Creme Fraiche and Mushroom White Pizza........
« on: May 16, 2015, 03:33:01 PM »
Started the creme  fraiche yesterday and put it under the halogen lights on the range hood. This morning very thick, added some parm and asiago, some salt and fresh cracked pepper and 2 microplaned cloves of garlic and into the fridge. Got a nice basket of baby bellas, sliced up and tossed with olive oil, s&p, and a little Italian seasoning spread out on a sheet pan doing a slow roast at 250° to dry them up and concentrate their flavor. Firing up the BS later this evening :drool:

Looks great...

Been making my own crème fraîche for years from a french culture I bought way back when.
So simple, and so cheap compared to buying it, just a cup creme and a spoonful of the tailings of my last batch.

It was a Garvey thin crust going with 54% vs 50% hydration. The creme fraiche marries with the cheese creating an ulra creamy, gooey, unctuous mix that is really fantastic. The mushoom taste also jumped out having roated them a bit first concentrating their flavor. The creme fraiche is equally good topped on a red/tomato based pie.
