I made this appetizer in anticipation of Labor Day weekend. It’s super easy and tasty. It’s also a great way to enjoy pizza while cutting down on the carbs.
It’s best to use larger mushrooms so you have more surface area to work with. Costco sells the oversized mushrooms for a really good price. I used brown bella mushrooms.
I got the idea after seeing it on Table for Two’s instagram. I’ve also seen versions with zucchini and other vegetables.
I always get mushrooms on my pizza, so this was the best of both worlds. If you let them cool a little, you can easily pop these into your mouth in one bite. I was worried the soup that pooled up from the cooked mushrooms might be a problem, but it still tasted delicious with it.
Shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350F. Wash mushrooms and remove stems. Fill mushrooms with shredded cheese and top with 3-4 mini pepperonis. Place on baking sheet. Bake for approximately 10-15 minutes until mushrooms are cooked. Serve immediately.
