Vegan Portobello Pizzas 🍕

This is a healthier take on pizza … made with portobello mushrooms as the “crust.”

Experiment with your favorite toppings! 

TIP: Keep any leftover vegan “cheese” in a covered container in the fridge for other recipes. Delicious!

🍄Vegan Portobello Pizzas 🍄

(serves 4)

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
  • 3/4 cup veggies or other favorites pizza toppings (diced onions, peppers, olives, etc)

For the “cheese” topping:

  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp sea salt

Preheat your oven to 400ºF/200ºC. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Clean the mushrooms and remove the stems, and brush both sides with a small amount of olive oil, placing them on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning over the top, and bake for 5-8 minutes.

While they are precooking, prepare the cheese topping: place the nuts, nutritional yeast, and salt in a food processor and pulse until it turns into a parmesan-like consistency. 

Remove the mushrooms from the oven and top with pizza sauce, toppings, and a sprinkle of vegan cheese. Place back in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the toppings are tender.
