Extra Mushroom, Garlic and Fresh Tomato Pizza

We are huge pizza fans in our house and we make homemade pizza often. I try to change the flavors so we won't get bored plus it's a great way to use up extra ingredients we have in the refrigerator. I love the Trader Joe's whole wheat pizza dough as well as their pizza sauce, so they have become staples in our home. I had a huge container of mushrooms and a bunch of fresh tomatoes to use up so I decided to make a pizza using those ingredients. I added fresh minced garlic to the top of the mushrooms before baking. This pizza turned out terrific - we all LOVED it. Make sure you slice the mushrooms very thin so they don't make the pizza soggy.

  • Recipe and photos by For the Love of
  • Cooking spray
  • Corn meal
  • Whole wheat pizza dough
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • 8 oz button mushrooms, sliced very thin
  • Fresh garlic, minced
  • Fresh tomatoes, sliced thickly
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spread dough on a pizza sheet that has been coated with cooking spray and a sprinkle of corn meal. Spoon the sauce on the dough and spread evenly. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese all over followed by the mushrooms. Next, carefully sprinkle the garlic all over the pizza being careful not to drop in large clumps.
 Place pizza into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven, add the fresh tomato slices on top. Slice and serve. Enjoy.
