Crispy baked cauliflower crust can kick-start any number of gluten-free pizzas. Here, fragrant basil pesto, sweet-tart tomatoes, umami-rich mushrooms and tangy goat cheese make for a delicious celiac- and vegetarian-friendly main or appetizer. If desired, toss baby arugula with olive oil and sprinkle over top of the pizza just before serving.

1. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Remove all packaging from frozen pizza crust. Place crust, bottom (flat) side up, on wire rack set over baking sheet. Bake, flipping crust once, until edges are golden, 20 to 24 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large non-stick skillet over medium heat; cook mushrooms, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until softened and no liquid remains, about 10 minutes.
3. Spread pesto onto crust, leaving 1/2 inch (1 cm) border. Top with mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes. Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven until bubbly and browned, 7 to 8 minutes.
4. Sprinkle with cheese. Let stand 2 minutes before serving.
