    1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C. Coat a 30-cm pizza pan with cooking spray.
    2. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring or shaking the pan from time to time, until tender and lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds longer. Remove from the heat and stir in parsley and pepper.
    3. Mix tomato passata sauce and oregano in a small bowl.
    4. If using pizza base dough, on a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 30-cm circle and transfer to the pizza pan. Otherwise, place purchased pizza base on pizza pan. Spread tomato sauce over the base, leaving a 1-cm border. Sprinkle mozzarella over the sauce. Scatter mushroom mixture over mozzarella. Sprinkle with onion. Top with Parmesan.
    5. Bake until the bottom crust is crisp and golden, 10 to 14 minutes and cheese has melted.
