If you are a pizza lover, it’s a great way to incorporate the same aromas into a new dish. Use large bella or cremini mushrooms with good-size caps to hold the stuffing. We suggest you snatch one of these before you serve because these will be gone in under 5 minutes!

Ingredients list for the Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

  • 12 whole baby bella or cremini mushrooms
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 3.5 oz (100g) ham
  • 2 balls mozzarella cheese
  • Grated parmesan
  • Dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper

Method

1. Preheat oven to 390°F (200°C).

2. Wipe clean the mushrooms with a damp towel and remove the stem. Scrape out any of the gills to increase the cavity space. Put in a baking dish, bottom side up. Pre-cook in oven for 10 minutes to drain mushrooms from their first water. Flip and cook for 5 min more. Mushrooms become less watery and decrease in volume.

3. Meanwhile , sauté the chopped onion and crushed garlic in a skillet with little oil. Chop the mushroom stems into small pieces and add to the skillet, until golden. Stir in the tomato paste and 2 glasses of water. Let simmer to reduce and season with salt, pepper and oregano.

4. Cut the ham and mozzarella into small pieces.

5. Re-arrange the mushrooms caps in a baking dish, stuff with the filling, complete with ham, and top with mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan and bake for 20 minutes at 390°F (200°C).
