When I’m in the mood for a tasty and satisfying dinner, nothing hits the spot quite like portobello mushroom pizza. This savory dish is packed with flavor, thanks to its rich portobello mushroom base and gooey cheese topping (I made mine dairy-free).

Portobello mushrooms are a great choice because they have a firm texture and deep, earthy flavor, while also being low in carbs. When I’m eating keto I love to make this keto portobello mushroom pizza, almond flour pizza crust, or ground chicken pizza crust. They all keep my carbs low and my tummy full!

I love portobello pizzas.

I love easy meals. These pizzas reminded me of the mini pizzas my mom used to make for us when we were kids. She would take a hamburger bun or a hot dog bun, slice it in half and we would each put our toppings on it, and then she would put it under the broiler, and voila we would have pizza. 

These are just as awesome and simple. The portobello mushroom requires 5 minutes of roasting first then you put your toppings on and roast for the remainder of the time. I went the extra step of sautéing my veggies.

Mushroom Cap Pizza Topping Ideas

What type of toppings should you put on your portobello mushroom cap pizza? You can add any toppings you want. I made these pizzas dairy-free by skipping the cheese. Add all of your favorite pizza toppings like:

  • mozzarella cheese
  • pepperoni
  • peppers
  • onions
  • mushrooms
  • olives
  • sausage

Portobello Pizza Ingredients

  • a few portobello mushrooms
  • sausage
  • pizza toppings
  • spaghetti sauce or sugar-free pizza sauce
  • salt & pepper

How to Make Portobello Pizza

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Remove the stem of each mushroom, bake for 5 mins on a baking sheet with either olive oil (or another fat) brushed on the pan so the mushroom doesn’t stick or parchment paper.

If your sausage is uncooked, remove the casing and cook in a frying pan. I added my veggies so they would get the flavor of the sausage.

When 5 minutes is over, take the baking pan out of the oven and place your pizza toppings on the portobello mushroom and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

How to Store Keto Portobello Mushroom Pizza

If you end up with leftover portobello pizzas you can place them in an airtight container and keep them stored in your refrigerator for up to 5 days or in your freezer for up to 3 months.

Simply reheat the pizzas by placing them on a sheet pan with either parchment paper or drizzling oil on the sheet pan and then reheat in your oven, toaster oven, etc at 375 degrees F. until warm and the cheese is bubbling.

  • Salt & Pepper and any additional spices

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Remove the stem of each mushroom, bake for 5 mins on a baking sheet with either olive oil (or another fat) brushed on the pan so the mushroom doesn't stick or parchment paper.

Notes

I prefer the taste of the pizzas roasted on a baking pan with no parchment paper but the cleanup is more time consuming.

Small portobello pizzas you can eat with your hands but large pizzas require cutting.

  1. I’m going to have to make these, since I’v been back on a pizza kick with Udi’s, and not only are they expensive to eat often, they are super carby. I’ve made “pizzas” on zucchini slices this way, but I love mushrooms and since the bottom of a cap curves up and toppings are less likely to run out, I HAVE to do this. In fact, I see this as a regular thing in my future.

    Anyway, this inspired me to share my general pizza sauce recipe:

    I make pizza sauce by sauteing a finely minced onion in oil of choice until very soft, then in goes the garlic. Something about the really soft onions helps with the texture and thickness. Next, a can of crushed tomatoes and whatever herbs I’m in the mood for (if any, but a pinch of marjoram covers the same spectrum as oregano, basil, and rosemary combined in my book). As it cooks down on low-med heat, I decide if it needs salt or a little bit of some kind of natural sweetener (no batch of tomatoes is the same) and usually some balsamic vinegar to round it out. Since I usually just cook for myself, I freeze the leftovers in small bags in small portions. I lay they flat in the freezer so I an break off pieces to use as needed.
