Recipe: Portobella Pizza Caps

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 15-18 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 2 caps


  • 8 portobella mushroom caps
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups pizza sauce
  • 4 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 2 white button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 32 turkey pepperonis


1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and nonstick cooking spray, and set aside.

2. To prepare the mushroom caps: Remove the gills by gently scraping them out with the tip of a spoon, and discard them. They are not harmful to eat, but removing them will result in more space for the pizza filling.

3. Place the caps gill-side up (gills removed) on the prepared baking sheet.

4. Layer each cap with ¼ cup of sauce, ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning, ¼ cup cheese, evenly distributed green bell pepper, onions, mushroom slices, and 4 pepperonis.

5. Bake for 15-18 minutes until the mushroom cap is tender and the cheese is melted.
