  • 1 3-ounce portobello mushroom, stem removed

  • Oil

  • Salt, to taste

  • Garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon tomato or pizza sauce

  • 1 ounce mozzarella cheese, shredded

  • Toppings (sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, etc.)

  • Seasonings of your choice

  1. Wipe the mushroom with a damp paper towel. Heat a little oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place the mushroom in the hot oil, cap side down, and cook until slightly browned. Flip to cook the gill side until almost tender, but not mushy. Drain on several sheets of paper towel to absorb as much water as possible. Place the mushroom cap, gill side up, on a foil-lined baking sheet; sprinkle with salt and a little garlic powder. Spread the sauce over the mushroom, then top with half of the cheese and the toppings of your choice. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and desired seasonings. Broil about a minute or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

I've been making something like this for years, even before I found out I had Diabetes. It's delicious!
