Pizza stuffed mushrooms

Want pizza, too lazy to make pizza dough? Yeah I know you just dump ingredients in the bread machine and wait an hour, but I was hungry. This uses some meat and cheese analogs, but I was having a serious pepprioni pizza craving and bought the Smart Deli vegan pepperoni and Follow Your Heart vegan cheese.

1 Serving

12 mushrooms stems removed, so they have a little hole for putting filling

10 pepperoni chopped into bits (stack them and slice, then turn the stack and slice again-I really should start taking photos, will get on that)
1/4 cup shreaded "cheese" I used cheddar flavor-tastes like Grotto's
1 Tbs sofrito (from prior post-will figure out how to link) or 1 clove garlic/1 Tbs diced onion
2 Tbs pizza/pasta sauce
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning (Pizza seasoning from Penzys rocks)
1 TBS panko bread crumbs

Mix the filling ingredients together. Place 'schrooms on small baking tray and stuff with 1tsp mixture. It's fairly moist, so pile it as high as you can without it falling off. Top with a sprinkling of bread crumbs and bake at 400 about 15 minutes or until bread crumbs look toasty. Remove and let cool for a few minutes before serving if you aren't a fan of burning your mouth.

Experiment deemed a success. Next version will have some kind of homemade sausage pizza stuffing, and I'll make the vegan cheese optional.
