Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup whole milk

  • 1/4 teaspoon plus a pinch salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 3 to 4 heads Roasted Garlic

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons yellow cornmeal, for sprinkling on baker's peel

  • 1 recipe Basic Pizza Dough with Parmesan variation, recipe follows

  • 6 ounces grated mozzarella

  • 2 ounces thinly sliced cremini mushrooms, sautéed until wilted

  • 4 ounces grated fontina

  • 1 ounce grated Parmesan

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions

In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, melt butter. When foam subsides, add flour and stir until smooth. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring. Do not allow flour to color. Gradually add the milk, whisking to combine. Squeeze in the cloves from one head of the garlic. Add the salt and cayenne and decrease the heat to medium. Cook the mixture, whisking continuously, until the sauce comes to a boil and is thickened. Pour the hot mixture into a blender, cover tightly, and process until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and cool slightly, placing a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface. Place a pizza stone in the oven and preheat to 500° F. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons of the yellow cornmeal on a baker's peel or baking sheet. Place the rolled out pizza dough circle on the prepared baker's peel or baking sheet. Spread the cooled sauce over pizza dough, leaving a 3/4-inch border. Place the grated mozzarella on top of the sauce. Sprinkle the remaining roasted garlic cloves (whole) over the cheese along with the sliced mushrooms. Top with the grated fontina and Parmesan. Bake the pizza for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden and cheese is melted and bubbly and golden brown in spots. Remove from the oven and sprinkle chopped herbs over the top. Serve immediately.
