- 6 large portobello mushrooms
- 1 14 oz. can crushed tomatoes
- 1 small jar or can of your favorite pizza sauce (This will not all be used).
- 1/2 cup part skim mozzarella
- any other toppings you like on pizza. My favorite is chicken.

Remove the stem and gills from mushrooms. Place on a baking sheet, flat side down, and bake at 350° for about 8 minutes or until slightly cooked. While mushrooms are baking, mix about 3/4 cup of crushed tomatoes with 1/4 cup of pizza sauce. Pizza sauce tends to be high sugar, so mixing it with the tomatoes gives you the same flavor with less sugar.
Remove mushrooms from the oven and fill with crushed tomato/pizza sauce mixture and top with your favorite toppings and about 1 Tablespoon mozzarella per pizza. Return to oven for about 5 minutes or until heated throughout. You can finish by broiling if you want to brown the cheese.

This is an opportunity to be creative, so make it your own. You can add a sprinkle of Italian seasoning, use low-fat sausage, or add goat cheese instead of mozzarella. These pizzas are a great way to get your “pizza fix” in without going way over on calories.
