Japanese Fall Pizza

Fall is fast approaching, so I figured I would share my recipe for a pizza that uses Japanese autumn produce.

Japanese Fall Pizza

Japanese Fall Pizza
Makes 1 medium sized pizza

1 pound of pizza dough (refrigerated or homemade)
3-4 tablespoons peanut oil
1-2 tablespoons shichimi togarashi (Japanese 7 spice pepper)
4-8 ounces of mozzarella (depending on how much cheese you like)
1 large carrot, sliced into strips
1 Japanese sweet potato, sliced into thin circles
2 tablespoons of sliced chestnuts
6-8 shiitake mushroom caps

Preheat the oven according to your dough’s instructions (usually 350-375F). Saute the carrots and sweet potatoes until they are softened and slightly caramelized. Grill the shiitake caps in a grill pan, and then slice into strips. Mix together the shichimi togarashi and peanut oil to make a paste.

Stretch the pizza crust out to fit your pan or pizza stone. Rub the spice and oil paste over the dough, leaving a border for the crust. Cover with the mozzarella, and then sprinkle the vegetables and chestnuts evenly across the pizza.

Bake the pizza as directed in your dough recipe. I bake mine for 30 minutes at 375F.

Enjoy the taste of Japanese Fall!
