Homemade Mushroom & Spinach Pizza

Next time you get the urge to order out, take a quick inventory of your pantry instead and use some staple ingredients to whip up this simple Homemade Mushroom & Spinach Pizza recipe from Paula of bell’alimento.

I love that by mixing together five simple ingredients, you can create an amazing homemade pizza dough. Making pizza at home is simple and scrumptious, not to mention you can make it for pennies on what you would pay at your local pizza joint.

My homemade pizza dough recipe makes two medium-sized pizzas. You could easily double the ingredients to make two pizzas.

We typically make pizza in our house once a week. One of our favorites is this mushroom and spinach pizza. It has big bold and meaty flavors, so you won’t even miss the traditional meat! Feel free to use a blend of different varieties of fresh mushrooms for a more complex flavor. If you like things spicy, sprinkle a bit of red pepper flakes on top prior to baking.
