Meaty mushrooms, green onions, tomatoes and mozzarella are only a few topping suggestions, get creative and have fun.

Ingredients

2 cups cooked Kokuho Rose® or Tex Farm long grain white rice
500 mL
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 125 mL
1 egg, lightly beaten 1
1/4 cup prepared pesto 50 mL
1/2 cup sliced, fresh mozzarella cheese 125 mL
1 tomato, thinly sliced 1
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms 125 mL
2 tbsp sliced green onions 30 mL

Directions

In bowl, combine rice, cheese and egg. Press onto lightly greased foil-lined baking sheet to form an 8-inch (20 cm) circle. Spread with prepared pesto and top with mozzarella slices, tomato, mushrooms and green onions.

Bake at 400 F (200 C) until toppings are cooked, cheese is golden and bubbly and outer crust is crisp on the edges, about 15 minutes.
