Ingredients

  • Olive oil spray
  • 16 oz Crimini mushrooms, stems removed, wiped clean
  • 1/2 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt divided (not fine salt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1/4 cup pizza sauce (I like Rao's)
  • 1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella, shredded
  • 1 teaspoon chopped herbs for garnish (I use freeze-dried parsley)

Instructions

  • Heat your broiler to 450 degrees F and set a rack directly below the heating element (4 inches below). Line a rimmed broiler-safe baking sheet with foil and spray it with oil.
  • Place the mushrooms, top side up, on the prepared pan. Spray with oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and black pepper. Broil for 2-3 minutes, until just tender. 
  • Remove the pan from the oven. Place the mushrooms on paper towels, top side up, to absorb any liquids that were released during broiling. Wipe the baking sheet clean and spray it with more oil. 
  • Arrange the mushrooms back on the baking sheet, top side down. Spray them with more olive oil, and sprinkle with the remaining kosher salt and black pepper. Spoon a little pizza sauce into each mushroom and top each of them with a small pile of grated cheese.
  • Return the pizza stuffed mushrooms to the oven and broil just until cheese is melted and beginning to brown, about 1 minute. Garnish with chopped herbs and serve.
