Basil-Mushroom Pizza

This week's been busy.  Two Christmas parties, a catch-up with friends, my cake decorating class, and now Mom's birthday visit.  The busy weeks seem to fly by!  Since I'll be too busy tonight to share my meal with you, I'm cheating a bit and showing lunch.  It's cheating, because only half is a new recipe.  This pizza, is made using a fresher batch of the pizza dough I showed a few months ago.

Really, it's simple, and turns out fantastically!

Basil-Mushroom Pizza
Makes: 1 individual pizza

1/6th of the pizza dough (1 ball) [if using frozen, defrost overnight in the fridge]
2 Tbsp pizza sauce
1 oz pizza mozzarella
6 fresh basil leaves
2 mushrooms, sliced

Preheat oven to 450 F.  At the same time, remove pizza dough from fridge and let it warm to room temperature on the counter top (about 10 minutes).

Knead your dough, using cornmeal instead of whole wheat flour this time.  Place it on parchment so it doesn't stick to the pizza stone (optional).
Spread pizza dough with sauce, mushrooms, basil, and cheese.
Bake pizza on pizza stone for 15 - 18 minutes.  Remove from oven, serve with a salad and enjoy!
