Despite seriously disliking blue cheese in my youth, I’ve grown to like it over the past couple of years. It’s definitely an acquired taste, but if you’re a fan, you know just how versatile it is and how well it works in dips, salads, dressings, and so much more. This is a good pizza to eat if you’re aiming for portion control (something which I definitely need to exercise more of when it comes to pizza, making this a positive experiment), because it’s heavier and stronger-tasting than the average pie. It would be the perfect party appetizer or works for dinner when paired with a large salad or something light.
– homemade or fresh pizza dough
– 1/3 large onion, thinly sliced
– 2/3 cup sauce
– 1/2 cup blue cheese
– 1/2 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 425°F (or whatever the dough instructs). Roll out dough into thin pizza shape on a lightly floured baking sheet. Add a thin layer of sauce and top with mushrooms, onions, and cheese. Bake at 425°F for 10-12 minutes.
