Lavash Pizza with Mushrooms and Cheese

Think you don't have time to make homemade pizza?  Try this one from my television series, Gets Fresh.  I used lavash bread as the crust and topped it with yummy mushrooms and cheeses.  So easy!!

Serves 8


Preheat an oven to 400̊ F. 

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.   Add the garlic and continue to cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute.  Add the mushrooms, thyme and sage and cook, stirring occasionally.  The mushrooms will give off their liquid.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms are soft, 7 to 8 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove them from the pan and cool.

Ten minutes before serving, place one sheet of the lavash on a baking sheet.  Repeat with a second sheet of lavash.  Bake the two pieces of lavash in the oven until the lavash is light golden.  Remove from the oven and spread one-quarter of the mushrooms onto the top of each lavash to ½-inch in from the edge.  Top each with one-quarter of the Montasio and one-quarter of the gorgonzola.  Bake in the oven until the edges are light golden color, the lavash is crisp and the cheese is melted, about  2 to 3 more minutes. 

Remove from the oven and sprinkle each with one-quarter of the chives.

Repeat with the remaining ingredients making 4 lavash pizzas total.
