We start by gently removing the mushroom gills by scraping them with a spoon. To keep our shrooms from getting soggy we like to bake ours upside down on a muffin tin so that it collects the liquid and makes it much easier to discard.

Then we’ll use our favorite pesto add the cheese and cherry tomatoes and bake until golden and bubbly.

Easy peasy gluten free portobello pizza perfection.
