Mushroom, Onion and Basil Pizza

Mushroom, Onion and Basil Pizza


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (10-ounce) baked thin pizza crust
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/4 cup sliced, reconstituted sun-dried tomatoes OR fresh tomatoes, sliced in ¼ inch rounds
  • 4 ounces shredded, part-skim mozzarella cheese (about 1 cup) and ¼ cup fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh basil leaves


Preheat the oven to 450F.  Heat the oil in a skillet over a medium heat. Add the mushrooms and onions and cook until tender and most of the liquid evaporates-5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and remove from the heat.  Place the rolled pizza crust on a baking sheet. Spread the sauce over the crust leaving a 1-inch border. Top with the mushroom mixture and tomatoes. Sprinkle with cheeses. Bake until the crust is crisp and the cheese is nicely melted, about 13 minutes. Sprinkle with basil, cut into 8 slices and serve.
