I saw this recipe posted, and had to make some alterations so that I could eat it. The recipe is the way I altered it...and I am even thinking about trying it in pepper halves instead of mushrooms, since none of my inlaws will eat mushrooms!

    each, garlic powder, ital seasoning, sea salt

How To Make pizza stuffed mushrooms

  • 1
    Oven to 375. Put mushrooms top side down in a cast iron skillet or sheet pan with sides. Fill each with WELL drained diced tomatoes, sprinkle seasonings, then cheese, and top with cooked sausage. Bake 15-20 min or until cheese melts. If desired, top with fresh herbs.

    NOTES: I like the Italian cheese blend with parmesan rather than straight mozzarella. Also, the mushroom caps; chop stems and fry in with sausage (add onion and garlic if you want). To appease my in-laws lack of eating mushrooms, I will try it with halved green, orange, red or yellow bell peppers, seeds removed.
