Portobello, Pesto and Mozzarella Pizza

Pizza is the perfect lazy Sunday meal, and I know this because I was feeling REALLY lazy yesterday. It’s hearty enough to make you feel full, easy enough to put together, and gives you the opportunity to truly customize and get creative. The pizza I had initially intended to make was one covered in Mac and Cheese, but because I’m feeling a little doughy myself lately, I went with a slightly healthier option. Thus, the Portobello, Pesto, and Mozzarella pizza. All you need is everything I’ve mentioned, plus a pre-made dough if you’re as lazy as me.

Feel free to skip this step if you’re a bore. While you’re at it, spread your pesto sauce across the dough.

Next, add the mushrooms.

If there is someone standing next to you, telling you that you’ve sprinkled on too much mozzarella, tell them to step away. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. Once you’ve created distance, put your pizza in the oven (375 degrees) for 15 minutes, or until the cheese turns a brownish color. I then like to let my pizza sit in the oven on broil for two minutes, so that the cheese becomes bubbly and golden.
