This was a good pizza! I used the Pillsbury canned crust and left off the green pepper.. we don't like them. I only used button mushrooms because that's all the store had. It was delicious! Made for Zaar's Newest Tag Game 2011.

I made a smaller pizza for the DM and I and adjusted the quantities to suit, I did use a red and orange capsicum/bell pepper and all button mushrooms sliced (the reason for not using green capsicum is that the DM would spend time picking it out or refuse to eat the pizza) and I also finely diced the capsicum and therefore cooked the mushrooms, onion and capsicum together and baked for 20 minutes at 175C fan forced for a lovely golden pizza that we both thoroughly enjoyed, thank you Annacia, made for Photo Tag game (under 24 hour rule.)

This made a nice light dinner with a salad! I used a mix of portobella and button mushrooms. Thanks!
