Personal Portobello Pizzas for Punks

Yes, I did add the punks in the title just for alliteration. What can I say, I'm a sucker for the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words. I'm also a sucker for easy meals with few ingredients, which this one is. It's on the healthier side too, which doesn't hurt.

2 portobello mushroom caps, stems removed
a handful of tomatoes (I used grape and cherry heirloom), sliced
Mozzarella cheese
Olive oil
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly coat mushroom caps with EVOO and bake for five minutes.

Remove, and top the underside with pesto. Use as much or as little as you'd like. I think I used about a tablespoon for each side. Top with mozzarella cheese (I added two slices to each because cheese is life) and tomato slices.

Broil for an additional five minutes, keeping a close eye on it. That's it!

If it gets a little watery, just drain it off in between.

Mushrooms are fun guys.
They like pizza parties too. 
Fire up the oven.

  1. I've seen a lot of recipes using portobello mushrooms but I've yet to give them a try. I like the idea of using them as a burger, but my other half isn't the biggest mushroom fan so we tend to stay away from mushroom heavy recipes. I do like the sound of these (minus the cheese, but I can get some vegan cheese instead), I love a good ol' veggie dinner!

  2. Nice and easy and quick.
    Still in the soup.
    Feels hot.
    No oven needed.
    Sticky for days.

    Love. Your. Momma.

  3. Nope. Mushrooms are not my thing. They are not fun...they are fungus. Hahahaha. But no worries, I will just eat all the toppings :) Yum!

  4. These look really yummy! I love a good portobello shroom!

  5. Love the name and these look delicious! That cheese.... :)

  6. Yummy. I love mushrooms. I tried to make this once with red sauce and the works. My chef friend was in town and she did one and I did one. Somehow hers looked 10xs better. Haha. Mine was a wreck. Don't ask me how...

  7. I could eat mushrooms every day of my life.
    Our grocery actually prepares portobello mushrooms with different toppings so you just have to pop in the oven. i'm always buying some of those.

  8. This is beautiful and easy and I want it right now.

  9. Every now and then, I make Portobello Pizzas, but never with Pesto (all the Ps!) - I am so making these, soon!

  10. i love alliteration.
    i also love mushrooms. i made something similar the other day and KC was all like wah, this isn't beef-beans-rice and i don't like it. so the mushroom pizza party will be a solo party over here for now on.

  11. I find myself trying to add some alliteration to post titles sometimes too! Those pizzas look so good, and they definitely would be a great way to cut down on carbs at night!

  12. We use these a lot. Often, we stuff them with a quinoa or couscous mixture. They're delicious every time. They make great burgers too...marinade them in a bit of balsamic vinaigrette before grilling them. Delish!

  13. This recipe sounds so good and easy which are my two favorite words. I don't cook buy Portobello mushrooms often enough so that will have to change.
