Garlic Herb Spread

Oven Roasting Portobello Mushroom Pizza
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Add a few tablespoons of the pizza sauce to the portobello mushroom. Add 2oz of mozzarella to each mushroom and pop in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
Cook for 12 - 15 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted and the top starts to turn brown. Remove the pizzas.
Add fresh basil as the pizza comes out. If you want to add before, the basil will still taste good but will turn dark brown/black.
Extra Sauce: There is enough sauce to make eight portobello mushrooms. If you don't plan to make all eight, freeze the leftover sauce for up to 3 months in a freezer safe container. Not Freezer Friendly: These mushrooms are not freezer friendly. Garlic Spread: Don't skip the garlic herb as that is really the key to this recipe. That is the magic that pulls it all together. Vegan Option: To make this vegan, just replace the cheese with a vegan-safe variety. There are several brands that make a good shredded mozzarella.Air Fryer, Ninja Foodi, and Instant Pot Duo Crisp Directions: If you make this in the Ninja Foodi or Duo crisp use the crisping lid for the device.
Prep the mushrooms the same way.
Air fry at 350 degrees, and cook for 6-10 minutes or until cheese is nice and melted.
