Serves 8 | Prep Time: 20 mins. | Cook Time: 20 mins.
8 oz fresh button mushrooms
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 tbsp canola oil
1 pkt Mushroom Seasoning Blend
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
1 ball prepared pizza dough
1/3 cup tomato sauce
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
1 1/2 cups shredded part skim Mozzarella Cheddar Blend
1 plum tomato, seeded and diced
1/2 small red onion, very thinly sliced
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
1/4 cup light mayonnaise
2 tbsp yellow mustard
Place the mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped. Heat the oil in a large, nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushroom mixture, ground beef, seasoning blend, salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes until mushroom mixture is browned.
Preheat the oven to 450F (230C). Roll the dough out, on a lightly floured surface, into an 18 x 12-inch rectangle; transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Stir the tomato sauce with the barbecue sauce and spread over the dough. Sprinkle cheese over the sauce; top with mushrooms mixture, tomatoes and red onion.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden. Stir the mayonnaise with the mustard. Sprinkle the lettuce over the pizza and drizzle with mayonnaise mixture. Cut into portions and serve immediately.
Tip: Place the mayonnaise mixture into a plastic resealable bag and snip off a small portion of the corner. Pipe the mixture over the pizza to get an even drizzle.
