Portobello pesto pizza

portobellobThese are super easy and don’t take very long to make or prepare. I used some of my leftover pesto on top at the last minute and it made such a great touch! These are really similar to the mini mushroom pizzettes, just more dinner sized.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • 4 small uncooked spicy chicken sausages
  • 1 small can of sliced olives
  • 1 zucchini
  • Some pizza or pasta sauce
  • Leftover pesto sauce or make a small batch from scratch

Take the mushrooms and remove the stems. Fill them up with the sausage that you squeeze out of its casing. Top with sliced olives, grated zucchini and a dollop of pasta or pizza sauce along with a spoonful of pesto.

Cook for about 20-25 mins at 375.

Stuffed Italian Mushrooms- little mini shroom pizzettes!

These would be an excellent appetizer plate to serve. We just ate them standing up next to the oven. I tried for a sit down, enjoy yourself dinner but these didn’t quite make it to the dinner table.

Super easy and quick and I have a suggestion if you want to make this into more a dinner then an appetizer.

Ingredients:

  • 12 Crimini mushrooms
  • 3/4 lb spicy chicken Italian sausage
  • Organic or low sugar pizza sauce
  • Yup, that’s it!

Take the mushrooms and clean them and take the stem out so your able to stuff the center. Take the chicken sausage and just squeeze it into the center of the mushroom. Bake at 375 for about 18-20 mins. Add the pizza sauce a minute or so before you take them out of the oven. Be careful when you cut into them, they squirt at you!

Another way to make this meal would be to put them in a portobello mushroom. You could even add some black olives, Italian sausage, onions, then pizza sauce and you have your own little portobello pizza!

I just served with a garden salad with whatever veggies I could find in the fridge. With my all time favorite dressing: Olive oil, balsamic, lime juice, salt and pepper. Yum!

Enjoy!

Pizza time! (dairy and grain free of course!)

Okay…minus the cheese

Yes, the food we felt we lost can be made without cheese or flour! Now this isn’t a daily dinner, just a treat when your feeling homesick for some pizza.

Crust:

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 3 tbls olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tbls chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tbls oregano

Mix all the dry ingredients together and then mix the eggs and olive oil together. Mix all ingredients and form into a ball of dough. Now this is extremely sticky, so rolling this out can be tricky! Spread parchment paper on a baking sheet or cookie sheet. Put a little of the almond meal on your hands and spread evenly to about a 1/8 inch thick. (See… sticky!)

Once that is done, put in the oven for about 20 minutes while you are chopping your veggies.

Toppings:

  • Bell peppers
  • Onion
  • Mushrooms
  • Sausage meat
  • Oregano
  • Zucchini
  • Organic Pizza Sauce
  • Small can of sliced olives

I cut the bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and saute them lightly in olive oil just to get them nice and soft. I add pieces of the sausage (packaged Adele’s organic sausage is great, just slice it up and throw it in). Take your crust out of the oven and spread the pizza sauce over it evenly. Add the toppings from the pan and then take your zuchhini and grate it over the pizza like you are grating cheese. Add the sliced olives on top.

Put back in the over for another 20 minutes and enjoy!!
