This has become one of my favourite LC items, and I've served them to party guests who just loooooved them!

This is how I made them, but you can customize to suit your tastes....

Large Portobello Mushrooms (these are your "crusts")
Red Onion (chopped)
Red Pepper (chopped)
olive oil
minced garlic
1 can crabmeat
8oz (1 pckg) cream cheese
shredded cheese (nacho type - cheddar/mozz/monteray)
tomato (sliced)
spices to taste

In a bowl, Mix the softened cream cheese & crab (& chill for a bit, if possible)
Take the stem out of the Portobello, being careful to keep the mushroom intact.
Brush off any dirt with a damp cloth.
Place the mushroom (empty stem side up) on a cookie sheet or in a pan
Spread a bit of olive oil & minced garlic over the mushroom
Spread the crab/creamcheese mixture over mushroom
Sprinkle chopped onion/pepper over top
Place a tomato slice on top
Sprinkle with s&p, basil, whatever spices you like
Sprinkle with parmesan & shredded cheese

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, then broil for about 5-10 minutes, until the toppings a browned a bit.

Once the mushroom "pizzas" have cooled a tiny bit, they can be served whole or cut into slices. KNIFE & FORK MANDATORY!

You could skip the crab/creamcheese and just use pepperoni, chicken, salsa, whatever!!!

I'm going to try this. I am loving all these new interesting ideas. Cooking is fun for me again.

I cant handle the mushrooms -- but I think I might something like this on eggplant.

...If it is a total disaster I'll come back to warn anyone else not to try it..... off to that kitchen, I've been missing pizza.

Although, I did pan fry pepperoni, and cubed chicken and toss mozzerella on it the other day and that was tastsy.

I'm definitely gonna try out this recipe. Sounds delicious. But if you're missing pizza, you have GOT to try the Deep Dish Pizza Quiche (http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=44087) :yum:

That Quiche Pizza looks great! Too bad I've already eaten tonight. I love the pepperoni "crust" idea too. Afterall that is my favorite thing on a pizza. Now maybe it will be my favorite thing under a pizza

Thanks for the link

Ohh the eggplant version was sooooo good! I made it on a very simple recipe.

Pan fry thin sliced eggplant in olive oil, garlic salt, and italian seasoning.
Lay the eggplant out on a large cookie sheet. Spoon rub a light coat of tomato sauce over each (? 2 tbs total) Cover with mozzerella and pepperoni and green pepper.
Toast in the oven - Voila! Delicious!

Thanks for the great idea! I needed a change from my routine.
