  • Why do I like it?

I am always looking for a healthier alternative to pizza, this recipe uses mushrooms instead of bready crust.  I found it when had a few portobellos that I wanted to use up so I searched Minimalist Baker, one of my favorite sites.

This recipe is very versatile, you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand to stuff inside the mushroom.  I really liked the technique of seasoning and baking the portobello first, it added a lot of flavor.  This dish looks impressive enough to serve guests.  

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

I didn't have any pizza sauce on hand so I created a tomato basil reduction using canned organic tomatoes and fresh basil (click here for my recipe).  I had some cooked spaghetti squash so I used that in the stuffing, but you can use anything you have on hand.
