Pizza night comes around once a week at our house…on Friday. It signals the end of the week and everyone looks forward to it. At this point: Pizza = Fun.

It’s amazing how food associations can be so easily cemented. I love pizza too. But, I could do without all the carbs at the end of the day.

There are plenty of ways to make healthier versions of pizza, but this is by far my favorite. Serve it as an appetizer and I guarantee that you will eat a lot less traditional pizza.

Since mushrooms are filling and low-cal, you can feel good eating as many as you want. 🙂

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms Step-by-Step

Follow these tips for the perfect pizza on a shroom.

A small measuring spoon scooping out the inside of the mushroom.

Brush dirt off the mushrooms with a damp towel or scrub brush. For best results, do not put them under running water. Mushrooms absorb water very easily. Pop out the stem and scoop out the membranes in the middle. A small measuring spoon is a perfect size for small mushrooms.

Juices pooling in baked mushroom cap.

Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the outsides of the mushrooms with olive oil. Bake in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for about 10 minutes.  The mushrooms should be tender, but still firm. Pour the juices that pools in the center of each mushroom out before filling it with pizza sauce and toppings.

Add your favorite sauce to the center of the mushroom. The amount will vary depending upon the size of the mushroom and how much you like sauce.

Prep your toppings. My new obsession is chiffonading spinach. Stack 4 or 5 spinach leaves, roll them and then use cooking shears (or a knife) to cut the stack into thin strips.

Place spinach strips on top of the sauce and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Other topping ideas for mushroom pizza bites: tomato (diced or a slice from a cherry-sized one) onion, peppers, sliced or diced pepperoni, ham, pineapple…just about any topping works.
