Recipe! RAW Pizza! Portobello Mushroom Crust with Sunflower Cheese
Posted Nov 15 2008 12:00am
This is the first time I made this kind of pizza. The crust is simply the cap of a portobello mushroom. Brilliant! I have seen a couple of recipes but decided not to look anything up and just fly by the seat of my pants. How hard can it be? Here are the results, go to the previous entry to see the play, by play photo journalistic recipe that I painstakingly made, just for you...
Wow, it smells really good. It lifted out easily and is firm and dry on the outside. I was afraid it would get drippy but it did not. Perfection.
I chopped it into four pieces with my handy chopping knife. Good knives are the best thing you can have as a chef, be ye raw or cooked, vegan or (blech) animal eater. Get good knives. I haunt thrift stores and find nice ones.
The presentation. Not bad. Red lettuce with sunflower seed sprinkles and a dollop of seed cheese, because. It's good.
Side view. The marinara got absorbed into the cheese or the mushroom, I am not sure which. This is like a stuffed mushroom but on a large scale. If you like mushrooms, you will LOVE this.
Comin' at ya! This is a three part entry, please scroll down or click older to see the preparation of the pizza! Yum!! So many photos!!!
