Abnormal ID Request (Ohioans, please help)
    #3466460 - 12/08/04 08:11 PM (12 years, 18 hours ago)

This will likely sound stupid to many of you, but I am looking for the name of a specific mushroom. Hopefully some Ohio folk will be able to help out as they are likely the only one's who will know what I am talking about. I am going to describe it a bit rather than come right out and ask, for those of you who like to figure things out.
There is a chain of pizzerias I used to frequent when I lived in Ohio that, imo, made pretty damn good pizza. Donato's is the name. I've found similar places elsewhere, but what was the best (and unique) thing about the place was the mushrooms they used.
They weren't the plain, brown-greyish ones (small ports? oysters?) that most places use on pizza. They were a white, almost yellow color with dark gills. But not the ones found in most grocery stores. These seem to be a bit more fibrous, meat-y almost. These also had a VERY distinct flavor to them. Nice and tart.
I have been pining for some of these for years now, and thanks to this site, I just might be able to make some of my own. If only I knew what they were.
Please share some knowledge and help out a hungry guy with a new hobby.

I plan on doing so once I go back to Ohio for xmas, but generally the staff in a pizzeria is less than knowledgable.

I think the best your going to get with that description is some sort of edible mushroom. Like i said try the gormet and medicinal mushrooms forum and culinary arts forum.

I don't recall anything special about the mushrooms on Donato's Pizza. :undecided:

The best bet would be to call and ask who their mushroom supplier is. It will usually be a local farm. You can then call and ask them.

suimush: that's why I was asking for Ohio-folk, specifically. They would likely have encountered them first-hand. but I'll try the culinary/gourmet if this brings no results.

shroomydan: really? that was the first thing I noticed about there pizza. hmm, it's been about four years since I've eaten there, maybe they've changed.
I'll try your idea once I get back in Ohio next week...

Donato's Pizza is the !!best!! pizza in Ohio besides Marions.  The mushrooms seem different, but I think they're the same as the other pizza joints use (simple white buttons).  I think the differnce is that the other places use mushrooms that have been jarred, sitting in water, salt, and preservatives, donato's uses fresh ones...??? you should mosdef ask the store manager though, I know very little about pizza mushrooms :smile:
