Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms Final 1 Are you a mushroom lover or a hater? If you are in the happy loving mushroom camp, have I got a ground breaking, life-altering recipe for you! If you’re a hater, then I’m really very sorry for your loss. They are tasty little fungi.

Most people in my family are on the haters side, fortunately.  Yes, I said fortunately. This way I can hog these stuffed little babies all to myself because they are goo-ood. Creamy, salty, ooey-gooey little- -piece-of-heaven-you-never-want-to-stop-eating kind of good. And they’re super simple to make! I had everything on hand yesterday. Of course, everyone likes different things on their pizza, so adjust accordingly!

Start out first with some cream cheese, parmesan cheese and spices in a bowl.

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms 4  Bake these babies for 20 minutes and then pop them under the broiler until the tops get brown and lovely.
Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms Final 2  Hello lover.

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Yield: 2 servings


10 whole Baby Bella Or Crimini Mushrooms
4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, softened
¼ cups Grated Parmesan Or Mozzarella Cheese
¼ teaspoons Dried Basil
⅛ teaspoons Dried Oregano
Garlic Salt And Pepper, To Taste
¼ cups Finely Diced Pepperoni
2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Green Pepper
2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Red Onion
2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Black Olives


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray two mini iron skillets with non stick cooking spray and set aside. (A sheet tray will work just fine, too!)
Wash mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove stems. (They should just pop out!) Set aside.
In a small bowl, stir cream cheese, parmesan, basil, oregano, garlic salt and pepper together until combined. Stir in remaining ingredients, excluding the mushrooms.
Spoon into prepared mushroom caps by the heaping teaspoonful. Place 5 in each skillet and bake 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, switch your oven from bake to broil and brown the tops of each mushroom. Remove and serve hot.

    Put me on “Team Mushroom”! Love them – and love this idea. Such a clever departure from traditional stuffed mushrooms, and with a much broader appeal than something like a crab-stuffed mushroom – there are a lot of seafood haters out there too! Great party appetizer idea – without the added calorie load of puff-pastry.

    LOVE shroomies (currently slamming down a bowl of mushroom soup for lunch) and, holy spicoli, do these look good. I like that these don’t look too slobbery messy, too. This will be a good finger food for a party.

    Thanks for sharing this. These are delicious!! I just made them and used green olives instead of black. I LOVE them. I will definitely make them again.

    Lindsay — April 11, 2013 at 5:44 pm

    Thanks for the recipe! I made a modified version for me and my boyfriend tonight and we are both so full but we wish we had more! Instead of small mushrooms, we just stuffed two big portabella’s and used the Baby Bell Laughing Cow cheese (Garlic & Parmeson flavored) and turkey pepperoni (tastes li-terally exactly the same) to save calories (although my BF added bacon to his, haha). IT WAS BALLER. If you want to see a pic, here’s a link:

    Thanks again!

    Sarah | Drool-Worthy — February 21, 2014 at 3:14 pm
