Vegan Portobello Pizza Recipe

(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.
