Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Say Whaat? Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms! These bites are insane.

I’m in full on game day prep. I’ll be home for Brazil by then and I’ll be ready to throw an epic party. Part of that party is totally going to consist of these pizza stuffed mushrooms. Can we just discuss my absolutely love and affection for stuffed mushrooms? It’s a total love affair and I can’t get enough.

A few weeks back Thomas and I both wanted a pizza for dinner but there were a few things standing in our way!

1: I didn’t have any pizza dough

2: I was way too lazy to whip up a homemade batch of dough.

3: Trader Joe’s was closed! It was a late night craving and something had to be done!

So I invented some pizza stuffed mushrooms. Shove the cavities of these mushrooms with pesto and pizza sauce, top them with sun dried tomatoes and then add in some fresh mozzarella cheese! Finish it off with some freshly chopped basil and prepare to have your world rocked! I promise it’s going to be a game changer!

I’ll be whipping these up for game day and relishing in the praise I get from everyone at our party. It’s not to be missed!

    These are such cute little bites that look like flavour-town central! Such a creative spin on the classic stuffed mushroom, and I love that it is super simple and healthier than eating a big old slice of pizza (or 5, let’s be honest no on eats just 1 piece!)
