Portobello Pizzas

These keto-friendly portobello pizzas are so good you won't give a second thought to their carb-laden counterparts. The portobello mushrooms serve as a delicious and savory "crust" for the cheese and pepperoni. Even your non-keto friends will love these.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps, stems removed
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup marinara/spaghetti sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
  • 20 slices pepperoni
  • 4 basil leaves, sliced thinly

PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove the gills from the portobello mushrooms, toss or drizzle with the olive oil, and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Then, lay portobellos on a baking pan open side up.
  2. Scoop ¼ cup of sauce into each portobello cap. Mix the two cheeses together in a bowl and sprinkle generously (about ¾ cup) into each portobello. Top each pizza with 5 pieces of pepperoni.
  3. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the mushrooms are soft and the cheese is bubbly and golden brown. Garnish with extra Parmesan and sliced basil.
