Preparation

Preparation

1 Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). Heat 1 Tbsp (15 mL) canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and onions; cook 2 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook 2 minutes, using two utensils to stir easily. Add garlic, cook 15 seconds, and set aside.

2 Drizzle remaining 1/2 Tbsp (7 mL) canola oil on a baking sheet. Use fingertips to spread oil evenly.

3 Unroll dough onto baking sheet and shape into an 11 x 8-inch rectangle. Top dough with pepper flakes and mushroom mixture, spooning as close to edges as possible. Top with basil and arrange tomatoes in 12 even sections.

4 Bake 12 minutes. Sprinkle evenly with mozzarella. Bake 6 more minutes or until deep golden on edges. Top with Parmesan and sprinkle evenly with olives. Allow to cool to room temperature.

5 When serving, cut into 12 squares, and then cut each square in half diagonally to make 24 pieces total.
