Portobello Greek Pizza Recipe, Healthy Carbs & FiberSeptember 14, 2018
This Portobello Greek Pizza recipe is one you can make for yourself or others too. Use it for a Meatless Monday, or for a light dinner, or even a delicious appetizer.
How many times have you had trouble throwing together a quick, healthy meal because it’s just you? Sometimes, if we are cooking for one, we tend to put ourselves on back burner (pun intended) and eat processed junk. No more! Your body is a temple, so treat it as such….as much as it’s up to you, at least. Here’s my idea for you….an easy roasted portobello “crust”, filled with creamy Best Hummus Ever, topped with some fresh Greek vegetables and drizzled with a yummy balsamic syrup (no sugar added). It’s filled with flavor and only takes 15 minutes to create.
You can roast those portobellos in the oven, or put them for 5 minutes on a medium-high grill. So easy, and versatile! Enjoy!

- 3 tablespoons chopped cherry tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons diced English cucumber
