Portabella mushroom "pizzas"...ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!


#1

These are delicious and can be eaten by anyone following a low-carb or low-calorie diet.

Ingredients:

4 portabella mushroom caps
4-5 cups cooked spinach (squeezed well to get all water out)
2 cups crumbled Feta cheese (or as much as you like)
2 cups mozzarella cheese (fresh can be used, too)
1 cup Parmesan, Asiago, or Romano cheese (can use mixture of all three)
2 eggs beaten
1 tbsp. dill
salt & pepper to taste

Remove stumps from mushroom caps. Wipe mushrooms with damp cloth or paper towel. Spray rectangular glass baking dish with canola oil spray or olive oil spray. Place mushroom caps in baking dish with gill side up.

Mix spinach, eggs, Feta cheese, dill, salt & pepper in a bowl until mixed well. Spoon mixture into mushroom caps so evenly distributed. Sprinkle with Parmesan, Asiago, or Romano cheese. Top with mozzarella cheese.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes or until cheese on top is bubbly and a little brown. Let sit for 10-15 minutes. Delicious!

*Variations: *You can saute onions, garlic, scallions, or any other vegetable in olive oil and then add to spinach mixture.

Almost any vegetable can be used in this recipe, but spinach is the best and most filling.

[/quote]Sounds great.
Try this.
7 ounces pizza dough
2 tablespoons heavy cream
3 ounces mozzarella shredded
6 thin slices pancetta or ham
1 zucchini, thinly sliced
2 ounces herbed cream cheese

Pat the pizza dough. Spread on the heavy cream, then the mozzarella. Place the pancetta slices on so there is pancetta on each slice of pizza. Finally add the zucchini and chunks of the cream cheese. Slide the pizza into oven and bake for 8 for 10 minutes.
Stole this from Bobby Flay. Scrumptious.

OMGosh! Sounds awesome! Have you ever had a pizza bianco? It’s delicious. It is a pizza with no tomato sauce. It has olive oil in place of the tomato sauce, you can put spinach or fresh basil leaves on the olive oil. Add thin slices of fresh garlic, sprinkle with combo of parmesan, asiago, and romano cheese, top it all off with loads of mozzarella cheese. Bake in oven for about 20 minutes. I had this in Rochester, NY and got totally hooked!

[/quote]Yep, sure have. Delicious. I always called it Pizza Blanco, until a friend pointed out that they were two different dishes. Similar, but different.
See ya tomorrow. Gotta Go.

Oh…maybe I have the name wrong. Anyway, it’s “white pizza” and it is NOT just for white people!! :rofl:

Yeah, “bianco” is Italian for “white.”
