BBQ Mushroom Pizza Recipe | Bon Appétit

As a toddler of suburbia, I’ve a particular fondness for mall eating places, the last word champion of which is California Pizza Kitchen. Specifically, the chain’s BBQ Rooster Pizza looms massive in my reminiscence: sweeter than pizza most likely ought to be, however savory too, with simply sufficient cilantro sprinkled excessive to depend because the inclusion of a vegetable. It was the meal I requested for at the least one grade college birthday and shared with pals many occasions as soon as I obtained my driver’s license and had the liberty to go anyplace (after all we picked…the mall).

This recipe is a vegetarian twist on the CPK fan favourite. The entire heavy hitters are the identical: tangy barbecue sauce, melty cheese (a combo of mozzarella and smoked Gouda for richness and to double down on smoky taste), and candy pink onion. However as a substitute of chopped rooster breast, the meaty part is mushrooms (I like a mixture of king trumpet, maitake, and oyster), which go crispy and tender within the oven in a manner that rooster by no means might. With store-bought pizza dough and your favourite barbecue sauce on deck, it’s a recipe that comes collectively in minutes, no journey to the mall required. —Kendra Vaculin
