Portobello Pizzas

Last night I made an awesome bolognese sauce, but it’s awful hard to make a small amount. So for tonight’s meal I had this idea to use up some more of the sauce. I went to the farmers market and got some beautiful Portobello mushrooms along with a bunch of arugula. So here’s what I’m thinking.

First I start by heating up the sauce on low heat so it doesn’t burn.  Then I heat up my indoor grill pan so it’s really hot. While this is going on I start cleaning  the 6 portobellos by removing the stem and gills from underneath. I brush the tops with a damp towel and get them ready for a spa rub, on both sides, of olive oil and black pepper. I don’t salt them yet because I want them to brown on the grill, not steam. After they get those beautiful grill marks and have caramelized, then I will sprinkle them with some Kosher salt. This whole thing takes, just a few minutes on each side to get this color and the grill marks.

As the mushrooms and sauce are doing their thing. I slice up some fresh Mozzarella cheese along with grabbing a bunch of my cleaned and dried arugula leaves. I remove the mushrooms from the heat and get them ready for their cheese topping.

Next I have my oven on broil to get the cheese nice and melted, and bubbling brown on the top.

Now to spoon on some of that sauce. Listen, you could totally make this meat free with your own sauce, or even a good jar sauce from the store. I’m not being shy with the sauce either. Big spoonfuls please! Finally I top the sauce with that fresh peppery arugula and a sprinkling of Kosher salt. These pizzas are a lot lighter and healthier then having all that pizza dough. Don’t get me wrong I love pizza dough, but once and a while eating a bit healthier can’t be a bad thing.
