White Pizza

In my opinion. white pizza beats tomato-based pizza every time. Unfortunately, I recall being served a white pizza that was so greasy that oil actually leaked out onto our plates. Ugh. I have a feeling they used the wrong cheese or just plain drenched the dough with olive oil. Who knows?

I admit that I made my own dough for this pizza. But I have used plenty of pre-made doughs, including organic ones that were very good. I'll leave that choice to you. I was leery about using ground turkey but it was delicious, maybe better than ground beef on pizza.

It seems to me that the key is not to overload the pizza with stuff. Give the cheese a chance to shine.

White Pizza with Ground Turkey

1 pizza dough
olive oil 
1/2 pound 93% lean ground turkey
1/4 cup thinly sliced onions
4 mushrooms, sliced
2 handfuls of fresh baby spinach, chopped
4 cloves of garlic
6-ounces finely shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 to 1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a pan, add ground turkey and cook, breaking it up, until there is no longer any pink meat.

In another pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and slowly saute the onions. When they begin to be translucent, add the mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are soft, add garlic and spinach. Cook until the spinach is wilted.

Prepare your pizza dough on a pan. Pour about 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on the dough and spread over the bottom. Scatter the turkey around the pizza. Scatter the onion mixture over the turkey. Salt to taste. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella, and then with the Parmesan.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.

Don't put too much stuff on the pizza.

First ground turkey, then veggies, then mozzarella and Parmesan.

Coming in November!


  1. Can't wait to color & read your upcoming release. I love pizza & this one sounds really good.

  2. Sounds delicious-but I'll skip the mushrooms!

  3. Fabulous!
    I have a hard time now succumbing to the "too much topping" problem.
