Pizza Burgers…mmmm Just thinking of this sandwich makes me a bit hungry! There is just something comforting about this sandwich!
The warm portobello mushrooms gives such a filling and deep taste to the sandwich. We are pretty big fans of these mushrooms at our home. They give such a deep earthy taste to recipes!
It is best to store them in a brown paper sack for 7-10 days. The mushroom is nutritionally dense and very delicious. These mushrooms can measure up to 6 inches across! That is huge!
There are lots of health benefits reported for mushrooms. Mushrooms are reported to be low in fat and cholesterol while high in fiber.
Portobello mushrooms are reported to be a great source of copper and offer up important B-complex vitamins!
You can cook your Portobello Mushrooms in a few ways. We have grilled them for this Portobello Pizza Burger and we have also made our pizza burgers by broiling our Portobellos. Do what works for you!
As far as the cheese goes, this is up to you. I like to use a white cheese for these portobello pizza burgers. You can use dairy cheese or vegan cheese.
The choice is up to you and your dietary needs. Generally speaking a Provolone type of cheese will be great!

I recently redid the pictures for this post. It originally was posted back in 2014, so four years later in 2018 I decided it was time to go back and reshoot these. 🙂 They are certainly delicious and simple.
These pizza burgers have stood the test of time! Enjoy the old/new photos 🙂
That is pretty easy, isn’t it? I think you are going to love these!
