Pizza Your Way

Actually it's pizza my way with what I had in the fridge the other day. Use whatever you have on hand to top your pizza.

12 slices

1 recipe pizza dough
1 recipe pizza sauce
1 cup grated mozzarella
2 oz leftover cooked chicken breast, diced
1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers
4 chopped sundried tomatoes (packed in oil)
1/2 cup diced button mushrooms
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
olive oil

Preheat oven to 375F.

Roll out the dough to fit your large pizza pan. In my case I used a square baking sheet. My pizza looked more rustic. Spread half the sauce recipe over the dough. Sprinkle half the cheese over the sauce then add your toppings. Sprinkle the other have of the cheese over the toppings followed by the parmesan and oregano. Brush the edges of the pizza dough with olive oil then bake for 25 minutes or until brown and bubbly. Let it rest for a few minutes before cutting.

Tip: You can make a white pizza if you don't use the sauce. Instead, mix some minced garlic with olive oil and brush over the rolled dough. My favourite toppings on a white pizza would be simply mozzarella, green olives and sliced tomatoes. When it comes to topping pizza, the possibilities are endless!
