Keto Portobello Mushroom Margherita Pizza

Portobello mushrooms have a meaty texture that soaks up spices, herbs, and other flavorings like a sponge. It’s no wonder they’re a main course in many vegan and vegetarian restaurants. Mushrooms are a rare vegetable source of vitamin D and also contain high levels of potassium. The cheese and olive oil (the fats) in this recipe help you absorb that all-important vitamin D.

  • Preheat the oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the olive oil and garlic; then add the mushrooms to the bowl. Rub the oil all over the mushrooms and place them gill-side down on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Broil the mushrooms until they are tender, turning once, about 4 minutes in total.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and evenly divide the tomato sauce among the mushroom caps, spreading it on the gill side. Then top with the mozzarella cheese.
  • Broil the mushrooms until the cheese is melted and bubbly, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Serve topped with the basil.

    Excellent we loved it! Easy very tasty and filling. We were thinking if all the different toppings . The only suggestion is to cut the thicker mushrooms in half. We will make this again.
