Wild Mushroom Pizza

Just like this. . sort of. ..

Q:Why does Mr. Mushroom get invited to all the best Muldermas parties?
A:Cuz he's such a fun guy! (fungi =-get it? Get it???)

And you can just bet that after all the fun Mr. Mushroom's relative caused in Field Trip, a dish like this will be high on the list of M&S favourites.

Or not.

1 medium-size red bell pepper
1 medium-size green bell pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 pound assorted wild mushrooms (such as oyster, crimini, morel and stemmed shiitake), sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 10-ounce purchased fully baked thin pizza crust
1 cup shredded Fontina cheese
1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion

Char bell peppers over gas flame or in broiler until blackened on all sides. Enclose in paper bag; let stand 10 minutes. Peel, seed and thinly slice peppers.

Preheat oven to 450 deg. F. Heat oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and rosemary. Cover skillet and cook until mushrooms are just tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Uncover and simmer until any juices evaporate. Season with salt and pepper.

Place crust on baking sheet.

Top with cheese, onion, peppers and mushrooms.

Bake pizza until heated through and cheese melts, about 15 minutes.

Serves 4-6

Kung Pao Chicken

Nothing like this. . but doesn't it look tasty?

Sure, you can pay a small fortune to have some would-be stalker and/or potential assassin bring this right to your door, origami-inspired cardboard carton and all, but why not live a little? Invite your favourite skeptic/partner/love interest over, rent an appropriate video, whip it up a wokful of this stuff, and see how the evening progresses?

What have you got to lose, hmm?
