  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Place oven rack in low position. Unroll dough with oven-safe parchment paper onto ungreased large cookie sheet (dough bakes on paper). Brush with olive oil. Bake 7 minutes. Remove from oven.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and salt; cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion softens. Add mushrooms; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until softened and beginning to brown. Stir in garlic; remove from heat.
  3. Spread mushroom mixture evenly over dough. Top with spinach, mozzarella cheese and Parmesan cheese.
  4. Bake 7 to 11 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Sprinkle with thyme.

Recipe Tips

  • We tested with yellow onion, but sweet onion or red onion would also work well.
  • No fresh thyme? Substitute fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley, or leave out the herb garnish entirely.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is vegetarian. Products and ingredient sources can change.
