Mushrooms goes on Pizza with…

I’m a big believer in trying many combinations of pizza toppings, until you find the ones that suit you the best. However, to help you navigate the multitude of pizza styles and toppings, try these;

Mushrooms and Cherry tomatoes

Pear and Mushrooms

Mushrooms and Brie

Don’t stop at those though, keep trying various combinations and amounts. I prefer 3-6 toppings; any more, and my pizza is too heavy and no topping stands out very well. That’s just my personal taste though.
