Holy Shiitake Pizza {with EASY Garlic Aioli}

Holy Shiitake Pizza 22

Truth ..... I told y'all before that I stink at naming stuff. Sometimes, I actually amuse myself with some of the stuff that I think of. Yeah, I need to get a life. LOL. Unfortunately for you, this is one of those times. Sure, I could have just called this a mushroom pizza - because that's "technically" what it is .... or I could throw a little bit of shock factor and some humor in there with the hopes that some of y'all might just be intrigued enough to come check it out!

I'm guessing if you've made it to this part, you were intrigued or you really just like mushroom pizza! LOL. Any who - This pizza has THREE kinds of mushrooms,  caramelized onions, cheese, chives and a super simple {cheaters} Garlic Aioli - that I think makes the pizza go from being just a pizza to being bomb-diggity!

Even mushroom haters may like this pizza - my 17 yr. old swears he hates mushrooms - he even goes as far as telling me they're bad for his health ..... but even he liked this pizza! Score one for mom! ;) 

You will notice I don't necessarily give amounts for the sauce or toppings - I really believe that is a matter of personal preference. I used about 4 oz. of each of the mushrooms, and I carmelized one medium onion for this recipe - use more or less depending on your tastes or what you have on hand! :)
