An unexpectedly delicious combination of nutty Gruyère and tangy pickled mushrooms makes this simple pizza a knockout. Served with a green salad, it makes a quick vegetarian dinner for two.

  • 1 lb. pizza dough, at room temperature
  • All-purpose flour for rolling
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 1-1/2 cups Pickled Mushrooms with Garlic and Herbs, drained
  • 1-1/2 cups grated Gruyère
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Position a rack in the lowest part of the oven and heat the oven to 500°F.

Divide the pizza dough into two balls. On a lightly floured surface, roll one of the balls out to a 10-inch circle. Put the dough on a pizza pan or baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Bake until the dough is just beginning to color, 8 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop the mushrooms into bite-size pieces. Remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle half of the Gruyère, mushrooms, and parsley over the pizza, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Continue to bake until the edges of the pizza are brown and the cheese is thoroughly melted, 5 to 7 minutes.

Repeat with the other half of the dough and toppings.
