Mushroom Pizza Bites

We love having parties at our house.  The thing I don’t love is all of the unhealthy food at a party and the way I feel afterward if I indulge.  It is always nice to have healthy appetizers and snacks at a party to enjoy while also enjoying hanging out with friends and family. These pizza bites use mushrooms as the ‘crust’ making them gluten free!  The fun part about these is that everyone can choose their own toppings and your kids can help assemble their own mini pizza.

 First step – remove the inside of your mushrooms with a spoon.  Be carful not to crack the cap.  Then after you have rinsed the mushrooms,  (I wiped mine down with a damp cloth) bake at 400 for 7 minutes.  If they get a little juicy inside, pour the juice off.

Next prepare your toppings.  Our topping choices:

  • Pineapple
  • Red and Green Bell Pepper
  • Zucchini
  • Olives
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Canadian Bacon
  • Mini Pepperoni
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Pizza Sauce

Next assemble your pizzas! We put a spoonful of sauce in the bottom of each mushroom, then cheese and toppings.  Bake in your oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Yum! This seems like one of those “how have I never thought of this” ideas. We love mushrooms and we love pizza. I’m super excited to try this.
