Pizza With Mozzarella, Mushrooms & Spinach

I really like making my own pizzas because I can add as much or as little of any ingredient that I like.  I really like mushrooms and cheese, so you’ll see a lot of those on any pizza that I make!

I used a store-bought refrigerated pizza dough as the base for this pizza, and a simple tomato sauce.  I sprinkled two minced cloves of garlic on top of the sauce and a sprinkling of dried thyme.  Then, I added a good layer of shredded mozzarella cheese, chopped fresh baby spinach and sliced cremini mushrooms.  On top of that I added a sprinkling of dried oregano and a little bit more cheese.  I baked the pizza for 12 minutes at 400F.

I don’t have exact measurements of each ingredient that I used, like I said, that’s the great thing about making pizzas – you don’t really need a recipe.  My pizza was a little too herby because I went a little crazy with the oregano, but it’s a nice change from frozen store-bought pizzas.  :)
