1 (12-inch) thin pizza crust
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon dried basil leaves
1/4 pound sliced mushrooms
2 cups fresh baby spinach
1/2 pound cooked, seasoned peeled crawfish
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced or 1 cup shredded, part-skim, mozzarella cheese

1. Preheat oven 400ºF. Cover crust with olive oil and garlic. Sprinkle with basil.
2. In small nonstick skillet coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté the mushrooms for about 5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach, stirring until wilted.

Terrific Tidbit: Fresh mozzarella cheese may be found in the deli section and has a different texture and taste than the packaged mozzarella cheese. It is slightly higher in fat but I think it is worth the flavor.
