Individual Mushroom, Onion, and Arugula Pizzas

    My husband actually said "wow" when he had his first bite of this pizza. This is high praise! I liked the adult flavors of this recipe - the mushrooms, and bite of pecorino romano and lemon, and while it isn't a quick one to throw together b/c it has several steps, it's still pretty simple to pull off. I really enjoyed the instructions for pre-heating the heavy pan/pizza stone & then just pulling the oven rack out a little from the oven to assemble the pizza right on the stone as the bottom of the dough is already starting to crisp up. I did add some lemon zest into the ricotta mixture and a little salt into the mushroom/onion mixture - otherwise it would have been a bit too bland. The dressed arugula on top of the pizza was perfect with a grind or two of added pepper and a sprinkle of cheese. I will make this meatless meal again!

    While I love the idea of individual pizzas, I wasn't wow-ed by these at all. The mushroom, onion mixture doesn't bring much flavor to the table and ricotta, though deliciously creamy, doesn't really pack a punch either so the whole thing came off as pretty bland. I won't be making these again.

    Easy to make. I added some Marinara sauce as a first layer to make things a bit interesting. It turned out delicious.
