Oookayy so I truly am a mushroom lover. Honestly, I think my favorite kind of pizza is cheese with mushrooms. I must be 80 years old or something. But I feel a tad better because my meat-loving husband also adores mushroom pizza. So there. It’s cool to love mushrooms.
Anyway… even if you don’t love mushrooms all that much, you will most likely, probably still love this dish. I pretty much am obsessed with it and want to make it again right now. It’s got a TON of flavor. a ton. The only thing I think I will change next time is that I will use brown rice instead of white because brown rice is much healthier. This recipe is from the Our Best Bites cookbook- a really awesome blog with awesome recipes.
