Portobello Red Pepper & Pesto Pizza


This simple 5 ingredient pesto pizza features portobello mushrooms and red peppers. Easy and delicious for your next pizza night!


  • your favorite pizza dough (I used a loaf of frozen bread dough because I had some, but if you’re going homemade, try this)
  • 23 portobello mushrooms, stems removed
  • 5 jarred roasted red peppers, sliced
  • 3/4 cup parmesan mozzarella blend
  • 1/4 cup pesto (store bought or homemade)


  1. Follow the directions for whatever dough you are using. When it’s risen and ready, roll it into a circle and place it on the pizza pan. I let mine rest for another 20 minutes after rolling it.
  2. Decide if you want to leave the gills in or not. Chop them into long, thin slices.
  3. Spread the pizza dough with pesto. Top with portobello slices and roasted red pepper. Sprinkle with cheese.
  4. Bake at 425 for about 10-15 minutes, then check periodically until it’s done. Your time and temperature will depend on your dough, too.
