Cheesy Mushroom & Onion Pizza

This is an amazing Cheesy Mushroom & Onion Pizza recipe.  So easy, so delicious, and a must try.  Go extra crispy to sweeten the deal!  If you’re not one for the well done, no worries, cook for ’til your lil’ heart desires. As a native New Yorker, I find that buying pizza virtually anywhere further north than the Hudson Valley (some would even argue that’s too far north) is almost always an incredible disappointment.  I’ve had some amazing pizzas that are clearly the style of the restaurant, but I’m talkin’ classic, thin crusted, bubbly, fold it, flop it, yet not soggy slice of heaven that is a true NY slice of life.  My mouth is actually watering and I feel possible drooling coming on… I must continue before I raid my fridge for some complete and utter unnecessary caloric gorge.  But oh, yuummm… Now, I am not even going to pretend that this recipe is supposed to imitate, even in the slightest, the unworldly goodness of the NY pie, however, this is an awesome recipe when you’re looking for more of a homemade style pizza, or if you simply don’t live in New York!  Mushroom & Onion, a tad overly cheesy, and a bit ‘a garlic have always been my sweet slice. Hence why this is pretty much one of the only pizzas I make. Now go and pizza yourself to pieces!

      Tofu Tuna! That is the homepage picture. I can’t see “Cheesy Mushroom Pizza” under it. There is, however, a pizza post with that title. Hmmm…
