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!

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Clean mushrooms and remove stems. Using a small spoon, scoop out insides of mushrooms to allow enough room for filling.
  3. Finely chop mushroom stems. Add olive oil, garlic and chopped mushroom stem to a pan over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes cool slightly.
  4. Stuff mushroom stems in mushroom caps. Top each with 1 tablespoon pizza sauce, 1 tablespoon cheese and 3 mini pepperonis.
  5. Bake 18-20 minutes or until mushrooms are cooked and cheese is browned and bubbly.
  6. Cool slightly before serving.
