This unusual veggie-packed pizza is covered with a creamy mushroom mixture and lemony arugula. The crisp salad topping adds freshness and lightens up the texture. Serve sprinkled with freshly ground pepper.

Prep time 25 minutes
Total time 25 minutes
Portion size 4
1 pkg (200 g) thin multigrain pizza crust
3/4 cup (75 g) shredded Gruy re cheese
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil
2 shallots, chopped
2 tsp (10 mL) minced fresh thyme
2 cloves garlic, chopped
8 oz (227 g) cremini mushrooms, quartered
1 pinch salt
1 pinch pepper
1 cup (84 g) frozen peas, thawed
2 oz (57 g) light cream cheese, cubed
2 cups (500 mL) arugula
1 tsp (5 mL) lemon juice
Place crust on parchment paper–lined baking sheet or pizza pan. Sprinkle with Gruy re cheese, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) border uncovered. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until cheese is melted and crust is golden and no longer doughy, 6 to 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat butter and half of the oil over medium heat; cook shallots, thyme and garlic, stirring occasionally, until shallots are softened, 2 minutes.
Add mushrooms, salt and pepper; cook for 4 minutes. Add peas and cream cheese; cook until peas are warm and cheese is melted. Spread on baked crust.
Toss together arugula, lemon juice and remaining oil; scatter over pizza.
