Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Cut parchment paper to fit a 9˝ x 12˝ (23 x 30 cm) baking sheet.

Using a rolling pin, roll out pizza dough on the parchment paper. Transfer to baking sheet and let rise for 30–45 minutes.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat and cook leeks and mushrooms for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

In a mini food processor, grind dried mushrooms until fine and powdery.

Sprinkle pizza dough with a quarter of grated cheese, add leek and mushroom mixture and top with remaining cheese and dried mushroom powder. 

Cook on top rack of the oven for 12 minutes.

Milk pizza dough

In a small saucepan, heat milk over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add butter and let melt.

In a bowl, mix flour with sugar, salt and yeast.
