Fun fact about Portobello mushrooms: they are just bigger cremini mushrooms! As soon as I learned that I said goodbye to button mushrooms forever and am cremini all the way. You’re getting soooo much more flavor for the same price as those boring button ones. I should get T-shirts made!

Margherita pizza is classic for a reason. Tomato + basil + mozzarella = love forever. Also known as Caprese (salad), this flavor combo is a winner.

If you’re feeling adventurous and want to mix it up with your toppings, by all means… try adding some olives, chopped bell peppers, spinach… the world’s your oyster (mushroom joke)!
