Last Sunday, I stocked up on goodies at Trader Joe’s. When I was on the ginormous line that ran throughout the entire store (but moved blessedly quickly), I grabbed some 99 cent pizza dough. I’ve been thinking about making pizza since my last two pizza creations, and this seemed like opportunity knocking.
Ingredients: 1 bag of TJ’s pizza dough, 1/2 onion, 10 mushrooms, enough mozzerella cheese and tomato sauce to cover the pie, salt, pepper, and oregano to taste. You will also need a frying pan. Mine was 12 inches in diameter.
Set out the dough and allow it to sit in the bag for 20 minutes. Use the time to prep your veggies. I threw my onions and mushrooms into the food processor. I’m still getting used to it, so they were a little more chopped than I had desired, but still tasty. When the dough is ready, spray your pan with non stick spray. Evenly spread out the dough in the pan. Leave some extra dough around the end to roll over to create a crust. Top with sauce, cheese, and your desired toppings and seasonings. Preheat oven to 450. Bake in oven for 10 mintues. The pizza will not be all the way cooked through at this time, (because of the pan), but it should be cooked enough for you to remove it with a spatula and place on the oven racks alone to cook longer. Cook until bottom is browned. Timing will vary depending on thickness of crust. Allow to cool, add some extra parmi, and enjoy! Just like Pizza Uno (only not greasy disguisting).
FYI: If you’re careless like me, and happen to be more focused on not burning your pizza instead of your arm, and thus, burn your arm, mustard makes a great cooling agent. It really soothes the burned skin. No clue why, it just does.
