Portabello Pizzas

Did you know that pizza is the number one favorite food in America?  It’s not hard to believe– pizza is delicious!

 I like to make interesting, non-traditional pizzas at home.  Mostly, because I figure if I am going to make a pizza that resembles pizza from a chain restaurant, then why not just order it and let someone else do all of the work!  These portabello pizzas are my latest creation, and as part of my Seriously Simple Series they can be prepped, cooked, and served in under 30 minutes!  In addition to being quick, easy, and delicious they are also naturally gluten free and paleo (if that’s what you’re in to). How awesome is that?!  Enjoy!

  1. This was great and filling! I did sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top. I would add the garlic powder on the tomato/onion layer. I think the flavor got lost in the balsamic. Thanks for sharing, Kelsey! Marybeth

    1. I’m glad you tried them!! That’s a good idea about the garlic. Also, I tone down my true garlic amount in every recipe I post since I use copious amounts at home, but that isn’t for everyone and I would hate for someone to take the time to try one of my recipes and gag on all of the garlic! But if you are a garlic lover too, then when in doubt, always add more garlic! Thanks for the feedback!
