Ingredients

  • 1 lb. of Pure Flavor® Aurora Bites, roasted
  • 3 mini pizza crusts
  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of dried oregano
  • 2 cups of arugula
  • 1 ½ cups of sliced portabella mushrooms, sautéed

  • 5 ounces soft fresh goat cheese

Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Step 2

Place pizza crusts on large baking sheet.

Step 3

In a medium pan with olive oil, sauté the mushrooms for about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool when done.

Step 4

Cut peppers in half, remove seeds and remove stems. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast the peppers in oven for about 20-25 minutes until charred. Set peppers aside in covered bowl until cool (about 30 minutes). Once cool enough, peel skin and slice thinly.

Step 5

Mix olive oil and minced garlic in small bowl.

Step 6

Using pastry brush, brush 1 tablespoon of garlic oil evenly over all 3 crusts.

Step 7

Top each crust with arugula, then sprinkle with sliced mushrooms, roasted red peppers, fresh basil, dried oregano, and crumbled goat cheese.

Step 8

Drizzle pizzas evenly with remaining garlic oil.

Step 9

Bake pizza until crust is crisp and cheese begins to brown, about 12-15 minutes.

Step 10

Transfer pizza to board. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
