Portobello Mushroom Pizza Cups Recipe

Portobello Mushroom Pizza Cups Recipe

Making stuffed portobellos for guys watching a hockey game was quite an endeavor. I made two dozen for six guys, and as the game got more exciting, they screamed for more. Scraping the gills from the underside of the mushroom is easy if you use a small teaspoon, gently, so as not to crack the cap. The amount of cheese, pepperoni and spices is entirely up to whatever satisfies your team. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, Ontario

"an excellent dish for mushroom lovers! quick and easy. some of my mushrooms were about 4" across, so they weren't as "stuffed", but they were still great. i didn't use quite as much italian seasoning and i cut back on the pepperoni and the cheese."
