Portabella mushroom caps stay firm enough to easily hold heavy ingredients, but have the rich, velvety texture you just want to sink your teeth into.
For that reason, they make a great meat replacement, even for diehard meat lovers. While this recipe is not vegetarian because I love to top it with pepperoni, you could easily turn it into a vegetarian portabella mushroom recipe by omitting the pepperoni.
I think the texture and versatility of the portabella mushroom also surprise a lot of people who claim they don’t like mushrooms.
I’ve made these for a few friends who scrunch up their nose at the idea of eating mushrooms and, surprise, they loved them! I bet this will be the first of many portabella mushroom recipes they make!
I like to make this portabella pizzas when I’m in a rush or want something filling but not heavy for dinner. If I’m making these for my husband or friends, I’ll make a quick side salad to serve with them.
If you don’t want to heat up your kitchen, you can also make grilled portabella mushrooms! Follow the same instructions as baked, but preheat the grill to medium-high heat and place on indirect grates. Close the cover for 3-4 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
In the summertime, making these as grilled portabella mushrooms is actually my preference. They are ready just as quickly and I just love having a few moments outside to grill.

Tools for making low carb Portabella Pizza:

Grapefruit spoon– I find this to be the easiest way to remove the ribs from a portabella mushroom cap.

Spread 1 tablespoon of marinara in each mushroom cap, top with a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese and a healthy dose of pepperoni. Top with more marinara and mozzarella.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove and top with parsley. Serve hot.
