Pesto Portobello Mini Pizzas

We all know those nights when all you want is a movie and pizza.  These portobello mini-pizzas will do just the trick! Just stack your favorite pizza toppings on a portabello mushroom, and 20 minutes later…wah-lah! Portobello pizzas. This goes great as an appetizer, as the filling for a sandwich, or with a side of pasta.

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and add the portabello mushrooms tops down onto the baking sheet, with the insides facing up. Pulse the basil, walnuts, parmesan, and olive oil into a pesto. Salt to taste and spread evenly onto mushroom bottoms. Layer with chopped tomatoes, and shredded mozzarella and bake for 20 minutes. Adjust for salt, as needed and enjoy with red pepper flakes.

The versatility of these portobello mini-pizzas will never leave you bored.  Try different cheeses such as burrata or ricotta.  Maybe spice it up with some fresh herbs. Try out some basil, parsley, or oregano. You can even add any of your favorite vegetables like peppers, onions, spinach, you name it!  What types of combos can you make with this? As always, let us know in the comments section below! xo
