Portobello mushroom caps stuffed with paleo pizza sauce, cashew cheese, and topped with your favorite toppings make the perfect appetizer or side dish! Paleo and Whole30 friendly, and perfect for any gathering!
I haven’t always been a huge mushroom fan, but I have to say they have really grown on me over the years. Stuffed mushrooms are SO good, especially when they are stuffed with creamy, delicious ingredients.
For these mini portobello pizzas, I used mini portobello mushrooms and stuffed them with pizza sauce and cashew cheese, then topped them with pepperoni and basil ribbons. SO simple. Aside from soaking the cashews, this recipe only takes 30 minutes from start to finish. You could easily customize these to your taste, and top them with whatever you like best. They are such a cute finger food!
Tips for making paleo pizza stuffed portobellos:
- To save time, soak your cashews in advance. You can soak them overnight in the fridge, or soak them for 10 minutes in super hot water.
- This recipe can easily be customized – you could use pesto instead of pizza sauce, and mix up the toppings however you’d like.
- You can prep the entire recipe in advance, and store in the fridge until you are ready to bake them.
- Here’s my favorite Paleo pizza sauce (It’s whole30 compliant as well!)
How to store these paleo pizzas:
Before baking, these pizzas can be frozen and thawed fully before baking.
After baking, leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven, or microwave.Print

What to serve with these pizzas:

- Simple Salad with vinaigrette dressing – If you prefer something simpler, just toss some mixed greens with a simple oil and vinegar dressing.
Can you eat pizza on a paleo diet?
Yes, you can eat pizza on a paleo diet! It may not look EXACTLY like traditional pizza, which usually involves a refined wheat flour crust and is topped with cheese, but you can still have a variation of pizza.
Most paleo pizza dough is made of paleo-friendly ingredients. You could make a crust that is a blend of paleo flours, like almond and coconut, or make a cauliflower-based crust, or use another veggie, like portobellos as the base.
For the cheese, you can make your own paleo cheese, or use a creamier cheese base, like the cashew one used in this recipe. You may be surprised by how delicious paleo pizza can be!
