Reviews for Mushroom Pizza Casserole

I could tell that this would be bland, so I decided to spice it up for my husband and me. I added a large chopped jalapeno pepper and sauteed it with the onion. I used fresh mushrooms and sauteed them with the jalapeno and onion. I increased the Italian seasoning to a tablespoon and eliminated the salt. My husband gave it a 10! It was great and was not hot -- more like on a medium-to-mild scale of spiciness. The longer you cook the jalapeno pepper, the milder it gets.
