Try out this delectable pizza delight with a mouthwatering Three-Cheese Pizza with Pancetta and Mushrooms! This extraordinary pizza is a celebration of flavors that will leave your taste buds craving for more. Combining the richness of three cheeses and the delightful combination of chopped pancetta and thinly sliced mushroom caps, this oozing masterpiece is the ultimate pizza night treat.

To create this culinary marvel, you’ll need the following ingredients: pizza dough, 1/2 cup of marinara sauce, 1 cup of coarsely grated Fontina cheese, 1/2 cup of finely grated Parmesan cheese, 1/3 cup of coarsely grated mozzarella cheese, 2 ounces of crimini (baby bella) mushrooms, thinly sliced, and 2 ounces of thinly sliced pancetta (Italian bacon), coarsely chopped.

Start by preheating your oven to 475°F and lining 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide the pizza dough in half and roll out each portion on a lightly floured surface, creating rectangles measuring 13 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. Carefully transfer the dough to the baking sheets.

Now comes the exciting part – the toppings! Spread 1/4 cup of marinara sauce over each pizza, ensuring to leave a 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle the three cheeses generously over the sauce, creating a luscious layer of gooey goodness. Next, add the flavorful mushrooms and the tantalizing pancetta, distributing them evenly across the pizzas. Season your creations with a pinch of salt and a generous amount of freshly ground pepper for an extra burst of taste.

Slide the pizzas into the preheated oven and let them bake until they turn a delectable golden brown on the bottom, and the cheese melts into a mouthwatering blend of flavors. This should take around 15 minutes. Once they’re perfectly baked, take them out of the oven and prepare to be amazed.

To serve, cut each pizza crosswise into tantalizing rectangles, ready to be devoured by pizza enthusiasts of all ages. Share this delightful feast with friends and family or enjoy it all to yourself; there’s no wrong way to savor the goodness of our Three-Cheese Pizza with Pancetta and Mushrooms. Embrace the pizza night indulgence and experience a taste sensation like never before!
