And they can be fun to eat. I promise. Just turn them into your favorite indulgence treat: pizza.
This ‘za twist on a mini pizza makes a delicious addition to any pasta meal or make up a bunch for cocktails with friends. I bet they’d taste great paired with red vino.
3-5 good-sized fresh portabella mushrooms, stems carved out
1-2 T mozzarella cheese (soy-version works great)
1-2 T marinara
Optional Toppings: olives, artichoke hearts, pepperoni, etc.
-Scoop a small amount of sauce into each portabella. Sprinkle with seasoning, a layer of cheese, and a little more seasoning. If you’re adding in toppings, place those on top of cheese.
-Note that not much is needed in each portabella cap.
-Bake in oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or so, or broil on high for 5 minutes.
You’ll know they’re perfectly crisp and ready once the cheese bubbles and begins to brown a bit. Serve very warm.
