Pizza Dough (page 3) 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 3-4 white or cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced One 4-ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained well and cut into slices 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic Salt and freshly ground black pepper ½ cup pizza sauce ¼ teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes 6 ounces fresh mozzarella, grated 4 ounces pepperoni, thinly sliced
Place a skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil when pan gets hot. Add the mushrooms and cook them, stirring regularly, until they soften, about 7 minutes. Add the roasted peppers and garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Season with salt and pepper to taste and transfer to a bowl. On a lightly floured surface, roll out pizza dough using a rolling pin or your hands. Sprinkle a light dusting of cornmeal on the pizza peel and carefully place dough on top. Spoon a layer of sauce over the dough. Add the cheese, the mushroom mixture, then the pepperoni. Place in pizza oven for 5-7 minutes. Remove pizza from oven using pizza peel. Transfer to a large cutting board, slice and enjoy!
