Mushrooms bring big bold, meaty flavors to homemade pizza; perfect for an easy and delicious family meal.

Servings: 6

Serving Size: 1 piece

Ingredients

1/2 quantity pizza dough
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
8 ounces fresh mushrooms – sliced
Salt/pepper
1 package fresh spinach – washed and torn into pieces
All-purpose flour – to dust surface
Cornmeal – to dust surfaces

Directions:

1. Have your pizza dough prepared and waiting.
2. Place pizza stone into cold oven. (Note: if you do not have a pizza stone, place a rimmed baking sheet upside down into cold oven). Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
3. Roll out pizza dough on a lightly floured surface to your desired thickness. Transfer dough to pizza peel (or baking sheet) that has been lightly dusted with cornmeal.
4. Drizzle pizza dough with approximately 1 tablespoon olive oil. Top with cheese and then mushrooms. Season with salt/pepper. Transfer pizza to pizza stone (or baking sheet) and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes OR until crust is crispy and cheese is bubbly.
5. Garnish with torn spinach as soon as it comes out of oven. Heat will slightly wilt spinach.
