Low Carb Portobello Pizzas

portobello shrooms

Portobello mushrooms substitute carb-loaded pizza crust for a guilt-free, delicious twist on your favorite cheat meal.


4  large Portobello mushrooms
1 cup  marinara sauce
2 cups  spinach
1 cup  grated part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp  olive oil
12  slices pepperoni
1/3 cup  chopped olives
1/4 cup  fresh basil, torn


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Remove mushroom stems and scrape out the dark gills under the mushroom caps with a spoon. Lightly coat mushroom caps with oil.
  2. Form 4 small aluminum foil rings and place them on a baking sheet. Place mushroom caps, top side down, on foil rings. (This prevents sogginess.) Bake for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and spread sauce on mushrooms. Top with spinach, cheese, pepperoni and olives. Bake for an additional 7 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Serve garnished with basil.
