A Guilt-Free
Spin On Pizza

Everyone loves pizza but it's not the healthiest option on the menu until now! Portobello mushrooms replace the pizza crust which is then stuffed with all of our favorite toppings. Never ever feel guilty about eating pizza again.

Portabella mushroom pizzas

Portobello mushrooms can sometimes seem a little weird due to their massive size but don't let the looks of these gems scare your away. Using these large mushroom caps as the basis for our pizza is not only super healthy its low calorie and low carb. You can mix and match any toppings you desire, creating your own stuffed mushroom pizzas. For a unique idea try replacing the tomato sauce with fresh pesto!

Stuffed portobello mushroom pizza recipe

Serves 6


  • 6 portobello mushroom caps, washed and dried with stems removed
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (you can use your favorite jarred pasta sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/4 cup sliced mini sweet peppers
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • Cherry tomatoes, sliced (use what you feel is a desirable amount for each pizza)
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced (package sizes vary from 5-8 ounces, just use what you feel is necessary for each pizza)
  • Fresh basil for garnish (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian seasonings, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the mushroom, cap side up, on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the mushrooms from the oven and spoon the tomato sauce into the center of each mushroom cap. Top with cheese, sliced tomatoes, olives, sliced peppers, minced red onion and garlic. Bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden.
  3. Garnish each pizza with fresh basil and Italian seasonings and serve immediately.

I would love it if food blogs could all put a 'printable' version in their recipes. I hate finding a great recipe and then not being able to print it unless I copy and paste all the pieces (especially when there are dozens of nice pictures I have to delete) to Word to print it out to use it. There are loads of add-ons for bloggers to use but very few do it. Odd. But at least this recipe is easy enough to remember and I won't have to bother printing it.

I hate giving up my Friday tradition of delicious pizza, but it's been a struggle with the New Years Resolutions! This is the perfect compromise, and it looks amazing! Thanks for sharing such a great recipe! -Shannon

Looks yummy, since portobello mushrooms can be kind of pricey I think that I might try to make this with regular mushrooms as some sort of casserole. Thanks for the inspiration!!
