Made this for lunch and it was great. I did change a few things. I used roasted garlic instead of the infused olive oil. I also used a little Italian seasonings as well. Will definately make again. Thanks for the post.
I found this recipe to be interesting. I worked in a pizza restaurant for a few years in my late teens. I found, however, that as this recipe does not call for dough it all falls apart when you try to serve it. The photo shows a beautiful dough crust. The recipe has forgotted to include it. The idea was good and I have made it again with a crust, however, this is very different from that in the recipe.
Wow! I wasn't sure what to expect with these, but they were so delicious. I modified the recipe a bit by adding pizza sauce, but I think they would be great with or without it. This is a great idea for an appetizer or a meal. All the taste, without the carbs. :)
I am not following the South Beach diet but I thought this was such a unique idea and gave it a try. It was terrific! I topped the portobello the same way I would have a regular pizza crust.
I added a little low-fat feta to this and cooked them on the grill. They are so tasty and filling.
This recipe is really good! I have made it without cooking the tomatoes first, and I think that it is better that way. I also added a little basil pesto and goat cheese to some, which is really awesome. This is a low carb favorite!!
This was wonderful. I did cut back a bit on the basil, and next time I'll chop the tomatoes up a bit more, but apart from that I loved it.
I'm on phase 1, and I'm pretty sure I can eat this. Anyways, this was a good replacement for pizza. I put slices of reduced fat salami, peppers, and green onions on top. They were piled high and a little messy but were still very good. I also used dry basil and lots of oregano on the tomatoes, and it was very flavorfull. These hit the spot on South Beach!
