Mini Pizza Appetizers
These mini pizza appetizers are a healthy take on a classic comfort food. ($1.28 per serving)
- 6 small portobello mushroom caps
- 2 tbs olive oil
- Salt to taste
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 3/4 cup grated mozzarella
- 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
- 1 tbs fresh basil
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Brush the portobello mushrooms with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt to taste. Place the mushrooms in a single layer on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet. Cook in the 425 degree oven for 5 to 10 minutes, or until they’re beginning to get tender. (The wire rack keeps the mushrooms from getting soggy. Timing will vary according to the size of the mushrooms.)
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and top the mushrooms with pizza sauce, cheese, and cherry tomatoes.
Return the mushrooms to the oven and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with fresh basil and serve.
