In the beginning the Knott’s family created the fried chicken and boysenberries. The park was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of Ghost Town. Today the boysenberry reigns supreme and is highlighted by the #BoysenberryFestival, running April 1-23, 2017 at Knott’s Berry Farm.
As the event has grown in popularity, so has the extraordinary menu, with Knott’s chefs working on creating new concoctions each year. One of the new 2017 menu items is Boysenberry Pizza, and we were fortunate enough to sample this new item during a preview event.
The boysenberry pizza features a boysenberry cream sauce, chopped black forest ham, goat cheese, slivered almonds, caramelized onions and arugula, with a Boysenberry/Sriracha drizzled on top.
The boysenberry pizza provides a nice array of flavors from the creaminess of the goat cheese, to the crispy ham, to the little bit of heat from the sauce.
So what did others think of the boysenberry pizza?
