Ingredients

Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Asiago, Mozzarella or Parmesan can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Place pizza stone on lower rack in a cold oven. Heat oven to 500°F. Bake stone for 1 hour. Reduce heat to 475°F.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté mushrooms in olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes until crisp-tender. Reduce heat to medium. Add spinach, salt and pepper; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Set aside.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in flour until combined. Gradually stir in cream. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat to low; gradually stir in 1/4 cup parmesan until melted. Remove from the heat.
  4. Roll out pizza dough on lightly floured waxed paper to a 12-inch circle, about 1/4-inch thick. Dust pizza peel with cornmeal; transfer dough onto pizza peel. Spread Alfredo sauce on dough to within 1 inch of edges. Sprinkle with the mozzarella, asiago and remaining parmesan. Top with the sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and reserved mushroom mixture.
  5. Carefully transfer dough to a pizza stone. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Remove pizza from oven; transfer to cutting board. Cool slightly before cutting.

Cheesemonger Tip

Do you have questions when shopping for cheese? Ask the cheesemonger! A cheesemonger specializes in the buying and selling of high-quality cheese, usually available in the specialty section of a grocery store or cheese shop. Knowledgeable and passionate, a cheesemonger is a go-to resource for cheese varieties and pairings, proper cheese storage and handling, its cooking applications and cheese brand information.

In Wisconsin, cheesemakers age asiago to develop sharper flavors that resemble a cross between aged cheddar and parmesan.
