Transformed New York Pizza: I Love NY Veggie Pizza

Added to Recipes on Wed 09/21/2011

Ingredients

Makes 2 servings

1/2 lb refrigerated whole wheat pizza dough

Canned crushed tomatoes

1/4 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese

2 tbsp pecorino romano or parmigiano reggiano cheese

1 red or green bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 yellow onion, thinly sliced

2 cups baby spinach leaves

1 cup button mushrooms, sliced

Fresh basil for garnish

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Cornmeal for sprinkling

Flour for dusting

Olive oil for coating pan

 

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 450┬░F. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 12-inch circle, keeping the edges thicker to form a rim. Place the dough on a lightly oiled baking sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes, just until starting to lightly brown. Remove crust from oven and flip over.

 

Spoon crushed tomatoes evenly over crust and season with salt and pepper. Add your desired veggies, including peppers, onion, spinach and mushrooms. Top with mozzarella and pecorino romano cheeses. Bake until cheese is melted and veggies are tender to crisp, about 10-15 minutes.

 

Garnish with fresh basil, if desired.
