Perfect for lunch or a light dinner. Low calorie and Weight Watcher points too - Portabella Mushroom Pizza
Lunch, the bewitching hour, had been messing with my diet. I would be good before and after lunch, but at lunch time I wanted to go out. You know eating out is the kiss of death to losing weight. I decided to take the bull by the horns and deal with it once and for all. A solution came easily enough in the way of vegetables and lots of them. I started with a big salad topped with some turkey. I have now spread out to pizza. Yes, pizza minus the crust that is.

By substituting a portabella mushroom for crust, I can still have the flavors of pizza. I took it a step further by putting bruschetta on my mushroom pizza. I adore bruschetta with a fresh baguette, but I’ve learned sadly, that I manage my diet better when I do not have bread for lunch. Bye, bye bread. Surprisingly I don’t miss it. It is rather shocking.

Usually bruschetta is made with fresh tomatoes. When was the last time you had a good fresh tomato unless it was from your garden? Luckily Tuttorosso diced tomatoes taste exactly like fresh tomatoes. No, they do not taste like canned tomatoes. Yes, really. Their tomatoes are grown on family owned and run farms. I did a fun taste test with them, and you could taste the quality of the product. Plus Tuttorosso has a non-GMO certification. With a couple of ingredients I had a fantastic bruschetta. I spooned it onto a portabella mushroom and splurged on a little cheese and, voila, I had a delicious Portabella Mushroom Bruschetta Pizza for lunch. Yum, yum, yum.

  1. seems easy yet delicious recipe Christie... love mushrooms so much!
  2. Really like the use of the portabello. Adds both an earthiness and solid texture to this bruschetta.
  3. This looks so fresh and light! Yeah, no, last time I tried growing tomatoes I got the whole of one single tomato for the whole season. I think I'll go with your Tuttorosso option when I make this!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      We have had very little luck with growing tomatoes, too Natalia. Luckily Tuttorosso tastes like real tomatoes.
  4. Christie, we are so similar. lunch is the worst for me, and I always want something with bread. but I love mushrooms and pizza, and bruschetta, so this sounds like a perfect mid day meal
  5. Naturally gluten free and low carb---and way tastier than typical pizza. COUNT ME IN! Great job!
  6. What a great idea!!
  7. Beautiful dish...I love stuffing portabellas with all sorts of yummy things. The tomatoes are a great idea.
  8. This looks great! The combination seems like it's just packed with flavor. Great recipe.
  9. What a gorgeous and tasty dish as part of a light meal! I need to do this more often, so thanks for the inspiration! Love it!
  10. Lunch is my downfall lately. It used to be breakfast when I would eat biscuits and bacon and pancakes. Now that I am accustomed to my protein shake every morning, lunch seems to get me every time. Especially when I am running errands and Burger King makes the burgers "my way." I know I can have these mushroom pizzas and not worry about the gluten! Thanks!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Lunch is so hard when you are out. Luckily knowing you can come home to these Portabella Mushroom Bruschetta Pizzas make it worthwhile.
  11. Ahh, mushrooms are seriously one of the most versatile ingredients! These look delicious!
