Who doesn’t like pizza? It’s cheap [generally] and easy. However, I’m not a fan of the flour/wheat crust and I wasn’t feeling up to preparing my own gluten free dough, so I chose an easier route. The mushroom curst. A friend of mine actually posted a pic of her mushroom pizza one night, which got me stoked to try my own.
start with the ‘shrooms!
remove stem and scoop out gills [is that what they're called...gills?]
I dressed up the boring pasta sauce from last weeks meatless meatloaf muffins with some spices, onions and garlic, yum!
fill the caps!
and dress them up!
It’s like a pizza bagel – but better!
Level: Super easy!
Make Again: Most definitely! You could even do a mini version and have them as appetizers at a party! [note - chose a ticker sauce, the watery ones tend to leak]
1 large portobello mushroom, stem removed
1 tablespoon spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese [I used goat cheese]
1/2 tablespoon sliced black olives
4 slices pepperoni sausage [no pep for me]
1 clove garlic, chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place the mushroom on a baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven, and spread spaghetti sauce in the cup of the cap. Top with cheese, olives, pepperoni and garlic.
Bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden.
