Ingredients:
4 Large Portobello Mushrooms
Pizza sauce or pesto
8 cherry tomatoes – halved or you can use a larger one, sliced
Mozzarella cheese, or a mixture of cheeses that are good to melt like Monterey Jack
Dried oregano or Italian seasoning
Black pepper
Olive oil
Any extra topping of your choice – sliced olives, anchovies, ham, salami etc

Method:
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F

Remove the stalk and scrape the gills to leave a hollow in the mushroom.

Rub the outside of the mushroom cap with olive oil and spoon in enough pizza sauce or pesto to cover the inside of the mushroom.

Sprinkle a small amount of cheese over the sauce and then place 4 cherry tomato halves in each cap. At this point you can add extra toppings and then top with more cheese. Finish with a sprinkle of the dried herbs

Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for around 20 minutes or until the top is bubbling and well toasted. Serve with a fresh green salad.
