Mushrooms: one of the most popular pizza toppings

Pizza is, without a doubt, the ultimate Italian dish.

And not only can it be found anywhere around the world, but chefs like to vary it so it is adapted to local tastes. Although some people hate them, mushrooms still remain one of the most popular pizza toppings around the world.

A topping that is deliciously healthy

Did you know that choosing mushroom pizza adds a bit of health content to your plate?

  • Mushrooms possess some little known virtues. In addition to being rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and fibre, they are low in calories and unhealthy fats.

The health benefits of mushrooms

The mushroom is an all-purpose savoury food that enhances the flavour of even the blandest dishes, while benefiting our immune system.

  • Owing to its porous texture, it absorbs the flavours of fine herbs like no other.
  • Nutritious mushrooms contain several minerals and vitamins, including copper, selenium, and vitamins B3, B5 and D.
  • Mushrooms are low in fat and consist mainly of water.

Eating mushroom pizza helps diminish the risk of cardiovascular disease, too. And mushrooms also play a role in the fight against cellular ageing because of their high level of selenium, which acts against the harmful effects of free radicals.

And did you also know that…?

The mushroom was one of the first foods consumed by human beings.

  • It is believed that mushrooms have been an integral part of the human diet since the appearance of humankind.
  • Contrary to what many people believe, the mushroom doesn’t belong to the vegetable kingdom; it does not produce chlorophyll and it proliferates on other organisms.

Mushrooms for every taste

  • Although white mushrooms are most frequently used to make mushroom pizza, there are many other types to be tried, including chanterelle, morel and oyster mushrooms.

Whichever kind you choose, mushrooms are an ingredient of choice for the best pizza.
