Grilled Portobello Muffuletta Pizzas


  • 4 portobello mushroom caps, gills scraped

  • Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), for drizzling and brushing

  • Salt and pepper

  • 1 cup drained jarred giardiniera salad (pickled vegetable salad)

  • 1/2 cup pitted green olives

  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced sweet sopressata

  • 4 slices provolone cheese

  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced hot ham, such as capicola

  • One 1-pound ball smoked mozzarella

  • 4 cups mixed greens

  • Juice of 1 lemon


Pre-heat a grill or broiler to medium-high. Brush the mushroom caps with EVOO, season with salt and pepper and grill, turning once, until tender, 7-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, using a food processor, pulse the giardiniera and olives into a relish.

Layer the mushroom caps with the sopressata, provolone, hot ham, relish and mozzarella. Grill, covered, or broil the muffuletta pizzas until the cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes.

Dress the greens with the lemon juice and a drizzle of EVOO; season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with the muffuletta pizzas.
