This recipe combines two of our favorite foods - pizza and mushrooms! We have made these Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms several times and we can't get enough of them!! They are great for parties, tailgating and a quick low-carb lunch or dinner. We stuffed the mushrooms with a combination of pepperoni and sausage (our favorite pizza topping combination). Feel free to add green peppers, onions, olives - whatever you like on your pizza!
The filling for these Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms can be made ahead of time and refrigerated until you are ready to stuff and bake the mushrooms. The amount of mushrooms this recipe will make will depend on how big or small your mushrooms caps are. I got about 18 stuffed mushrooms. I had a few big mushrooms.
