One of the benefits of living in the mushroom capital of the world is that every now & then the dude across the hall that hates mushrooms gives you a 10lb box that a client of his gave to him.  After distributing some to a couple other friends I hadda figure out how to cram the rest down my gullet before they went bad, & one good way was to saute a pile to top a standard deep dish.  My deep dish pies are pretty simple & not intended to be the Chicago variety.  Between this and a couple fritattas I am happy to say I've disposed of all the fungi.


first, 2 cups of flour, a pinch each of salt & yeast followed by 3/4 cups of water, knead for 15 minutes



leave in the bowl & cover until it doubles in size



here it is after a little more than 2 hours:



enough olive oil to coat the bottom nicely



lay the dough in



shower cap back on



meanwhile, slice up the shrooms




& fire up the egg







till done, at the end throw in some minced garlic, salt & pepper



remove the shower cap & get ready to top it



mozzarella & some dried herbs first, all the way to the edge with the cheese so some of it gets nice & dark during cooking:



scoop all the shrooms on



onto the egg which is preheated to about 400-450, don't forget some spacers under the pan



about 25 minutes later



bring it in & remove to a screen to cool, don't want to interfere with the crispy fried bottom



then to a tray for slicing



follow of course by, the slicing



let the lava flow



bottom shot, nice golden brown, crispy, & plenty of flavor from the olive oil



a final shot



Have a nice weekend all, Marc
