7 Portabella mushrooms are arranged on a board lined with baking paper. The mushrooms have been stuffed with cheese, tomatoes and basil and baked. The mushrooms are garnished with fresh basil leaves. A knife and a bottle of oil are positioned at the side.

Portobella mushrooms (also known as portabello) are large, mature mushrooms that have been allowed to grow to their fullest size. They have a rich, earthy flavour and a dense, chewy texture that makes them a popular meat substitute in vegetarian and vegan dishes. They can be grilled, roasted, sautéed, or used in soups, stews and salads.

In this recipe they have been stuffed with cheese, tomatoes and fresh basil for a fresh and healthy vegie-packed (and naturally gluten-free) twist on pizza.
