Portobello Pizzas

¼ cup olive oil
kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
½ cup simple tomato sauce
16 slices pepperoni
4 large leaves basil, very finely chopped
1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated


1. Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Drizzle olive oil over mushrooms, rubbing it in to coat mushrooms completely.

2. Spread 2 tbsp tomato sauce over the surface of each mushroom cap, then arrange 4 slices of pepperoni on each. Sprinkle chopped basil over pepperoni, then top with ¼ cup of cheese.
