Portobello Mushroom Pizza

YUMMY, YUMMY, YUMMY! I made this delicious dish tonight! I apologize for the lack of photos, my camera is broken, as I have previously mentioned. But, I have made up for it by offering up the recipe to this delightfully wonderful dish that will satisfy your pallet and not make your waistline suffer!

I have had this cookbook since my birthday (September 4th) but I had yet to utilize it. My Master Cleanse had me so food obsessed that I dug deep into my cookbooks and I decided to start using them!

Here is the recipe from the book:

Portobello Mushroom Pizza

Prep/Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Serves 4

Items Needed:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup spinach, washed and chopped, finely
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons, black olives, drained & sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 medium size portobello mushrooms
  • Light oil as needed
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet and add the onion. Saute for 4 minutes or until soft. Add the spinach, tomatoes, garlic and olives. Continue to saute for about 3 minutes longer.
  • Add oregano, basil, salt, pepper and mix well. Remove from heat.
  • Preheat the broiler and prepare the mushrooms by removing the stems and wiping off any dirt. Brush or spray the mushroom with light oil and place on a cookie sheet. Broil on each side for 4 minutes or until soft. Remove from the heat and fill with the vegetable mixture, Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and return to the broiler for another 4 to 5 minutes. Serve hot.
