    I've tried this before in the past and the mushrooms always became extremely soggy and it basically ended up as a pizza flavored dish moreso than a mini-pizza.

    Saying that, it is delicious and the way I've come up with to prevent the softness is to keep the mushroom caps at room temperature, pre-cook the sauce mixture in a small pot to get it nice and hot, then assemble it all and put it under the broiler for 5 - 7 minutes to get the cheese and meat crisped up.

    This really helps keep the mushroom caps from becoming soft and flexible.

    I do much this, but smear the mushroom gills with a teaspoon or so of black olive tapenade, add some chopped oil- soaked sun dried tomatoes slivered, cover with a slice of goats cheese (chèvre log or similar) and bake until mushroom is soft / cheese is melting. Delicious.

    Neat idea! I use portabello mushrooms for Eggs Benedict, and so on.

    To keep them dry, yet seriously tasty, I put them in a grill pan with the underside facing up until the juices come up. Then, flip them over and press down - this will evaporate the liquid and keep all the flavour in.

    Excellent idea! I sometimes find the watery-ness of mushrooms a problem.

    I see you are in Bradford - I'm coming up to stay in a hotel for night early May, and looking at the canals nearby. Looking forward to it!

    We've got a lot of canals. The five rise locks at Bingley were fully drained recently. Apparently quite a spectacle. Have fun ...

    I'm going to try these mini pizzas soon. I see mushrooms as supplanting bread, rather than making a poor emulation of neolithic foods. Taking it back! I use LOTS of sliced mushrooms in dishes where I would previously have used pasta like farfelle or fusilli, mushrooms as bases from open burgers, and so on ...

    Bread and pasta are easy to supplant - they're fillers, and pretty damn tasteless and uninteresting otherwise.

    Having not eaten pizza much at all prior to going paleo, I think I'll give it a go. Fun little combinations of food over a tasty base.
