Step By Step  

It’s Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest time – a perfect time to revisit contest entries of the past, like this delish Ham, Swiss and Mushroom Pizza recipe!

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

One of my favorite things to do is to try the top recipes from the Bake-Off competitions. The palettes of the elite are taste-testing the recipes, and that can only mean that some seriously good food makes the finals.

This Ham, Swiss and Mushroom Pizza from a past Bake-Off Contest caught my eye. My first reaction when reading the ingredients was “um…weird,” but I decided to give it a try because I rarely meet a pizza I don’t like.

Slice of Ham, Swiss and Mushroom Pizza

The “sauce” for this pizza is made from mayo, mustard, poppy seeds, and a dash of horseradish. Sounds strange, right? Just believe that after my first bite of the pizza, I immediately begin brainstorming what other food I could slather this sauce on.

Pizza Sauce

My initial worry was that the toppings would scare my kids off. They are die hard cheese pizza fans, and any variance from that ends in a dissection of the pizza to get back to a plain cheese base.

Pizza Toppings

So I did what I normally do when I’m worried my kids won’t like what I’m cooking -- I got them involved in the cooking process! Here they are sprinkling on the toppings and a boat load of cheese.

Cheese Topping on Pizza

In the end, I can’t imagine the pizza with any more or less toppings. The combination of flavors is perfect and my kids begged for more!
