Bruchetta Portobello Mushroom Pizza

Portobello mushrooms are versatile and make anything taste delicious. My favorite way to cook them is by using them as a "crust" or base for a pizza. For this recipe, I use my Fresh Homemade Salsa to add a special kick of flavor. 




With a spoon, remove stem and gills from portobello mushroom caps. 

Next, mix together a half cup of our Fresh Homemade Salsa, a quarter cup of light crumbled feta cheese, and 2 slices of diced turkey bacon. 


Fill mushroom caps with mixture and top mushrooms with one quarter cup of shredded light mozzarella cheese (eighth cup per mushroom).


Create foil rings and place on a baking sheet lined with foil. The foil rings will prevent the mushrooms from getting soggy and will allow them to roast more evenly. Place mushroom caps on foil rings and bake for 20-25 minutes at 375°F. 


Take them out of the oven and serve!
