Diveats - Mushroom "Pizza"

Have you ever made a mushroom pizza?  OK, maybe that's not really a real thing, but it should be!
With just a few simple ingredients you can make a personal size pizza for one.  Only it's not really pizza.  It's even simpler and totally healthy.
So simple.  So easy to make.
I made myself a mushroom pizza recently by marinading a portabella mushroom cap in Italian dressing for about a half hour.  Then I baked it at 350 for about 12 minutes.  Next I added tomato slices on top and baked for another 5 minutes. 
Finally, I layered on a few slices of fresh mozzarella and baked for another 5 minutes or until the cheese was slightly melted.  I also broiled it on high for a minute or two after that to try to achieve a golden brown color on top.  I succeeded for the most part.
Melty Cheesy Yummy
I have made this one other time and added pesto.  Might I say that pesto makes a world of difference.  It really takes it from pizza-reminiscent to this-is-so-good-I-am-in-no-way-wishing-this-"pizza"-had-an-actual-buttery-crust.  So I'd obviously recommend adding pesto!  I was just out this time.
Nothing revolutionary here, but it sure is an easy mid-week dinner that you can whip up in a figure-friendly flash!  Try it!
