Today's recipe features one of my favorite vegetables, mushrooms!

I love pretty much every type of mushroom, especially portobello. I love them raw in salads, sautéed, baked, grilled on a kabob or any other way they're prepared.

These portobello mushroom pizzas are absolutely amazing! They're super easy to make, ready in less than 30 minutes and so easy to change up with your favorite pizza ingredients.

Meatless meals are some of my favorite and we eat them quite often, but if you're a meat lover, definitely add some to these pizzas.

My boyfriend insisted these are just as good as any regular pizza and with the beefy mushroom flavor from the portobellos, you don't even miss the traditional crust.

The fresh herbs sprinkled on top add the most amazing flavor. I just love the combo of resh basil and parsley on so many recipes.

I used large portobellos in this recipe and found them in the bulk bin at Fresh Thyme. If you only have smaller mushrooms available at your grocery store, go ahead and double the amount that you use to end up with the same amount of servings.

I'm really trying to watch my weight gain now that I'm in my 26th week of pregnancy, so these pizzas will make a regular appearance on our dinner menu so I won't get tempted with regular pizza so often!

I hope your family enjoys these as much as we did! Thanks for stopping by!

What is in Veggie Portobello Mushroom Pizza?

  • Bell pepper: The bell pepper comes in different colors including red, yellow, orange, green, white, and purple. Red peppers have the most nutrition, because they've been on the vine longest. Green peppers are harvested earlier, before they have a chance to turn yellow, orange, and then red. Red bell peppers have almost 11 times more beta-carotene and 1.5 times more vitamin C than green.
  • Portobello mushroom: These mushrooms are large in size and have a rounded, flat cap that is connected to a thick stem. When cooked, portobello mushrooms have a chewy and beefy meaty texture and a smoky, earthy flavor. When they are not fully grown, Portobellos are picked as a white round, button-shaped mushroom and referred to as Crimini, Bella or Baby Bella. 
  • Fresh tomatoes: They are technically a fruit since they have seeds, but are prepared or served as a vegetable in savory dishes. They contain lycopene, which has great health benefits, vitamin c, potassium and folate. They are served fresh or cooked and can be roasted, canned, dehydrated or frozen for use later.
  • Fresh Basil: Also called sweet basil and is an annual herb in the mint family. It's a great source of vitamin k, vitamin a, magnesium and iron. It has a sweet smell with a peppery taste.
  • Fresh parsley: This herb is not just a garnish! It has a robust, fresh flavor and is great in salads, sauces, marinades, soups and more! It has vitamin k which is needed for blood and bone health.
