Polenta pizza with mushrooms

Polenta pizza with mushrooms by Mardi eatlivetravelwrite.com

I’m back! And back in the kitchen where I’ve created a fabulously simple gluten-free pizza using a polenta base topped with tomato purée, cheese and mushrooms. It’s inspired, in part, by a dish my friend Cathy whipped up in our little kitchen in the South of France last week using “bits and pieces” from our pantry and fridge (you know, when you get down to the last remaining food in a holiday house…). Her dish is adapted from Ottolenghi’s mushroom and herb polenta which is more of a cool weather dish (we made this on a day when there actually was a little chill in the air after two weeks of very high temperatures…) and it was delicious (also fabulous re-heated for breakfast the next day). As I watched her prepare this, I knew exactly what I wanted to create for my second guest post for Mushrooms Canada this year – mushroom pizza using a polenta base!

    Yum! I’ve never used polenta for anything other than, well, polenta. This sounds like a fantastic idea. I’ll be sure to go check out the recipe so I can give it a try.

    Looks delicious! And perfect for someone who doesn’t like to make pizza dough. I will definitely give it a try when the temps cool off a bit.

      It’s so easy and I always have polenta on hand so it’s the perfect last minute meal!
