Easy Pizza 101

I like dinner to be easy during the week. The BF and I work 9-5 Monday through Friday and usually after a long day of work, going to the gym and the commute on the train (where sometimes men with weird foot fetishes hit on you and try to follow you home) we just want a quick and easy dinner. The foot fetish thing really did happen to me, like yesterday. So I really enjoy pizza and my favorite is homemade. Pre-made pizza doughs are usually pretty good. I was really excited when I found ready-made whole wheat pizza dough at Trader Joe's. It's just a big wad of dough in a bag. It's the closest thing you can get to homemade without having to mix the dough yourself. We used regular tomato sauce and added seasoning along with a low-fat mozzarella cheese. I have found that when it come to low fat cheeses, Sargento seems to melt the best. For the topping we used little baby portabella mushrooms. They're so cute and yummy! Since mushrooms contain a lot of water we sauteéd them first to cook most of it out. We then sprinkled on some spices and baked at 400 degrees F for about 10-12 minutes and ta-da! Easy almost homemade pizza.

I think the foot fetish guy would approve.
