For Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta at Disney California Adventure is serving up a special pizza that will keep those vampires away.
Apparently getting rid of vampires is costly, though. The “Anti-Vampire Pizza” clocks in at $8.99 per slice, and the slices aren’t that big. But considering that the plain cheese slice is $7.49 and the pepperoni slice is $7.99, we’d say the extra dollar is well spent.
This pizza is a white pizza with a roasted garlic sauce instead of the traditional tomato sauce. I love white pizza, and this sauce is really fantastic. It is creamy and the roasted garlic flavor is not overpowering, so it’s a great base for the rest of the toppings. These include marinated chicken, mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, and a sprinkle of shredded smoked gouda cheese. On top of all that there are some slivered scallions and a tomato-harissa sauce drizzle.
All in all, the flavors work really well together on this pizza. We also thought the crust was fine; not a culinary masterpiece but not some disappointing theme-park-pizza crust either.
You could certainly do better at Disney California Adventure for a counter-service meal. But if your traveling party insists on this location, the Anti-Vampire Pizza is the best offering on the menu.
