Mushroom pizza is probably one of my favorite indulgent dishes and I am constantly on the look out for ways to transform old favorites into something I can eat more often. After watching a cooking show that featured stuffed portabello mushrooms, the idea hit me that I could easily turn a portabello into a mini pizza and thus created this simple dish. It is a great snack or meal with a salad and for only 1 point per pizza. It is also really easy to create lots of variations by changing up the sauce and toppings.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Clean the mushroom and spray with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt and pepper . Place on a piece of tin foil or small baking sheet and bake for about 6 minutes.
Take the mushroom out of the oven and add the sauce, cheese, and whatever toppings you choose.
Return the pizza mushroom to the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until the cheese begins to bubble on the top. These also keep fairly well, so sometimes I make more than one and keep them on hand for a quick lunch or snack during the week.
