Israeli-born British chef Yotam Ottolenghi’s recipes are famed for utilizing a mix of on a regular basis and distinctive substances to realize flavor-packed, tantalizing dishes that simply so occur to be vegetable-centric. His mushroom “ragu” is not any exception,  mixing contemporary and dried mushrooms with carrots, tomatoes, and a concoction of marinades to create one thing that’s inexplicably meaty — with none meat in any respect. 

We’ve taken direct inspiration from the Mushroom Ragu recipe in his ebook Ottolenghi Taste: A Cookbook and tailored it for cooking in your Ooni pizza oven. Not solely does it make a scrumptious pasta sauce, it builds a standout base for a hearty ragu pizza. Add cream and arugula as toppings, and also you’ve bought a balanced pizza that’s nice for fast weeknight dinners but additionally spectacular for a weekend date evening. It’s a bonus that the pizza is solely plant-based, however when you’d choose a little bit of dairy, full-fat cream and grated pecorino romano will work rather than the vegetarian cream we’ve steered beneath.

Notes: This recipe makes sufficient sauce for 4 pizzas, however you’ll be able to reserve something left over to be used in pasta or rice dishes. We used plant-based cream to prime this vegan pizza; nonetheless, you’ll be able to select a full milk cream when you choose.
