Cheesy Portabella Pizza Ingredients:
2 Portabella mushrooms
1 cup of raw, grass-fed cheese of your choice
3 chopped green onions (scallions)
2 tbsps lemon juice
2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of crushed garlic
½ of a diced red bell pepper
¼ tsp of pink salt
¼ tsp of black pepper
1 tsp of freshly chopped basil
Cheesy Portabella Pizza Instructions:
1. With a spoon, scrape the gills out until the underside is mostly clean. Place them on a foil lined rimmed baking sheet.
2. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic. Brush mushroom caps inside and out with the olive oil mixture. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper.
3. Pre-heat the broiler. Broil the mushrooms for 3-5 minutes until they are hot and the edges are starting to brown. They will start to release moisture and get juicy. Remove from the oven.
4. Pre-heat the oven to 375. Fill the caps with the red bell pepper, cheese, and onion. Sprinkle with the fresh basil.
5. Bake for 12 minutes or until hot and the cheese has softened
Pizza night is my favorite night. Not the processed pizza with white flour, vegetable oils, and toxic cheese that leaves my body slow, and fighting for balance…But the kind that is full of fresh, raw ingredients that will fuel and support the body- and tastes amazing.
What I love most about this recipe is all of the possibilities! I personally love a raw goat cheese/tomato/basil combination.
My absolute favorite is pesto portabella, which I will post soon because it was INCREDIBLE.
Make it your own…tomato sauce, white pizza, pesto…basil, oregano, cilantro, on my!
Fresh herbs are so powerful and healing to our bodies, plus they bring out amazing flavor. Basil may just be my favorite.

I always loved pizza growing up and this recipe is a much healthier version that tastes awesome! Grass-fed raw cheese is a fantastic superfood that is loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, CLA, vitamin K2 and branched chain amino acids. If you aren’t dairy sensitive, be sure to load up this recipe with lots of healthy raw cheese.
You can find excellent variety of raw, grass-fed cheese from a local farmer or you order it from US Wellness Meats here
