Today is Mmmmm Monday! We all love good food but also know that we need to eat foods that are good for our bodies, so it's amazing when we can put amazing food creations together that not only taste amazing but help you get in your nutrients for the day! I had seen portabello mushroom "pizzas" on pinterest before, but had never made one until last Saturday night... Throwing caution (aka. recipes) to the winds. I decided to blaze my own trail, and throw grilled chicken into the mix! The result = AMAZING
Here's what you need to make your own "pizza's". 1 serving = 1 medium portabello pizza. Recipe for 2 portabello caps.
1/3c. low sugar marinara sauce. I like homemade or the sauce from Walmart's new organic line
2/3 c. part skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 c. shredded grilled chicken
1 tbsp. freshly torn oregano
2 tsp parmesan cheese
2 tbsp olive oil
Drizzle de-stemmed portabello caps in olive oil and bake in oven on 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Roast for 15 minutes. Spoon sauce onto underside of caps. Layer mozzarella, parmesan, oregano, and then chicken, and place in oven to bake for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven, then allow to cool and voila!
This recipe was so yummy, and so filling when eaten with a mixed greens salad! The vitamin D, protein, calcium, and healthy fats in the recipe make it amazing for a filling meal without leaving one feeling heavy!
