Copycat Holy Shiitake Pizza {with EASY Garlic Aioli}

Holy Shiitake Pizza 22

This is a copycat version of a pizza from The Mellow Mushroom. I can't even rave enough about how great this pizza is!! Seriously, make it now!

Holy Shiitake Pizza 02

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! :)

2 tbsp. lemon juice
½ tsp. salt

1 pizza crust recipe or your favorite homemade or store bought crust

Baby Portabella mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
White button mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

Add the ingredients to the bread machine, according to manufacturer’s settings. Select the dough setting. After the machine beeps, press the dough onto a greased pizza pan.

Meanwhile, mix mayo, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.

Drizzle the crust with olive oil and bake it at 450°F for ten minutes. Remove the crust from the oven and add sauce, cheese and mushrooms, caramelized onions and snipped chives. Place the pizza(s) into the oven for another ten to fifteen minutes or until golden and bubbly. Serve hot with the EASY Garlic Aioli on the side!

**Note - If you are using your own crust or a store bought one, follow the cooking directions for those.

  1. Oh my goodness this looks YUMMY!! I can't wait to try it this week.

  2. This pizza sounds delicious, Jamie! My hubby is one of those that "doesn't like mushrooms" but mysteriously, winds up eating things with mushrooms in it. Go figure! :) Thanks for sharing your recipe and pinning! Have a great Saturday!

  3. I love this name! Made me lol. I was intrigued by it, but I also really like mushroom pizza. It has never once crossed my mind that they could be bad for my health (too funny!)

    1. Thanks for linking. I giggle every time I think about the name.

  4. That looks AWESOME - but be careful - "The Mellow Mushroom" has had a "Holy Shiitake" pizza for years.

  5. Thanks for sharing with us at MM tonight - the name alone intrigued me! Pinned and sharing this week! I love pizza...

  6. Saw this on the linky party and had to come over for a look. I think this sounds delicious and I must try that garlic aioli. Reminds me of Papa Johns flavors with the garlic butter for dipping ... except better. Pinned.

  7. This looks amazing!! Hopping over from Memories by the Mile. I am now a permanent hostess of Tasty Tuesdays and would love you to link up this recipe. Here is the link

  8. This pizza looks fabulous. I love that it's meatless too. Thanks for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.

  9. This pizza sounds great! I think the shiitake will add a nice flavor. :)

  10. Oh my, this looks delish! And it would be right my husband's alley because he adores mushrooms. Pretty sure if it was possible, he would turn into a giant fungi because he eats so many mushrooms, ha ha ha!

    I would love to have you come link up for Tasty Tuesday with me!

  11. If your mushroom pizza got the 17-year old approval, I know it must really be good. (and I love mushrooms) Thank you for linking to the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. I look forward to seeing you next week.

  12. Great looking pizza, love the aoli, it looks delicious. Hope you are staying warm and cozy in this cold weather and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
