Here's the recipe:
I prefer to make my own sauce, but store bought it fine. Here's what I used for this pizza:
1/4 c tomato sauce
1.5 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning (if you don't have it mix together some of the following: oregano, thyme, marjoram, rosemary, and basil)
Crust (I prefer Boboli for ease, but also like Publix dough from the bakery)
1/3 c baby portobello mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/3 c kalamata olives, cut length wise in quarters
1/3 c red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 small tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp dried parsley (Fresh, if you have it. I love this stuff! Alternatively, you could use fresh basil.)
7-8 slices of mozzarella
Preheat oven to 450° (or whatever your crust/dough calls for). Combine ingredients for sauce and spread on crust, leaving 1/2" border. Place vegetables and cheese on top (the above list is exactly how I placed mine). Bake for 13 minutes (or whatever the directions for your crust/dough say).
I thought I would need to saute the mushrooms and onions for this to be really good and was going to try it the next time we make the pizza; however, the veggies cooked perfectly. I may try to make a thicker sauce next time by adding a small amount of tomato paste, but we'll see if I remember.
Here is the finished pizza:
Yum! If you try this and like it let me know and I may post my sloppy joe recipe. :-)
Remember to make this recipe, and any other, your own. I am a big believer in loving what you eat and savoring food and the company that comes with it. As Truett Cathy said, "Food is essential to life. Therefore, make it good." Enjoy!
