It may not be much to look at, but this little baby was super tasty!  May I present, the portobello pizza.  I could definitely see doing this in lieu of the traditional pizza on family pizza night (for myself, at least).

This was a vegetarian, easy, filling meal.  I whipped up the filling for my pizza, and while it was cooking, the boys made their own "make your own pizzas."  The result was very little clean-up and a fun, tasty dinner.

olive oil
cherry tomatoes, quartered
seasonings (I used some basil and thyme from my garden), minced
squeeze of minced garlic
a couple squeezes of lemon juice
handful of torn baby spinach
portobello mushroom
handful of skim, shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Heat up your pan with a little olive oil
Saute your tomatoes, seasonings, garlic, lemon juice, and spinach
Remove your stem of the portobello (don't worry about the ribs)
Fill your portobello with your filling and top with as much mozzarella as desired
Bake for 12-15 minutes, turn on Broil (Hi) for a couple of minutes at the end and make sure to pull it out before it burns.

I let the kids choose to use either English muffins or tortillas for their pizzas.  Stephen chose tortilla, Taylor chose the muffin.  They both had a bowl of cheese, and they requested sliced hot dogs as their toppings.  Oddly enough, they both turned down offers of spinach, tomatoes, and fresh basil.  Oh well!  They had fun and ate all of their "pizzas."

I probably went a little heavy on the cheese, but man, was it good!  I will definitely be making this dinner again :)  A great option for Meatless Mondays.
