    Great meal, but something wrong with ingredients per serving vs generated shopping list. 1 serving is one mushroom, I have set 3 servings per dinner to hit my calories, which should give me 3 mushrooms. But there is only 1 mushroom on the shopping list.

      SO delicious!!! Next time with the huge portobellos I’d try to cut them in half and then double the recipe for the toppings.

            Absolutely delicious! One of my favorite recipes yet. The only changes I made was using an Italian seasoning blend in the olive oil and I topped each with a tablespoon of fresh grated Parmesan. I could eat these all day long.

                Sounds delicious. I bet these would be equally as delicious with goat cheese too!😋

              Oh my gosh, this recipe is absolutely phenomenal. I used a lot of garlic, oregano, and basil. I can’t wait to have it again!!!

                  These were soooo good! I added rosemary and chives in the oil for a little extra flavour. I could eat these all day.

                    I’m confused. Are we eating 1 Portabello or 4?

                      Down below in nutrition it states that 1 mushroom is a serving.

                      This was awesome!! I added keto friendly pizza sauce to the caps under the mozzarella. Really good.

                      Though I used sliced regular mushrooms which made an "au gratin" type of dish, it turned out fine. To increase the amount of protein, I topped with 50 g of diced smoked trout.

                        It's the mushroom plus cheese, tomato, oil etc. :-)

                      I assume it's just 1 mushroom per person.

                      I broil the mushrooms on high for about a little less then a minute with olive oil, salt and pepper like Nbfgwilks said and then followed the rest of the recipe. They turned out great. No liquid and the centers were the right amount of soft with a light crunch around the edges.

                        So liquidy when I made this the 1st time. The 2nd time, I broiled the bellas for 5 min, used 1 Tbsp Raos marinara per bella under the cheese, omitted all seasonings but basil and omitted tomato slices. I used 1 chopped cherry tomato for each bella atop of the cheese. I also added a sprinkle of garlic salt over the chopped tomato and cheese and basil. This brings the carb count way down and a very similar taste to what I think you were trying to capture without less liquid from the tomato and mushroom. Also, In the recipe pictures, it looks like you're using fresh mozzarella Rather than a mozzarella shred.What type of mozzarella would you suggest would be best?

                          Very good & tasty but I did broil mushrooms with some salt, pepper & garlic powder for about 5 mins before proceeding with rest of recipe. Yummy!

                            Not a lot of flavor, very liquidy.

                              Didn’t have much flavor. Also the mushroom was watery. I broiled it before I made the pizza bites.
