Recipe Tips & Tricks
- Portobello mushroom pizzas are always best when they are fresh from the oven!
- Avoid rinsing mushrooms in water since they will absorb the water and get soft during baking, just brush them off gently and prepare. The gills can be added to the meat/sauce mixture or frozen and saved for another recipe or soup stock.
- Sprinkle on some extra cheese or sliced black olives or jalapenos before serving.
- Portobello mushroom pizzas will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Place the pizzas on top of a few folded pieces of paper towel to absorb moisture.
- Reheat them in a toaster oven or pop them under the broiler for about 5 minutes before serving.
Can You Freeze Portobello Mushroom Pizzas?
You sure can! For best results, follow these simple tips for freezing:
- Wrap each completely cooled pizza tightly in plastic wrap and place in a zippered bag (two or three per quart-sized bag) labeled with the date on the outside.
- They’ll keep for about 3 months.
- Let them thaw naturally in the refrigerator and reheat them in a toaster oven or under the broiler.
