  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Line a 30 cm pizza tray or a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add mushrooms, onion, garlic and oregano and fry over a medium heat until the mushrooms are golden-brown, about 7 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, sprinkle with the vinegar, and cover. Remove from the heat and let stand for 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, place the pizza base on the pizza tray. Spread over the tomato paste. Top with the vegetable mixture, pepperoni and mozzarella, then sprinkle over the parsley.
  4. Bake until the crust is golden-brown and crisp and the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot.
