10 to 12-inch pizza crust (make your own, or buy one from the bakery in the grocery store)
1/2 cup tomato sauce
pizza spice, Paul Prudhomme or store brand
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic, chopped
1 cup fresh spinach
1/3 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup four cheese pizza blend shredded cheese
Be sure the crust fits the pan and oven you are going to use to bake the pizza.
Lay the crust, frozen or thawed, on the pizza pan. Start by spreading a layer of your favorite spaghetti sauce, evenly, all over the crust up to very near the edge.
Sprinkle some pizza spice lightly all over the sauce.
Chop together in a food processor onion, garlic and spinach leaves. Put in a small bowl.
Use a fork to carefully and evenly dole out and spread the chopped mix all over the sauce; then, on top of the vegetables, put some sliced mushrooms all over the pizza with the slices arranged about an inch or so apart.
Lastly, sprinkle the grated cheese all over the pizza. Don't smother the pizza, but add enough to lightly cover it.
Heat your oven to about 375 degrees Farenheit, or no more than 400, and cook the pizza 15 to 20 minutes, depending on whether the crust was frozen or thawed when you started. It's done when the cheese has started to melt all over, and the sauce is trying to run over the edge.
Serve with sliced jalapeno peppers or pepper rings to be added (carefully) as you enjoy it.
To make your own crust:
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup Spelt flour
2/3 cup warm water
1/2 package yeast
1/4 teaspoon honey (or sugar)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
Put most of the water in a small pan and turn on burner just briefly to warm the water and make the pan warm, not hot. Add yeast and sweetener. Stir and let sit for at least a half-hour until small bubbles form to show the yeast is activated. Add more water if the mixture seems too dry
Add flour to pan. Add salt, and knead or mix until dough forms, about a minute. Form the dough into a ball and drop back into a bowl or pan, add the small amount of oil and roll the ball around to coat the ball with oil. This will keep the dough from drying out as it rises.
Let the dough rise (in a warm, not cold place) for about an hour or until the dough has expanded noticeably. Drop the dough onto the counter and spread by hand or roll with a rolling pin to form the pizza crust, about 1/4 inch thick. It can be round or square, depending on the pan you will use and the oven.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, then cook crust on the pan for 10 to 12 minutes.
Bring out the hot crust, add the toppings according to the recipe, and return to the oven for another 15 minutes in a conventional oven. Bake until the cheese is noticeably melted all around.
