Happy Vegetarian Day!!!
Start off October (which just so happens to be Vegetarian Awareness Month) with an easy to make veggie pizza. 

During my lengthy quest for the ideal combination of a perfectly chewy, crispy-on-the-edges light crust, tangy but not too sweet tomato sauce, melty cheese, and just the right medley of vegetables to top it all off I found these specific products fit my bill for a "perfect pizza" quite well. So next time you take a trip to your local WalMart pick these ingredients up and discover why Domino's won't be getting a call from you anytime soon.

This pizza serves 2-3 people

(found in the Walmart bakery section and sometimes labeled Marketside Thin Pizza Crust)
1 1/2 cups spinach, roughly chopped
1 cup 2% mozzarella cheese
6 cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 small jalapeno, very thinly sliced
(or substitute your own favorite pizza veggies)

Preheat oven to 400F
Line the biggest baking sheet you have with tinfoil and spray with Pam

Place crust on pan and spray it lightly with Pam (this is to keep your sauce from making your crust soggy)

Spread sauce evenly over the crust

Sprinkle spinach on top of sauce

Then the cheese on top of the spinach

Arrange mushrooms and jalapenos on top of the cheese

Bake in the oven for 6 minutes then turn your oven onto broiler, move your pizza to the middle rack and let it cook for 5-7 minutes (keep a close eye on it to make sure nothing burns)

Slice into 8 pieces and enjoy!
