Which mushroom is used in pizza:
You can use any mushroom in pizza as they have meaty flavor after they have been cooked. However, the best mushroom to use when making mushroom pizza is the Portobello mushroom.
Can you eat the gills of a Portobello mushroom:
Yes, absolutely! You can eat the gills of a Portobello mushroom. However, the taste may be a little strong. The gills and stems can be saved to add on pizza or to make mushroom soup.

After removing the gills with a spoon and cutting the stem, I clean the Portobello mushroom cap with a wet paper towel and make sure to remove any dirt that was left over while packaging.
