Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms with pepperoni and basil


 I love stuffed mushrooms… any kind.  Cream cheese, cheese & bacon, crab, cheeseburger stuffed or even a simple salsa… it doesn’t matter what you put in them, it’s always the appetizer I go for first!  Of course these Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms top my list!

Mushrooms just have such a rich earthy flavor and stuffing them is easy to do.  I like to wash my mushrooms and pull out the stem, I then use a tomato/strawberry huller to make the hole a little bigger (hello!!… more filling!).  I don’t always use the stems but this recipe calls for chopping the stems and cooking them with a little garlic for some extra flavor!  Naturally low carb and totally huge in flavor, this is one appetizer everyone agrees on!

Items You’ll Need for This Recipe

Tomato Corer * High Quality Pizza Sauce * Fresh Mushrooms *

A couple of things that make these extra yummy are using a great quality pizza sauce and adding chopped fresh basil after cooking.  If you have a local Italian market, ask for suggestions for a fabulous pizza sauce!  And of course fresh basil is SO amazing and makes everything taste totally incredible!
