Bacon, Onion and Mushroom Pizza

We really liked this.  I used a good white cheddar from Costco, and it made the pizza great.  I wouldn’t substitute with regular cheddar on this pizza.

one recipe pizza dough (OR 1 can refrigerated French bread dough, 11 oz)
2 t olive oil
2 cups vertically sliced onions (about 2 small)
1 (8 oz) pkg cremini mushrooms
1 1/2 cups (6 oz) shredded white cheddar
6 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

Stretch dough into a 12 inch round, transfer to pizza pan or large baking sheet.  Preheat oven to 425.

Add olive oil to a warm skillet and saute onion for 8 minutes.  Place onion in a bowl and add mushrooms; saute 8 minutes.  Add mushrooms to onion, toss.

Spread onion mixture over dough, leaving a 1/4″ border.  Sprinkle with white cheddar and bacon.  Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, sprinkle with parsley.
