Paleo Portobello Pizza = Foodgasm

If you're at all like me, no pizza will ever do that is not loaded with mushrooms -- and there are never enough. Well, here at long last is a pizza with sufficient mycological content. It's paleo, too. And, seriously, FOODGASM. Like Harry Met Sally, only there is no fakery. Check it out.

This recipe makes just one pizza to serve one person.

1 whole portobello mushroom, stem removed
Garlic oil spray (we didn't have any of this, so we made do with a little vegetable oil with some garlic powder mixed in)
1 T tomato sauce
2 T shredded mozzerella cheese
Other toppings as you like (we used chopped black olives and artichoke hearts)


1. Heat oven to 425°. Spray or brush both sides of mushroom with garlic oil and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes or until fork-tender, turning over once halfway through baking. Remove mushroom from oven and increase heat to broil.

2. Turn mishroom gill-side up and top with sauce and cheese and other toppings as you would an ordinary pizza crust. Place under broiler for 1 minute or until cheese melts and bubbles. Enjoy!

Big hat tip to My Own Dear Personal Mom (@Casherr on Twitter), who found this recipe in, of all things, an Atkins Diet ad in a magazine.
