Take out pizza is one of the most eaten foods at Super Bowl parties. At 350 or more calories per slice, it can also be the most fattening.
At our house, we always choose mushroom and black olive pizza. It has always been my favorite and I'm proud to say it is now the favorite of my four year-old, too!
I saw a picture of these somewhere on the internet one day. I thought they would make a perfect snack food for the Super Bowl.
Depending on the type of mushrooms you use, they provide vitamins, protein, and valuable fiber, including the type that may lower cholesterol. I added a slice of olive for healthy fat and antioxidants. They contain a small amount of lycopene-rich pizza sauce and a sprinkle of mozzerella cheese.
First, I washed the mushrooms and removed the stems.
Some came out easily, others I had to cut out with a knife.
Then, I dropped a teaspoon of pizza sauce inside
and put a slice of black olive on each mushroom.
And I sprinkled mozzerella cheese on top
before baking them.
