I am not one for cute recipe names (I gravitate more to the prosaically literal titles) primarily because I'm thinking ahead. (This trait spills over into my parenting and annoys my kids who would like to, just once, get a snack from the goodies near the check out line.)
If I post a plain old ordinary "mushroom pizza" now, what if I wanted to post a different mushroom pizza in the future? What would I call the second one? I find it easier just to be exceedingly descriptive.
And Drunken Mushroom Pizza is exceedingly descriptive.
I made this pizza shortly before my spouse deployed, and I chose the topping for 2 reasons: first, I knew I'd be the only mushroom eater in the house for a long stretch, and second, because I knew he'd not be drinking wine for a long stretch. My goal was to duplicate my Skillet Mushroom Dip for Two on a pizza crust. I poured the wine in my German wineglass (love the wine festivals, and love the German efficiency of having the measuring line so the server knows how much to fill the glass) thinking that I'd add a splash to the skillet and then drink the rest.
But I forgot and dumped the entire thing into the pan. Whoops! Change of plan, we'll just make a red wine reduction and get those 'shrooms drunk. We enjoyed this pizza our last Friday night together, and I hope you enjoy it with someone you love (who also loves mushrooms).
