Delicious Healthy Pizza is one of the Sweet As Pie Cooking Club selections for February. This is not just your typical lightened up pizza. There's no crust here.
After looking at the ingredients, I admit I was more than a little skeptical at first. I had never prepared leeks or portabella mushrooms before.
Leeks are...well...exactly WHAT are they?
And portabellas are...just plain ugly...and BIG...and don't even look appetizing.
But that's what this cooking club experience is about, trying something new! So here goes.
Brown the onions. This is always a good start!
Add in chopped tomatoes and garlic.
Add the leek. I had heard about the dirt inside and about rinsing it well. So I just went with it.
Squeeze in some lemon juice.
Add yummy basil.
Stir it all together.
Enter the portabellas. I removed the stem, I don't know why, maybe to make more room for the filling.
Pile on the parmesan cheese. I might have added more than the recipe called for.
Bake until heated through about 12 minutes or so.
These were good and so filling! I was pleasantly surprised. I have been eating pretty heavy lately and this was a healthy meal at just the right time.
