There's nothing quite as fun to do in the kitchen as stretching, throwing, flouring, and topping a homemade pizza - it's an activity that kids and adults alike can get around.
Making dough from scratch will certainly make you feel more accomplished, but if you're in a rush or simply don't have the patience, buying a ball of dough from your local pizzeria is a great shortcut.
There are endless gourmet topping choices when it comes to pizza, however, we have chosen a simple vegetarian version, to allow the earthy Italian flavors to shine.
Mushrooms are scrumptious little numbers, packed with enriching health benefits - so what better reason to treat yourself to a pizza.

Cremini, Gorgonzola and Gruyere Pizza
3 tablespoons olive oil + more for drizzle
4 cloves garlic, minced
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
Salt and pepper
½ teaspoon fresh thyme
½ teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
¼ cup cornmeal
1 homemade or pre-purchased classic pizza crust
1 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
½ cup gorgonzola, cut into 1-inch cubes
½ brown onion, sliced
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Add the garlic to a cold pan, add olive oil, and heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in mushrooms, thyme and oregano. Cook, stirring occasionally until mushrooms are tender and browned, about 5-6 minutes; season with salt and pepper to taste.
Working on a surface that has been sprinkled with cornmeal, roll out the pizza into a 12-inch-diameter round. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet or pizza pan.
Top with the cooked mushrooms, and sprinkle all the cheese.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until cheese is bubbling and dough is crisp.
Drizzle olive oil over the pizza and enjoy!
