The Chicken Mole Pizza Pie

By: Lawrence Bonk

It used to be that pizza featured cheese and sauce and, if you were lucky, pepperoni. In recent decades, however, pizza has come to mean just about any circular bread-based concoction usually topped with cheese. Case in point: chicken mole pizza.

In case your definition of Mexican food primarily includes Taco Bell, mole usually refers to a chocolate-based simmer sauce. That's a gross over simplification but, regardless, it tastes amazing. East coast pizza chain Mellow Mushroom just unveiled their Fully Blazed Chicken Mole Pie, which replaces tomato sauce with chocolate sauce and pepperoni with chicken. Other toppings include mozzarella, feta cheese, caramelized onions and mushrooms.

In addition to the pie, the chain also offers a chicken mole sandwich, which throws the aforementioned toppings onto a giant hoagie roll.
