Portobello Pizza

portobello pizza

I was the strange kid that went to Pizza Hut when I was little to cash in my Book It Rewards (Remember those?) and ordered a personal pan mushroom pizza. I LOVE Mushrooms.  I still to this day order mushrooms on my pizza, and my kids all turn their noses up at me. ~giggle~

I am always on a constant mission of trying to find healthier things to eat, but that still fill my tummy. I hate eating something healthy only to find that 5 minutes later my stomach is growling like I never ate.  I found these beautiful portobello caps at the store, and knew I had to give this a try.  I was in awe at the results! These little bits of heaven are amazing! And they took just a couple minutes to throw together! Serve this with a salad and you have a great lunch.  Or just make them up for an appetizer or snack! DELICIOUS!

I left mine under the broiler a little longer than I would have liked, but I was distracted by kids. 😉 They still tasted UNBELIEVABLE!
