Portobello Mushroom Pizza

 

Sometimes, I’m just not in the mood for the heavy feeling that pizza crust can leave behind after enjoy a couple slices.  Using alternatives like pita bread, flatbread, or zucchini definitely helps but this time I decided to use portobello mushroom caps!  Oh man… these were good and gone in about 5 minutes!  Now I just need to learn to practice mindful eating techniques like SLOWING down and savoring each bite!  It was just too good!

A delicious alternative to pizza crust! Ditch the extra carbs and opt for a hearty vegetable like portobello mushroom caps instead. I didn't list quantities for the toppings because I always find that to be subjective. Some people enjoy a lot of sauce, some less, some like cheese, some don't, some want more tomatoes, etc. So I will give you the basic framework and you can make it come to life the way YOU like! Sound good?
