Here’s a shortcut: layer mushrooms on raw, then drizzle with olive oil so they cook while the pizza crust bakes. You’ll get a vegetarian pizza on the table with time to spare. Makes 3 servings.
Ingredients: 12 oz pizza dough (enough for one 12-14” pizza), thawed at room temperature for about an hour 6 oz tomato sauce 8 oz mozzarella 8 oz crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced Basil, roughly chopped You probably have: Olive oil Chile flakes
Instructions: Step 1: Preheat oven to 500ºF, or its maximum temperature. Stretch and roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface until it’s about a 12-14” round, and lay it on an upside-down baking sheet or pizza stone. Step 2: Spread tomato sauce over pizza dough, leaving about an inch around the edge for the crust, then layer on sliced mushrooms and mozzarella. Drizzle with olive oil. Step 3: Bake pizza for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Top with freshly chopped basil and chile flakes (if you dare)!
