Meatless Monday: Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Happy Meatless Monday friends!

On Wednesday I promised an awesome stuffed mushroom recipe and here it is!!  Hope you enjoy!

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms
(Print this recipe!)

4 Portobello mushrooms (you could also do this with baby bellas)
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 bell pepper, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup of your favorite pizza or pasta sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella (I like Daiya), plus 1/4 cup for sprinkling on top
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Lightly scrape the gills out of your mushrooms (you don’t have to if you don’t want to, but I find the gills kind of oogey so I like to scrape them out) and wipe them down with a damp towel to clean them.


Sauté onion and bell pepper on medium heat until tender. (I like to sauté my veggies with a little vegetable broth instead of oil!)


Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.

Remove veggies from the heat and place into a bowl with Italian seasoning, sauce, breadcrumbs, and cheese.


Divide the mixture between the mushrooms and sprinkle the tops with a little more cheese.


Bake in the 400 F oven for 45-50 minutes.


We served ours with a big pile of steamed broccoli and some salad!

So. Good.



Mushrooms.  Pizza.  Cheese.  Can’t go wrong there my friends!

Have a great week!



  1. These look so good. I have to be honest and tell you that I’m sort of afraid of the big portobello mushrooms because of the gills. I love the baby bellas, but since I’m fairly new to mushroom-loving in general (didn’t even eat them a year ago!), I’m still wary of different varieties. I’ll pretty much eat anything as a pizza though so I’m going to try this!

    • The gills are totally oogey to me so I always scrape them out, though I’ve heard that you don’t have to. You could totes do this with the baby bellas!!!
