Ingredients

For quick tomato sauce

Garlic clove 3 , mince
Vine ripe tomato 3 , diced
Salt and pepper To Taste
Red pepper flakes 1/4 Teaspoon
Basil leaves 5 , chopped finely
For pizza
Portobello mushrooms 4 Large
Fresh mozzarella 2 Tablespoon (more or less as needed)
Goat cheese 2 Tablespoon (more or less as needed)
Pesto 2 Tablespoon (more or less as needed)
Chopped sun dried tomato 1 Tablespoon (more or less as needed)
Fresh chopped basil 1 Tablespoon (more or less as needed)

Directions

MAKING

1.In a saucepan over medium high heat add some olive oil and chopped shallots. Let them cook for a minute or two.

2.Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about one minute.

3.Add the chopped tomatoes, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and chopped fresh basil. Let it come to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes.

4.While the sauce is cooking prepare your mushrooms and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

5.Take the portobello mushrooms and gently remove the stem with your fingers. Using a spoon gently scrape away all of the gills of the mushroom and discard them. Take a damp paper towel and wipe the outside of the mushroom, getting rid of any dirt that might be on them. You don't want to wash the mushrooms under running water because they will get soggy and we don't want that!

6.Crumble up a small piece of aluminum foil into a long strip. Take the strip of foil and make it into an O shape and put it on a sheet tray. Put the cleaned mushroom on top of the aluminum O. This is a really great tip to insure your mushroom won't get soggy when baking.

7.To the inside of the mushrooms add a few tablespoons of the fresh sauce, some mozzarella cheese, goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, pesto, and more chopped basil. Play around with the toppings and make it your own!

8.Put the mushrooms in the oven and let them cook for 12-15 minutes, or until they're bubbling and the mushroom is cooked through

9.Take them out and serve hot! Enjoy!
