Sunny's Avenue J Pizza

Recipe by Melcat

I got this from food network on Sunny Anderson's show Cooking for Real. It's a delicious recipe and it's so simple! The recipe calls for focaccia but I used a persian loaf and it worked great.

This felt like a weekend treat on a week night! Very easy to prepare, for the pizza base I used chef#324136 s Recipe #234105, made previously and frozen for future use. Tomatoes are mentioned in the directions but not in the ingredients, so I used the last of some tomato-onion sauce I had in the fridge, I make my own tomato sauce and there is generally some to be found when I need it! Otherwise, I made as directed. I'm not a mushroom lover, but these were very good prepared in this fashion. I forgot to add the extra parmesan, but this was already a meal and a half, excellent as was! Made for PAC Fall 2009, thank you, Melcat!
