Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil

8 ounces mushrooms, such as white button or crimini, cleaned and sliced

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 pound pizza dough, room temperature

1 1/2 cups shredded fresh mozzarella

1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

2 cloves garlic, minced

Chopped fresh oregano, for garnish

Chopped fresh basil, for garnish

Directions

Place a large baking sheet, upside down, in the oven and preheat to 500°F.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook until light golden-brown and tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

On a lightly floured surface, press dough into a 10-inch circle. Transfer dough to parchment-paper-lined pizza peel.

Sprinkle mozzarella evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Top with cooked mushroom and cherry tomatoes and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

Quickly slide pizza onto prepared baking sheet and bake until dough is golden-brown and cooked through and cheese is melted, about 10 to 13 minutes. Top with oregano and basil. Slice and serve.
