The other night I came home for work and decided that instead of stopping by the grocery, I would use what was left in my fridge to make a meal. Surprisingly, it was one of THE BEST meals I had made in a long time! I had several fresh veggies that needed to be used up, and this is what resulted:

1 can pizza dough
2 Roma tomatoes
1/2-3/4 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 chopped yellow onion
1 small package of Canadian bacon, chopped
1 chopped bell pepper
jalapenos to taste
1+ cup of shredded cheese

Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat olive oil in skillet, and add onions and bell pepper when hot. Cook onions and bell pepper for about 3-4 minutes and add mushrooms. Cook about 2 minutes and add tomatoes and Canadian bacon. Add jalapenos at the end. Remove from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes. Divide pizza crust in half and roll into two thin circles. Lump cooled mixture into center of circle and add about 1/2 cup (or more) on top. Fold circle in half and pinch sides. Bake on one side for 7 minutes. Flip and bake on other side for about 7 more minutes. Can serve with warmed pasta sauce, but it is fine on its own!
