Crazy for Caprese 

One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to find delicious recipes that serve as a healthy alternative to other dishes that are high in fat and calories. It’s fun to get creative in the kitchen and not feel bad about what I am eating!

This is my version of a Caprese pizza. No, there is no bread or dough involved. I have created this pizza on top of a portobello mushroom! Blasphemy you say? Wait until you try it! 

First, clean the portobellos and lay them flat on a sheet pan. In a small bowl add butter (or olive oil) garlic and parsley and heat it in the microwave until it’s all combined into one sauce. Brush the portobellos with this mixture front and back. Lay them on their backs and place 4 or 5 halved grape tomatoes on each mushroom. Sprinkle over mozzarella cheese and pop them in the oven at a low broil. While they are cooking, start your balsamic reduction. Over the stove, mix balsamic vinegar and sugar. Let it sit on the stove and reduce down until thick. Once the cheese on top of the portobellos starts to get golden brown, take them out of the oven. Rip some basil leaves over the top of each mushroom, add a drizzle of the balsamic reduction and enjoy!!
