For hors d'ouevres (serves 4), cut the portobellos in half. To serve this as a meal (serves 2), leave the pizzas whole.

Wonderfull recipe! Only change I would nmake is the addition of some cayenne pepper or tabasco sauce. I like the use of whole tomato in this recipe instead of a jarred sauce! I will play with different types of cheese in the future for varioty. Wonderfull dish! Thanks! Edit 5/5/09: Made this using Recipe #233811 for the cheese...you have to try this!!! Takes it to a new level!

  5. Remove from portobellos from the oven and top each with the cheese, tomato wedges, basil, and pine nuts.
