Grilled Portobello Pizzas

A low carbohydrate diet is not reason to miss out on fantastic pizza flavors. Instead of a high carbohydrate crust, this pizza uses portobello mushrooms for a delicious, savory crust. These can be made in the oven, but our test kitchen gets really hot in the summer time and we did not want to turn on the oven and make it worse. So we grabbed our favorite ingredients and headed out to the grill. The result was a delicious treat that really satisfied our pizza cravings without a lot of carbohydrates. 

Because the amount of ingredients is going to completely depend on the size mushrooms you can find, no exact quantities are given. Simply use your judgement and don't pile the ingredients too high or they will spill over the sides.
