Vegan or vegetarian pizza burgers

Whether you want to make these delicious pizza burgers. Vegan or vegetarian is all up to you. It all depends on the type of cheese you use in the recipe. If you are making the vegan version, I recommend also sprinkling nutritional yeast on the burgers, to add extra cheesy flavours. 

Whenever I make these burgers vegan, I like to make it as simple as possible, and buy the exact vegan copycat cheeses…meaning vegan shredded mozzarella and vegan gorgonzola cheese. It just makes life a lot more simple – and just as delicious, if you ask me. 

If you have a favourite vegan cheese, you can substitute the mozzarella cheese with your favourite, to get the best results. 

How are these amazing portobello burgers made? It’s very easy. Just:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F and grease or line a baking pan with baking paper. 
  • Place the portobello mushrooms bottom side up and spread the garlic cream cheese on top. Next, spread tomato paste on top and add the shredded cheese. (If you’re making the vegan version, top with nutritional yeast at this stage).
  • Next, place the tomato slices on top of the portobello mushrooms and season with salt, pepper and oregano. Top with crumbled gorgonzola cheese (vegan or vegetarian). 
  • Bake the portobello mushrooms in the middle of the oven for 20 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked through and the cheese have melted and started to turn golden brown. 
  • While the portobello pizza steaks are roasting, lightly grill your burger buns. Once the burger buns are ready, spread vegan mayonnaise and pesto on each bun. Add your salad toppings of choice and place the portobello pizzas in the middle of the burgers. Assemble your burger and enjoy.
