This vegan portabello pizza recipe is a healthier take on pizza … made with portobello mushrooms as the “crust.”
Experiment with your favorite toppings!
● 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.
