Melissa’s Recipe. This is really fantastic. If you had your eyes closed, you might even think there was cheese in this pizza!

Veggie Portabella Mushroom Pizza



2 portabella mushroom caps
1 cup pizza sauce (try to find one with as few preservatives as possible)
Vegan Cashew Basil Cheese Sauce (see recipe below)
1 cup diced pepper – colors of your choice!
1/2 cup sweet onion, diced
2-3 large basil leaves, finely diced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Take a baking sheet and cover with aluminum foil. Make Vegan Cashew Basil cheese sauce by using the recipe below. Set aside. Remove stems of Portabellas and gently rub Portabellas with a wet cloth to clean. Place Portabellas ‘belly’ side up on the baking sheet. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of pizza sauce into each Portabella. Now spoon about 2 teaspoons of Vegan Cashew basil Cheese Sauce on top of the pizza sauce. Grab a cutting board and knife and chop the onion and pepper and then sprinkle onto Portabellas. Finally, sprinkle finely diced basil on top. Broil in the oven on the lowest temperature setting on the middle rack for about 10-12 minutes, watching closely as broiler temperatures vary. Serve immediately and enjoy!
