Portobellas are a family of mushrooms, with a number of different types of species.
Most commonly found in the warmer months of the year, they can be found growing in gardens and woodlands and are often sold as a delicacy in some countries.
They are not necessarily a good source of protein, but they can provide a nice, crunchy texture to pizza.
They can also provide an excellent base for meat pies, and are generally a good choice for filling salads and stir-fries.
For a healthier option, try the portobella sausage.
It’s usually served with a variety of other ingredients such as diced tomatoes, garlic, and spices.
Portobella mushrooms are also often used as a substitute for meat in recipes like this veggie pizza.
This vegetarian version uses portobells as a base for the tomato sauce and cheese sauce.
