Calories: 215
Fat: 14 grams
Net Carb: 7 grams
Protein: 14 grams

Fierce Food Facts: This recipe has your B Vitamins covered along with some Vitamin A, E and K! The cheeses and the dark green leafy vegetables provide calcium, phosphorus, and zinc, which are helpful for building strong bones!



Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place mushrooms stem side up on a baking sheet. Lightly drizzle olive oil in the base of the mushroom, spread evenly with the back of a spoon or your fingers.

In a small bowl, combine oregano, garlic powder, parsley, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of spice mixture evenly over each mushroom. Fill each mushroom with 2 tablespoons pizza sauce, then chopped vegetables of choice.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese over each pizza, covering vegetables. Bake 10 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and cheese is melted. Remove from oven, top with fresh sliced basil. Serve immediately.

For carbohydrate conscious: Utilize Basil Pesto Cream Sauce (Nourish recipe) in place of pizza sauce to reduce net carbohydrate to 5 grams per serving. Do not use cherry tomatoes.

For dairy-free: Consider Miyoko Creamery Faux Mozzarella (contains cashews) and VioLife Parmesan cheeses in place of dairy
Recipe is already dairy-, egg-, and nut-free

Kids Can Cook Tips: Kids love choice, make a pizza "bar" and bring out a multitude of toppings. "Make Your Own Pizza Bar" is a sure hit at any kids’ party or family gathering! If a child is averse to using the portobello mushroom as a base, encourage them to use a cauliflower pizza shell and try a few small mushroom slices on their pizza.
