My easy version of a Martha Stewart shiitake pizza..
I gotta say, I love Martha Stewart. She makes some awesome things, but to me, she tends to overly complicate things. She uses off the wall cooking terms that could be made much more user-friendly. I have learned to read between the lines, and I made an awesome shiitake mushroom pizza inspired by her!
Here is the crust I used...I have tried this crust about 10 times and it has been awesome every time!
The directions on the pack work great. This pizza was just for me, so I halved the pack and saved the rest in a Ziploc bag.
To begin, I cooked the crust for about 5 minutes on 400 until it was just puffy. Then I sprayed the crust with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkled it nicely with granulated garlic. Next, I spread about 2 tablespoons of ricotta cheese over the crust.
I then added about a cup and a half of thinly sliced shiitake mushrooms, a large sprinkle of chopped rosemary and a large handful of cheese. I used a strong Irish cheese that I got at Sam's. I tend to like a strong stinky cheese...the smellier the better. Strong cheese means tasty cheese!
The picture below shows the pizza topped and ready to go back in the oven on 400 for about 15-20 more minutes...
After cooking....here is the final deliciously easy product..I loved it, as always. I confess. I....love...food. :)
Love what you eat and eat what you love! :)
Here is Martha's pizza, just in case you want to be fancy. :)
