Jarred pesto and a package of sun-dried tomatoes top pizza dough from the deli section.

Look for fresh pizza dough in the refrigerator section of your supermarket—or buy uncooked dough from your local pizza parlor.


Cooking spray
1 1/2 ounces smoke-dried or sun-dried tomatoes
1 pound pizza dough
1/4 cup jarred pesto
1 large portobello mushroom cap, thinly sliced
3/4 cup shredded Fontina cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Place tomatoes in a medium bowl, cover with hot water, and soak 15 minutes. Drain and finely chop.
  3. Press dough into a 12-inch circle in the center of baking sheet. Spread pesto over dough; arrange mushroom slices on top. Dot with tomatoes and sprinkle cheese on top.
  4. Bake until brown and bubbly, about 20 minutes. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes before slicing.
