Psstt… did you know that is September already?

How in the world did that happen?

The month of September brings a lot of fun stuff for us. It’s my parents 35 wedding anniversary, my dad’s 60th birthday, a trip out to Redmond, Oregon to celebrate both of those, and Mike and I’s 8th wedding anniversary!

Lots of stuff on the docket and not alot of time to plan. At least thats how I’m feeling because I’m an uber planner. But clearly not that great at it because otherwise I would be finished with everything and not be stressing about what to get my parents for their 35th!!

What do you even get someone who has been married for that long?

I mean these days its a feat to be married that long! It shouldn’t be.. but sadly it is.

So, while I’m busy trying to think about what to get my parents {recommendation welcome.. PLEASE} you guys need to get busy making these Portobello Mushroom Pizzas!

These Pizzas came about because I was sick and tired of feeling so full, heavy, and bloated after eating pizza! Do you ever feel like that or am I alone on this one?

The main reason I feel bloated after pizza is from the crazy amounts of cheese and the heavy dough from the crust.

My solution = go crustless and less cheese.

Enter … the Portobello Mushroom Pizza.

At first I was gonna go with a marinara sauce or pesto sauce as the base sauce (because my basil plant is ridiculously out of control right now). Who needs a sauce… lets just use some balsamic!

Um.. yes… balsamic is my answer to everything if you were wondering. hehe

This Pizza recipe is so full of flavor from just a few ingredients it is unreal! Literally most of the ingredients are vegetables …. major bonus!
