Mushroom Mystery Pizza

*Where are the mushrooms in the picture? It is a mystery… Just kidding! I happen to have an 8 oz. container of mushrooms one day and wondered how I was going to get my kids to eat them on their pizza. I figured it out… and they gobbled it up!

8 oz. container mushrooms
8 oz. can tomato sauce
¼ onion
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon salt

20 English Muffins or a 14-inch pizza crust
8 oz. grated CHEESE! (I used an asiago, parmesan, Colby jack blend), divided
Toppings of your choice (pepperoni, ham, onions, tomatoes…)

Heat oven to 425˚ F. Grease a large pan. Puree the first six ingredients in a food processor or a blender. Spread the pureed sauce onto the English Muffins or pizza crust. Top the pizza’s with half of the cheese. Divide the toppings between the pizzas. Add the remaining cheese. Bake 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is toasty!

Delicious! I love how you used English muffins! I've been buying the Double Fiber ones and I think I'm going to have to make these for my kids! Thanks for sharing!!

My mom found your site, and since she doesn't know how to leave comments, I'm helping her out.

1. Your photos are so beautiful and artful!

2. You should work for Family Fun. All your ideas seem like they could be straight out of the magazine. Seriously.

Her words.

I forgot about the english muffin pizzas, we used to eat this all of the time in college, but I'm definitely going to try this recipe, I'm sure it's much, much of a step up from my college days!:) And, the kids love pizza:)
