quick mushroom pizza – anytime! . . .

IMG_0401IMG_0414There are all kinds of ways to make pizza. There are electric pizza makers and books on how to make your own yeast pizza dough. We like pizza too and usually order a mushroom pizza with a thin crust from Papa Gino’s, just up the street.

A year ago or so, I saw some wraps at the grocery store and decided to try using them as the “crust” of a homemade pizza pie. Just heat your oven to 425 degrees. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and spray it with vegetable oil (Pam.) Use a pizza sauce of your choice – we like Ragu – and circle some sauce on the wrap, not too much, just to cover the surface of the wrap out to the edges.

Next comes a generous layer of thin grated fresh mozzarella cheese that I sprinkle on by hand. Fresh mushrooms are wiped clean or rinsed and cut into medium size slices. On top of the mushrooms, I hand grate parmesan cheese to cover the mushrooms.

When the oven is hot, place the pizza pie into the oven for about 18 minutes or so until the top is bubbling and golden brown. Take out the pizza and place it on a clean cutting board. Then, with a sharp knife, slice it into 6 pieces.

The entire process takes about 10 minutes to set up the pizza. It usually takes longer than that just for our oven to heat up to 425 degrees. We enjoy this for lunch a couple of times a week as a nice change from sandwiches or soup. Enjoy!
