Low-Carb Single Serve Mushroom Pizza

For those craving pizza while trying to maintain a low-carb lifesyle, this will curb that craving for sure. The weight of the mushroom I used was 2 ounces with the stem and gills removed. Make sure you use a good quality refined coconut oil, you don’t want your pizza to taste like coconut. This is a great keto friendly and gluten friendly recipe.

1 portabello mushroom (2 ounces)
2 tablespoons pizza sauce
50 grams hot calabrese salami, sliced into thin strips
1 slice bacon (about 6” long), chopped into bits
1 queen olive, sliced
1/2 tablespoon Nutiva organic refined virgin coconut oil, melted
2 slices provolone cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Brush both sides of the mushroom with the coconut oil and place it, well side up, on a small cookie sheet or pie plate line with parchment paper.
  3. Put 1 tablespoon of the pizza sauce into the well of the mushroom and rub it evenly over mushroom.
  4. Place 1 slice of cheese over the sauce and top with the sliced salami; top with another tablespoon of pizza sauce.
  5. Add the other slice of provolone and top with the remaining ingredients.
  6. Place in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  8. Enjoy!

  1. DH could not get a large portabello so he got me two small ones so I divided the ingredients between the two though instead of bacon I used ham and mozzarella cheese and omitted the olive (don't really like them) and baked for 10 minutes and it made a delicious lunch, thank you Bea made for For Your Consideration tag game at FF&F.
