Making Pizza from Scratch: Roasted Garlic, Mushroom and Roasted Red Pepper Pizza (Part 4 of 5)

Hugh, Frank and June made this Roasted Garlic, Mushroom and Roasted Red Pepper Pizza. We took a short cut using jarred roasted red peppers instead of roasting the peppers ourselves. However, we still have to roast the garlic. This require a bit of time management as the garlic takes 30 minutes to roast and you need to let it cool down before you can squeeze them out from the husks.


The Roasted Garlic and Roasted Red Pepper add sweetness to this pizza. However, I find that the rosemary is a bit overpowering.


  • a pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 heads of garlic
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 3/4 cup sliced jarred roasted red peppers
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
