Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

Jump to recipe

These pizza stuffed mushrooms are so good! I absolutely love them! One night I was eating with my in-laws and they were making stuffed calzones! I knew the pizza dough would probably hurt my stomach, since I don’t eat gluten that often and it was a lot of it! SOO… I brought portobello mushroom caps and stuffed them with the mixture I would’ve put into my calzone. And now I have these awesome pizza stuffed mushrooms! So good! I hope you love them!

Equipment for this recipe:

  • Frying Pan
  • Oven
  • Spatula
  • 9×13 baking dish

Ingredients for this recipe:

  • Mushroom Caps
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Clove
  • White Onion
  • Ground Sausage
  • Spinach
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Pesto
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Mozzarella


Mushroom caps are great because they don’t carry a ton of flavor into the dish and they are a great vessel. If you are not a mushroom fan you could stuff bell peppers. Switch out the mushrooms for 4 bell peppers of your choice.

I love sausage in this recipe, but you could easily swap it out for hamburger meat or even sliced pepperoni/salami. If you do pepperoni and salami just skip the browning meat step and go straight into adding all the ingredients together into the frying pan to wilt the spinach.

If you’re not a fan of pesto, you can simply leave it out or just use a few fresh basil leaves.

Mozzarella is a great cheese for this recipe because it doesn’t carry a strong flavor. If you like a stronger flavored cheese, you could substitute for parmesan or asiago. If you like a creamier cheese, could could top with a small dollop of ricotta!
