  • Lie the caps stem side up on a baking sheet.
  • Fill the center of each mushroom with a quarter of the arugula, ¼ cup of the pizza sauce and 1 tablespoon of goat cheese. Then place 1 tablespoon onion, 1 tablespoon of portobello stems, a quarter of the sliced cherry tomatoes and couple fresh basil leaves on top of each.
