“I love Portobella mushrooms! This recipe is super easy and is a great rotation to my lunch meals! I change up the recipe a little. I add black forest ham, mushrooms and tomatoes, and my husband requests pineapple on his. The combinations are endless! Super easy, fast and healthy!”– Susan, Resident Mom, May 2015



Recipe: Portobella Pizza Caps

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 15-18 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Serving size: 2 caps


  • 8 portobella mushroom caps
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups pizza sauce
  • 4 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups reduced-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 2 white button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 32 turkey pepperonis


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line a baking sheet with foil and nonstick cooking spray, and set aside.
  2. To prepare the mushroom caps: Remove the gills by gently scraping them out with the tip of a spoon, and discard them. They are not harmful to eat, but removing them will result in more space for the pizza filling.
  3. Place the caps gill-side up (gills removed) on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Layer each cap with ¼ cup of sauce, ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning, ¼ cup cheese, evenly distributed green bell pepper, onions, mushroom slices, and 4 pepperonis.
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes until the mushroom cap is tender and the cheese is melted.
