Crispbread Pizza With Bacon & Mushroom

Autumn in Scandinavia means foraging - for berries, fruits and mushrooms - so seasonal dishes often centre, or include, around these ingredients. Mushrooms are a favourite - especially the more elusive girolles (chantarelles). The following recipe is adapted for supermarket foraging - but feel free to use any mushroom you like.
