Portobello Mushroom Pizza

Ingredients and their Calories:
Mushroom (100g) 26 calories
Ham 1oz, 30 calories
Motzerella Cheese, 1/3 cup shredded, 90 calories
White Sauce, 2-3 spoonfuls, 30 calories
Pineapple Chunks, just a few, 20 calories
Total: 196 or close to it

Use one large Portobello Mushroom cap and flip it over. Cut off the stem.  The upside down mushroom cap is the pizza crust.  Genius!

Spread white sauce or tomato sauce or pesto, or whatever sauce you choose. It will drip down into the mushroom. Yum yum yum!

Put the toppings on.  I used a couple of bites of ham and a few chunks of pineapple.  I also love to use tomatoes, spinach, bell peppers.

Cover with cheese. Sprinkle some Italian seasoning on top for taste.

Place it on foil and curl the edges of the foil up to catch any mushroom juice. Bake till done. I usually put it in the convection oven for 15 - 20 mins at 425. 

I just love this little pizza. It tastes great and the kids do not want a single bite!  How often can a mama enjoy a meal all by herself? This is one of those rare meals that does not get toddler slobber in it while you are eating. Gotta love that little bonus!

Another bonus: hardly any calories.  Probably burn off all the calories just chewing and swallowing.  This of course means you can have 6 soft peanut butter cookies for desert. Now, those you will have to share with the runts.

That sounds good, but you would really need to like mushrooms.

Emily said "doesn't sound bad!". Alycia just laughed. Betty said "It would be good except for all the mushrooms." Janice said "That sounds really good, and it's right, her kids wouldn't eat it except for Jessie. She eats anything and would help her Mom. Besides she really loves mushrooms." I say "Can we have some when I come to visit?"

This is so entertaining! I love the recipe! LOL, does it taste as exciting as it is to read about it?
