Mushroom pizzalets

I was going through my photo bank for some of my old recipes for sharing and i came across this one.This is one of my favorite snack,it is such a fun dish, a kid friendly dish and it is such a great party food. I remember having some left over porcini mushrooms, so i decided to do this dish for my husband.

I love mushrooms in any shape,size and in any dish.Most of you might have come across this recipe and everyone has their own version and this my version. This dish has very less ingredient and you don t have to do any hard work!! all you do is assemble and voila! you have an amazing fancy snack.

I used store bought pasta sauce as my tomato sauce, some olives, bell peppers, onions and cheese. I used 2 kinds of cheese cheddar cheese for sharpness and some mozzarella for that molten gooeyness which we all expect out of pizza.You can use any cheese you like or any cheese you have in your fridge. I also used some pizza seasoning, but you can skip it if you don't have at home or just add some red chili flakes and dried oregano you have. As we use only the top part of the mushroom as our base I cut out the stem, and wait I don discard the,but chop it up and add it to our filling.

Make it your game day dish this year :) and have fun with kids on this one.
