Mushroom and Spinach Pizza

Ingredients

Pizza Dough

  • 3/4 cup warm water, heated in microwave on high for one minute
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • Olive oil cooking spray

Mushroom and Spinach Pizza

  • 1 cup fresh tomato sauce
  • 1 cup (packed) fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup fat-free mozzarella, grated
  • Pizza dough (see recipe below)

Instructions

Pizza Dough

  1. Put the water into a bowl and sprinkle the yeast over it. Then, add the salt and sugar and mix briefly. Add in the flour and mix again.
  2. Lightly oil a medium bowl. Put the dough into the bowl and with greased hands, kneed it gently for 30 to 45 seconds. Rotate the dough to coat the entire surface with the oil.
  3. Cover the dough with kitchen towel and set it aside in a warm spot so it can rise until its bulk has doubled (1 to 1 1/2 hours).
  4. Spray a large pizza pan (approximately 14-inches) with oil. Spread the dough onto the pan using the fingertips to push it toward the edges.
  5. Proceed as directed in the individual recipes.

Mushroom and Spinach Pizza

  1. Spread the sauce evenly around the dough. Next, add the spinach, followed by the mushrooms and the cheese.
  2. Bake at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes - the cheese should be slightly brown. Makes 8 servings.
