Make it with Mushrooms: Italian Pizza

I've recently returned from a European vacation to Germany, The Netherlands, Italy and France. It was the trip of a lifetime! We spent 3 weeks travelling the land, seeing the sights and eating as much as we could, because that's what vacation is for, right?!


I am an avid lover of Italian food, with pizza and pasta and the top of my "favourite foods" list. It was no surprise that Italy was my favourite country when it came to all of the tasty eats it had to offer! Each day was spent enjoying wine alongside a personal pizza or plate of pasta. 


I learned quickly that my favourite pizza often came with the same name in the city of Verona, Romeo Pizza, meaning it was a cheese pizza loaded with Sauteed Garlicky Mushrooms! My friend and I were always complimented on our orders, since I would always get the Romeo and her favourite was the Juliet! The perfect pairing for this romantic Shakespearean city.

Lake Garda, Italy's largest lake, had markets with huge selections of dried mushrooms!


These mushroom varieties including Shiitake, Porcini, Morel and Chanterelle, are all harvested locally, along the mountainside in the town of Riva del Garda.


Since returning home, I've been craving my Italian favourites. Searching through all of my delicious recipes, I've got a lot to choose from! Try these mouthwatering Mushroom Pizza recipes to satisfy your cravings too:
