  • 6 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems on, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces cremini mushrooms, stems removed, thinly sliced
  • 5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 medium pizza crust (about 12 inches)
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan
  • ½ cup walnut halves
  • Parsley leaves, for garnish
  • Honey, for drizzling


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Heat a large sauté pan over medium heat, and add 4 tablespoons olive oil. Add mushrooms and salt, and sauté 5 minutes, until mushrooms soften. Stir in garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice and tamari. Cook 1 more minute. Set pan aside.
  • If using raw dough, roll out thinly and place on a baking sheet. Prebake 10 minutes before adding toppings.
  • Brush pizza crust with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Top with mushrooms and Parmesan. Bake 10 minutes, until crust is golden and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, heat a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Add walnuts, and toast 3–4 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant, stirring continuously. Roughly chop.
  • Garnish pizza with toasted walnuts and parsley, and drizzle with a touch of honey.


Tip: No need to remove shiitake stems; the cooking process will soften the stems sufficiently and maximize this flavorful mushroom.
