Mushroom Pizza




My local grocery store now has whole grain pizza dough! I'm so excited! I love making pizza at home where I can control the ingredients. With my pizza stone and my pizza peel, it makes it that much easier. 

You can make this with any combination of toppings you want.

Ingredients:


  • 2 8-oz packages sliced mushrooms (I like baby bellas or Shiitake)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 lb ball whole grain pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 2 cups reduced fat mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thinly

Directions: 


  1. Place your pizza stone Click here! on the bottom rack of a cold oven which prevents cracking. 
  2. Preheat the oven to 450℉ and line a baking sheet with foil. 
  3. Place the mushrooms on the baking sheet with the olive oil, salt and chili flakes. 
  4. Toss until evenly coated. 
  5. Roast for 10 to 12 minutes and then set aside. 
  6. Sprinkle corn meal or flour on a pizza peel Click Here! or a piece of parchment paper. Stretch out the dough until you get a nice round circle. I actually split mine in two and made two individual pizzas.
  7. Spread marinara sauce over the center of the dough, leaving a 1 inch border for the crust. Sprinkle with cheese then mushrooms. 
  8. Transfer pizza to the stone in the oven (or an oiled baking sheet) and bake until cheese is bubbly, about 12 to 14 minutes. 
  9. The other pizza I used my black bean spread Click here for Black Bean Recipe.
  10. Topped it with spinach, some reduced fat mozzarella cheese and red onion.
