Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

serves 6 as an appetizer


I have made this many times in the oven and you can easily vary the stuffing. 

Italian sausage works great, veggies or whatever you like.

Anyway, I thought I would try it in my pizza oven because I am always looking for more things to cook in it!

That said, if you want to do this in the regular oven..375 degrees for 20-25 min should do it!


3/4 lb crab (dungeness will work fine, no need for jumbo lump here since you will be mixing it up)

1/3 cup whipped cream cheese

1/3 cup finely chopped red bell pepper

1/3 cup finely chopped red onion

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

zest of 1/2 orange


20 large mushrooms


Mix all ingredients together except mushrooms.

Take the stems off the mushrooms and using a small spoon, hollow out the inside of the mushroom to make room for more stuffing.

Fill each mushroom cap and pile up (it will shrink a bit when cooking).

If using a pizza oven, place on soaked plank, cook 10-15 minutes rotating a few times during cooking until filling is bubbling and browned.

If using a regular oven, place on a sheet pan or glass baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes until filling is bubbling and browned.
