  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon warm water (100° to 110°)
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 teaspoons yellow cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup thinly sliced leek (about 1)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup tomato and basil pasta sauce
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) pre-shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water in a medium bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add flour and salt to yeast mixture; stir until mixture forms a soft dough.
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (about 5 minutes). Place dough in a medium bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 35 minutes or until doubled in size. (Press 2 fingers into dough. If indentation remains, dough has risen enough.) Punch dough down; cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 450°.
  4. Roll dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place on a 12-inch pizza pan or baking sheet coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with cornmeal. Bake at 450° for 7 minutes.
  5. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add mushrooms and leek; sauté 6 minutes or until mushrooms are golden brown and leek is tender. Sprinkle with thyme and pepper; stir well. Remove from heat.
  6. Spoon pasta sauce over pizza crust. Top with mushroom mixture, and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° for 14 to 16 minutes or until cheese melts and crust is browned. Cut into 8 slices.
