Portobello Pizzas Recipe

Portobello Pizzas Recipe

Portobello mushroom caps are the creative "crust" in this upscale spin on pizza. I also cut the caps into wedges and serve them as an appetizer.—Lisa Scheevel, LeRoy, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 6 large portobello mushrooms (4 to 4-1/2 inches), stems removed
