Spinach, Garlic, Mushroom, and Fresh Basil Pizza

When I am having one of those days where I don’t feel like cooking, I pick up some pizza dough and sauce from Trader Joe’s and create a quick and easy pizza using whatever ingredients I have in the refrigerator. This weeks pizza had leftover spinach, sliced mushrooms, garlic and fresh basil – it was FANTASTIC. Homemade pizza is so easy to make and tastes WAY better than take out pizza!

  • Cooking spray
  • Corn meal
  • Pizza dough
  • Pizza sauce
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Baby spinach
  • Sliced mushrooms, sliced very thin
  • Fresh garlic, minced
  • Fresh basil, chiffonade

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 spinach, mushrooms, and minced garlic.

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 basil on top. Slice and serve. Enjoy.
