Portobello Pizza

Mmm…pizza. It doesn’t really matter what kind of toppings or what style it is, pizza is downright delicious. The only problem is the calorie count. With all of the carbs and fat, pizza is a dish that, unfortunately, can’t really be enjoyed every night. When it comes to the portobello pizza, it’s a whole new game. Instead of carb filled crust, you now have a giant, tasty mushroom. Plus it’s topped mainly with mozzarella, a low fat cheese. Although the amount of cheese is up to you, no matter what combination of ingredients you place on top of the grilled portobello, your pizza loving taste buds will not be disappointed.
