Cheesy Pepper and Mushroom Pizza Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • Nonstick spray coating
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese, drained
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium green or red sweet pepper
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions:

For the crust, mix 3/4 cup of the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add oil and 1/2 cup warm water (120 degrees F to 130 degrees F). Beat with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl. Beat on high speed 3 minutes. Stir in as much remaining flour as you can.

Then, knead in enough remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (5 minutes total).

Shape into a ball. Place in a greased bowl; turn once. Cover; let rise in a warm place until double (about 30 minutes). Punch down. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

On a floured surface roll dough into a 14-inch circle. Place on a pizza pan sprayed with nonstick spray coating and sprinkled with the cornmeal. Build up edges slightly. Bake crust in a 425 degree F oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

In a blender container combine cottage cheese, egg, Parmesan, basil, garlic, and pepper. Cover; blend until smooth. Spread over hot crust. Cut green pepper into rings. Place atop a pizza with mushrooms. Sprinkle with mozzarella. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for 10 minutes until hot.
