It’s was a sunny afternoon. At the bus stop, I flagged and boarded the first bus that would bring me to the neighborhood mall. From my watch, it was already 10 minutes past 1 o’clock and my stomach was already grumbling. The first thing that came to my mind was a Subway sandwich. So when I reached the mall I, hurried to Subway and ordered their Ham Cold Cut Trio combo from one of their S$5 combo everyday-all-day-promotions.

After munching my sandwich, I dropped by Cold Storage to grab a pack of Portobello mushrooms for our dinner. I planned to cook Portobello Mushroom Pizza because I wanted to use up the remaining ingredients from my my Broccoli Pizza Frittata.

Pizza is one of my family’s all-time-favorites. But as we all know, the conventional pizza recipe has a high carb content because of the crust! So to satisfy our craving for pizza and at the same time lower our carb intake, I substitute the flour-based crust with juicy and meaty Portobello mushrooms. Trust me, this pizza recipe will still give you the enjoyment of eating pizza! If you want to have a vegetarian variety, just remove the pepperoni or salami from the ingredients.
