Prosciutto and Mushroom Whole Wheat Pizza for Mommy and Daddy

I love making pizza! It's so fun to come up with different combinations of toppings, and even more fun to attempt to throw the dough in the air. I am terrible at this, it never works for me, but I still do it every time!

Here's what you'll need:
1 package whole wheat pizza dough (I got ours at Trader Joe's)
1/3 cup sliced crimini mushrooms
2-3 slices prosciutto shredded apart
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2/3 cup marinara with garlic
2 handfuls shredded parmesan, asiago, fontina, and provolone cheese (This is usually the Italian four cheese mix they have in the grocery store)
Red pepper flakes
Olive oil

Take dough out of package and let rest on a floured surface for 20 minutes before cooking. Preheat oven to 450F. Roll out dough with a floured rolling pin, or with your hands. Place dough on a floured baking pan, or pizza stone if you have one. Pour marinara sauce on to the dough and spread around evenly. Add chopped cilantro and parsley. Add 2 handfuls of cheese. Place sliced mushrooms and shredded. prosciutto around the pizza. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Brush olive oil over pizza crust and place in oven. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cut into slices and enjoy!
