How about making this pizza for dinner today? Everyone loves pizza and you can make it in different versions for everyone’s taste. This pepper and mushroom pizza is perfect for those who are vegetarian! Noone in my family is vegetarian, but we love it too! Personally, I find mushroom a little tasteless, but when combined with other ingredients on a well made pizza crust, it becomes heavenly!
I’ve made 2 versions of pizza since I learnt how to make a thin and tender pizza crust. See my Homemade Pizza with Cherry Tomatoes and Whole Wheat Pizza with Broccoli (with Yusuf’s secret topping on it) if you haven’t already. You can always create your own topping when you have your favorite pizza crust. I use whole wheat flour to make these pizzas, and they are still as soft as a crust made with white flour.
I used 2 types of pepper –green and red for this mushroom pizza and combined them with a generous amount of grated kasar cheese, which can be replaced by parmesan.
The sauce I use under vegetables gives my mushroom pizza a more Mediterranean flavor with garlic, dried thyme and olive oil inside.
If you are planning to warm up a family dinner, do it with this mushroom pizza! I’m sure everyone will be happy just as they feel the smell. Noone can wait for long to taste this super yummy homemade pizza!
