Easy Gourmet White Pizza Copycat. This pizza is SO GOOD! Made to be like the popular Mellow Mushroom Pizza favorite. Loaded with tomatoes, feta, and more. You’ll have to make it to believe it.
Everybody needs a good pizza recipe to keep in their back pocket and bring out on those lazy weeknights. I know I do. For me, this Easy Gourmet White Pizza is just that. It’s delicious, simple, and just the right amount of decadence. It’s a keeper. One of my favorite places to eat with friends when I lived in Jacksonville was Mellow Mushroom. It’s an awesome pizza place with a great vibe and even better ‘za as my dad calls it. It was such a great place to go with the girls and cat over a glass of wine and amazing cheesy pizza.
Pat and I went to Atlanta a couple weeks ago for a wedding and I saw a Mellow Mushroom from the road. I had to stop and have him try my favorite thing on the menu; their Gourmet White Pizza. Even better news came the next week when we heard they are opening up in STL! Yay! So now I can get my fix whenever I want to drive to Sunset Hills, OR when I want to make it at home. I think I’ve discovered the secret, and I’m pretty proud of it. I mean, do you see all that cheese? That’s four types of cheese. AND THAT’S MY TYPE OF PIZZA.
For the crust I used a pre-cooked naan pizza crust from Stonefire Flatbreads. This isn’t a sponsored post, but I do love love love Stonefire. I’m no baker (yet), so making a pizza crust from scratch is a bit of a tall order still. This crust is the right middle ground of thickness and has an amazing flavor. Since it was pre-cooked, I only had to cook this pizza for 6 minutes. That deserves a high five!I hope you love this Gourmet White Pizza Copycat as much as we do!
