Portobello Mushroom Pizza

Mushroom Pizza

The mushrooms make it easy to sidestep the pizza crust and use the caps instead.  You can fill each cap with whatever you and your family love – and make them individually to order! Here’s a basic Pizza that works for my family …

4 Portobello Mushroom Caps – remove and dice stems in small pieces to add to caps
1/4 thinly sliced red or white onion
1/4 cup diced green or yellow pepper
1/2 cup steamed or raw spinach
1 tsp crushed red pepper if you like it hot 
2 cups best spaghetti sauce ever
1/2 cup sliced black olives – or green if you want to zing it up!
2 cups grated Mozzarella soy cheese or regular cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

1. Lightly spray mushroom caps with olive oil, place cap side down on a baking sheet, and cook in oven for about 5 minutes to slightly soften.

2. Remove tray from the oven and fill each cap with 1/4  cup spaghetti sauce. Add equal amount of remaining ingredients to each cap, and cover each pizza with 1/2 cup cheese.

3. Place tray in oven and cook for about 15 minutes until cheese is bubbling and browning. 

Yields 4 mini-pizzas … serve with salad and enjoy! Happy eating!
