Anchovy Stuffed Olive and Mushroom Pizza



We love home made pizza, it’s quick and easy to make and costs considerably less than a takeaway or shop bought pizza.  We all like different toppings so by making our own pizza we can pick and choose what to put on.

Instead of the usual tomato base I decided to try Crème Fraiche mixed with a bit of garlic, I loved the creamy lemony taste this provided and it made a lovely change.


Small pot of Crème Fraiche

2 Cloves of Garlic crushed

Mixed dried herbs

Chestnut mushrooms


Anchovy stuffed olives

Olive Oil

Pizza Dough (I use this recipe here)


Make your pizza dough and put to one side.  Chop the mushrooms and fry in a little olive oil, while they are cooking stir the garlic into the Crème Fraiche.

Roll out your dough and place on a baking tray (I use my Tefal Ingenio pan) cover the base with a thin layer of your Crème Fraiche mixture and sprinkle with dried herbs, place a layer of mushrooms on to the base and scatter on some olives.  Top with ripped mozzarella and cook for around 10-12 mins until the base is cooked.

Baby Gourmand didn’t get to eat any of this as the anchovy inside the olives were a little salty.
