It's in the docs.

LVM can do (in effect) linear appending and RAID0 internally.

If you want RAID5, you just do it underneath LVM.

Create one or more RAID5 set(s) using RAID tools (not part of LVM). This
will give you one or more software RAID device(s).

Then create LVM PVs on the RAID devices. The rest is all normal LVM
