This turned out great! I did make a few changes though. I used a pre-made Trader Joe's crust. First I sauteed onions with about 2 cups of sliced mushrooms until very soft then I spread the onion mushroom mixture onto the crust and baked it at 400F for about 20min until the crust turned brown. Then I tore about 1 1/2 cups of arugula leaves into pieces leaving out the stems and spread it on top of the onions and mushrooms then I topped that with about 1/2 a cup of shredded parmesan cheese and about 1/4 of a cup of pine nuts. I put it back in the oven for 5 min until the cheese melted. It was delicious!!

This was fantastic! However, I did make several changes. 1. I used the new Pillsbury Artisan Pizza dough. 2. I did not use rosemary or the pine nuts as my family doesn’t like either one. 3. I sprinkled about ½ cup of crumbled feta cheese over the other cheese. 4. I used about 2 cups of baby arugula. It was delish and my family loved it!!

looks lovely! I added some tomatoe to the recipe and made two personal pizzas instead of one large one!

Great flavor! Next time I'm going to double the balsamic because it wasn't enough to spread on the crust. I also used a Pillsbury crust.

I made my own crust and cooked the onions in a cast iron skillet prior to putting them on the pizza. Left out the rosemary and pine nuts, added fresh basil from the garden. Delicious!
