Instructions

Chili Oil

  • Put olive oil in a microwave safe container and zap for 30 seconds. Add chili flake and zest to the oil, stir and let sit for 15 minutes. Set aside until ready to use.

Roasted Broccolini

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Trim the ends and slice the broccolini into 2-3 inch pieces. Place on a lined baking sheet. Toss with chili oil, salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes or until lightly charred and tender. Set aside to cool.

Mushrooms

  • In a small pot heat the butter and oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and salt and pepper. Cook until tender. Set aside to cool.

Black Garlic Cream

  • Smash garlic cloves into a paste. Add the paste to a small pot and whisk in the cream. Reduce the cream by 1/2 over medium low- low heat. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool.

Pizza

  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Have your pizza stone or steel in oven. Cut 3 pieces of parchment paper and place one on the back side of a baking pan or pizza peel. On a floured surface, form the dough into a 10-12 inch round and place on the parchment paper. Reshape if necessary.
  • Drizzle 3 tablespoons of cream on the dough and spread out with the back of a spoon. Cover the cream with 3/4 cup of cheese. Scatter broccolini, mushrooms, sausage, and onions over the cheese. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese over the toppings. Remove the stone or steel from the oven. Slide the pizza with the parchment onto the stone and place back into the oven. Cook for 8 minutes or until browned. Remove from the oven with parchment paper. Cut into 8 pieces. Drizzle the chili oil over the entire pizza and serve. Repeat the process to make the other two pizzas. Give the stone 5-10 minutes to reheat before cooking the next pizza.
