The Mushroom, Spinach, and Halloumi Pie is an artisan pizza exploding with Greek flavors. It features naturally leavened sourdough pizza dough, fontina cheese, housemade stracciatella, spinach, a blend of mushrooms, and Halloumi cheese. This salt-brined cheese from Cyprus is known for its unique squeaky texture and salty, bold flavor. The pizza is finished with a flourish: Maldon sea salt, Greek extra virgin olive oil, a hint of lemon juice for brightness, and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. The combination results in a beautifully balanced and delicious pizza, with a crust that has developed a nice texture on the bottom.
