P1090882Lunch: portobello pizza recipe.  Check.

Delicious?  Check.

Enjoyed without the scrutinizing gaze and looks of disgust from the fungal-phobes…CHECK.

The truth is, my husband and kids wouldn’t touch this with a ten foot pole, and would make all sorts of death wails and moans of despair if I even attempted to serve this as dinner.  Their loss.  And this is why I love that there are so many little ‘just for one’ recipes in my Trim Healthy Mama book.  Sometimes it’s nice to enjoy a little solitary treat.

If you’re not sure about where you stand on the whole mushroom issue, then please allow me to make a plea on behalf of the portobello.  She is not slimy and gross and…slimy like her smaller cousins.  The large portobellos have a thick cap that has been compared to the texture of a steak.  The flavor, of course, is earthy in a very pleasant way.  And if you top them with enough cheese, then they are AMAZING!

I grilled mine, and they were beautiful and slightly smoky and like this…


So, this week on Trim Healthy Tuesday, I’ll share this yummy grilled portobello pizza recipe with you!

Disclaimer: this is a pretty heavy S meal.  I will do this from time to time if I’ve been naughty and have gone too long between meals, or skipped a meal, and food no longer sounds good.  I’ll make a little feast of a heavy S meal, and get myself back on track.  It’s kinda fun to juggle the heavy S meal from time to time!

This portobello pizza recipe is the perfect instant crust for mini-pizzas.  They’re TOTALLY easy to do.  In fact, I’m a little embarrassed to even CALL this a ‘recipe’ but hey…you’re making it from scratch, so it totally counts.  If you don’t have a grill handy, you can also use your broiler.

Please don’t miss out on all of the great Trim Healthy Tuesday links right below this printable portobello pizza recipe.

Jump over and say hello to Stacy over at Stacy Makes Cents…she’s making a lovely omlette with a secret ingredient.  (It’s not mushrooms)

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Portobello mushrooms make an amazing low carb pizza base, especially when cooked on the grill! Enjoy this savory and quick S style lunch entree, or use the baby portobellos for mini-appetizers!
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 1
  • 2 large portobello mushrooms
  • garlic salt or powder or Greek Seasoning blend to taste
  • 2 T. pizza sauce
  • ⅓ c. mozzarella cheese
  • 6 slices Turkey pepperoni
  • toppings of your choice
  1. Preheat your grill on medium heat.
  2. Using a small knife, cut around right at the base of the stem, and pop it off.
  3. If desired, the ribs of the mushroom may be scraped out with a spoon to make more room for toppings.
  4. Grill the mushrooms for 5-8 minutes stem-side down.
  5. Remove from grill, flip stem side up, and sprinkle with Greek seasoning and spices of your choice.
  6. Spoon 1 T of pizza sauce on each mushroom.
  7. Top with a few tablespoons of mozzarella cheese and pizza toppings of your choice.
  8. Transfer pizzas back to grill, and cook for an additional 8-10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
If you don't have a grill, you can also use your broiler, on low heat.
