Plant-Based BBQ "Chicken" Pizza/Bowl

Updated: Jun 27, 2021

The star ingredient for the "chicken" is oyster mushrooms! Oyster mushrooms shred easily just like shredded chicken, and is a great plant-based option. The mushrooms also taste like whatever you put on them, which makes it awesome for pant-based BBQ "chicken." I love putting this on a pizza, or top it over some greens and a sweet potato! I have put both recipes below for you to try out and enjoy.

(Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free)

(Serves ~3)


1 package of oyster mushrooms, shredded

1/2 of a red onion, sliced thin

3 cups of arugula

Gluten-free/vegan pizza crusts OR steamed sweet potatoes

Homemade BBQ sauce (recipe below)

Homemade BBQ Sauce

2 cups of tomato paste

3/4 cup of pineapple juice

¼ cup of maple syrup

1 tsp of smoked paprika

1 tsp of onion powder

1 tsp of garlic powder

½ tsp of cumin

¼ tsp of mustard powder

½ tsp of dried oregano

¼ tsp of cayenne pepper

Whisk BBQ sauce ingredients together until smooth.

In a pan, sauté the shredded oyster mushrooms and red onions together with 1 1/2 cups of the BBQ sauce. Cook on medium heat for 12-15 mins to make the BBQ "chicken."

Pizza directions:

Prepare your pizza crusts by spreading a few tablespoons of the BBQ sauce on top. Place a cup of arugula on top of each crust, then place the BBQ "chicken" on top of the pizza crust. Bake the pizza at 350F for 12-15 mins.

Sweet potato bowl directions:

Smash the steamed sweet potato in a bowl, top with a cup of arugula and the BBQ "chicken."
