Portabello Mushroom Pizzas – WLS Recipe


Portabello Mushroom Pizzas // Weight Loss Surgery Recipes // Food Coach Me

After having such success with my Loaded Pizza on Cauliflower Crust, I decided to give another low-carb pizza recipe a go!

Portabello mushrooms are the large mushrooms that are great for having a “stuffed mushroom” as a dinner choice. Any recipe you have for stuffed mushroom can be made a bigger scale, still small enough for one, but not the small appetizer sizes you’re used to.

For this recipe, I used my Pampered Chef Microwave Egg Cooker. The deep wells were perfect for sitting my mushrooms. You can use a baking sheet lined with foil as well.


I browned the ground chicken meat with a  few spices first. Then layered the ingredients in the mushrooms. Baked and voila! All the flavors of pizza in a stuffed mushroom! Delish! And less work than the cauliflower crust…which is worth the work…but I was thankful for a faster recipe :)
