Portobella Pesto Pizza {YUM!!}


Ultra gourmet pizza for a fast food price!!
We love pizza at our house but sometimes I get really sick of making red sauce spleen cheese or pepperoni pizzas so I decided I wanted to update the little bit with something a little bit more gourmet and grown up!
You’ll be surprised your kids will love it
You can either cook it in the oven or on the grill today I decided to cook it in the oven because it’s snowing outside
Makes 2 Pizzas:
  • 4 – 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 to 3  Portabella mushrooms
  • one small onion
  • a half a cup per pizza with pesto sauce (Either homemade or store-bought will work perfect for this pizza)
  • a cup of the Parmesan and Romano cheese per pizza (I like the already shredded cheese)
Pre Heat oven to 425
Step 1: mix dough and set aside
-pizza dough (You can either make homemade pizza dough or buy the boxed “just water” type of pizza dough both will work great for this recipe)
-Sauté portobello mushrooms and onions together in a pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil
-Grease your pan this can be at pizza pan a cookie sheet or even a pizza stone I like my pizzas to be square so I’m using a square cookie sheet
-Roll out dough on your desired pan style. I like my pizza crust very thin so I roll the crust to all the edges…poke a few holes in the dough {the crust wont bubble and have air pockets}
-After my dough was rolled out I like to add a light coating of extra-virgin olive oil to the top of the crust before I add the toppings
– Cover crust with pesto sauce
– Add toppings
Bake at 425 for 15 – 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly, remove from oven and let sit for a minimum of five minutes before you cut and serve
Mmmmmm Enjoy!!!
Be ready to hand out seconds!!!
