Low Carb Portobello Pizzas Ingredients
The star of the pizza is the portobello mushrooms. But the sauce is the next important recipe. Our goal is to make a healthier version of pizza that fits into low carb diets. You will need to use sugar-free pizza sauce or marinara sauce.
It is important that you find the right sauce, or else this recipe will not be as healthy. You can get a little crazy with the cheese, though.
This recipe calls for mozzarella cheese, but you can switch it up, mix it up, or do whatever you’d like with the cheese. Then we have the toppings. You could go crazy with toppings, but we are keeping this healthy and low carb. Stick with spinach, olives, and pepperoni or sausage.
That will make for a great low carb pizza.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Wash the mushrooms and remove the stems. It is important to thoroughly dry the mushrooms after you wash them. Mushrooms release liquid when they cook, and that will leave you with a soggy pizza crust. Be sure to pat the mushrooms dry on both sides with paper towels before you add toppings.
Place the mushrooms bottom side up on the cookie sheet and evenly spread the sauce onto each.
Sprinkle the mozzarella over each mushroom. Then add your toppings.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is starting to brown.
Remove from the oven and let the pizzas cool for 5 minutes before serving.
