Portabello Mushroom pizza

Portabello Mushroom pizza
Craving a pizza? Worried that its not the healthiest option on menu? Here is the solution. Replace the pizza crust with these meaty large Portabello Mushroom caps to get a super healthy low carb pizza. These awesomely yummy guilt free pizzas can be made with any combination of cheese and toppings.
Sauce -  Tomato sauce or pesto sauce
Cheese - Fresh mozzarella, Feta, Provolone or Gouda.
Toppings - Peppers, pepperoni, olives, onion, etc.       
To make a two bite cocktail version of these use Crimini mushrooms
I have shown below a very basic version. Use any combination from above to customize your own. Bon App├ętit.
