon of milk in blender or food processor for a suitable substitute for ricotta cheese. Garnish with basil for extra flavor.
