Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms

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.

 Then mix it up so be nice and smooth. Having softened cream cheese really helps p.s.

 Now, gather your pizza toppings/ingredients…

mushrooms, olives, green peppers, red onion and pepperoni

 And toss them into the bowl of cream cheese.

 Mix it all up and that’s your filling! Simple right?

 Then take a heaping teaspoon and fill up your mushroom caps. *Don’t forget to wash the mushrooms first!*

 Bake these babies for 20 minutes and then pop them under the broiler until the tops get brown and lovely.

    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.

  2. Julie @ Table for Two

    I love stuffed mushrooms and what better than PIZZA stuffed? Omg, you rock my world, Lauren. These look fantastic 🙂 great idea!

  3. Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray

    I’m a recent arrival to the mushroom lover camp, and these look so tasty! Definitely going to try them soon. 🙂

  4. Kathryn

    I am trying to teach myself to like mushrooms but it’s pretty hard going however even I think these look amazing and I reckon I could devour a fair few!

  5. Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau

    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.

  6. Rachel @ The Avid Appetite

    yum! i love this idea as an appetizer or small plate dinner. anything pizza flavored is good in my book 🙂

  7. Honey What's Cooking

    WOW! Lauren, you’re amazing!!! I’ve only made stuffed mushrooms, but who knew you can add cream cheese. My hubby hates mushrooms so I”ll be making this for myself on a low-key night. Very nice, bookmarking!

  8. Michelle
