Portabella Pizza

Portabella pizzas are a fun, light variation on traditional pizza.  A large portabella mushroom cap takes the place of the traditional pizza crust.



  • 4 large portabella mushrooms,
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce,
  • small handful basil leaves,
  • 10-12 cherry tomatoes,
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese,
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning,
  • salt and pepper to taste.



  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  2. Take the stems out of the center of portabella mushrooms and clean.
  3. Put a tablespoon of pizza sauce into the center and spread around.
  4. Add basil on top of pizza sauce.
  5. Layer halved cherry tomatoes on mushrooms, about 2 tomatoes for 1 mushroom cap.
  6. Sprinkle with cheese, and seasoning, then add other tomatoes and a bit more cheese. Sprinkle with leftover italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  7. Bake on a cookie sheet or in a oven safe skillet for 15-18 minutes.
