In food processor, pulse mushrooms until coarse paste; set aside.

In skillet, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in mushroom paste; cook, stirring, until liquid is evaporated, about 15 minutes. Stir in parsley. (Make-ahead: Let cool; refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

On lightly floured surface, roll out dough into 14-inch (35 cm) round; centre on greased pizza pan. Spread with mushroom paste; sprinkle with thyme and Fontina cheese.

Bake in bottom third of 425°F (220°C) oven until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden and slightly puffed, about 20 minutes.
