Mushrooms <3 National Pizza Month
Pizza: the ultimate customizable meal. Whether stuffed, thin, deep dish, red sauce, white sauce, vegetarian, meat-loaded, “all-the-toppings” or “cheese only, please!” we can all agree that pizza is a culinary treasure.
Not only do we love pizza for being a perfect vehicle for mushrooms, but also for its ease and versatility! Add it to your weeknight menu for a family-friendly dinner or throw it on the grill for your home tailgate parties with friends. No matter the occasion, pizza is the answer. Add umami-rich mushrooms to the equation, and you’ve got something heavenly on your hands.

Fire up the grill! This pizza is topped with a creamy garlic sauce, a touch of fragrant basil and a flavorful mix of crimini, shiitake, and white button mushrooms.
Mushroom, Mozzarella and Cherry Tomato Pizza
Use a mix of your favorite mushrooms to make every bite of this pizza unique. Cherry tomatoes add a layer of color and smoked mozzarella echoes the earthiness of the sautéed mushrooms.

This pizza is second to naan! Swap out your traditional crust and sauce for soft naan and a sun-dried tomato sauce. Add smokey andouille sausage and meaty mushrooms for a punch of flavor in every slice.
