Portobello Mushroom Pizzas from ADandeLife cookbook
Yes we did! My daughter is gluten free for everyone's sanity but needs pizza. These portobello mushroom pizzas came out great! I created this recipe on the fly and it worked. Go moms! Portobellos release a lot of liquid when baked so the trick to keeping the filling tender and crispy is to add a mixture of almond flour and Parmesan cheese after your sauce base.
This recipe is easy to make to your own tastes. More or less cheese or sauce.
Also, be sure to clean your mushrooms with a damp towel. Submerging them in water is no Bueno! They will become rubbery weirdness.
Anyway. Here ya go:
4- large portobello mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed.
2 tbs - olive oil
1 cup - marinara sauce
1 cup - pesto sauce
½ cup - finely grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup - almond flour
1 cup - mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 450.
Lightly score the caps side and brush with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place them cap side down on a cookie sheet lined with foil or nonstick baking mat.
Mix almond flour and Parmesan cheese together in a small bowl. Spread marinara sauce on the inside of 2 mushrooms. Then spread pesto on remaining 2 mushrooms. Divide and spread almond and cheese mixture evenly among the 4 mushrooms. Then top all with mozzarella cheese.
Place them in the oven 12-15 minutes or until the cheese bubbly brown.
Remove from oven and let them sit for 5 mins.
Serve and enjoy.
