Benefits of Mushrooms:

Mushrooms are one of those foods that are often overlooked as a great source of energy an nutrition.

Mushrooms provide a great source of protein, fiber, vitamin B, vitamin C, calcium, and the antioxidants selenium and ergothioneine (ERGO). 

Ergothioneine is a powerful antioxidant unique to mushrooms. It has been studied extensively and has been shown to protect the mitochondria from oxidative stress and reduce the damage UV rays cause.

Instead of using mushrooms as a pizza topping, try using them as the pizza base!
