Pizza Friday | Asado Pork Pizza

I had announced earlier that my blogging may take a back seat over the next few weeks.  I don't have any excuses... as I'm enjoying the company of my kids who are in town for their summer break.  Oh well, but I guess I can't help it, as blogging can be addicting.  And here I am in front of my laptop again, trying to find/ squeeze in a little time to write... It's like having an affair, really, haha.

So shhh while my family is busy watching TV, I'm here writing a short post.  You see yesterday my friend dropped off some dough... No, not as in that kind of dough or cash, it was pizza dough.  And just like a Quickfire challenge from Top Chef, I had to use the dough as today's ingredient.  But then again if I was a Top Chef contestant, I would have lost because the dough was given yesterday, hahaha.  No time pressure for me please.


Well I've never made pizza and I thought with the ready made dough, I'm a step closer to making my first.  My inspiration was to take the flavors of an Asian favorite - pork bun or siopao, and add it to the pizza.  So here it goes, my take on the asado pork pizza.

Asado Pork Pizza
Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees. 

For my asado recipe click here.
Slice the pork into thin slices.  Set aside.
Prepare other toppings:
Onions: slice and caramelize onions until they turn brown.
Peanuts:  Roast some peanuts and pound them into tiny bits
Chives: slice them into tiny bits

Shape dough into pizza.  Click here for a tutorial.
Spread asado sauce into the dough.  Layer with onions, pork slices (I also added sausages, you could add more meats if you desire) Sprinkle peanuts and chives.  Break an egg on top of the pizza.

Bake for 10 minutes and your pizza is ready!



Verdict: I've never seen my friend dance a happy dance after taking her first bite... yes it was delish!  Happy Friday!

  4. Love the looks of your pizza! I've yet to try making my own pizza because I've read about how complicated the dough can be. You did a great job even though it was a pre-prepared dough. :)

    1. Hi Jenny, if I didn't have the pre-made dough I don't think I attempted to make my own pizza :) Im so glad my friend gave me a box of dough.

    1. Hi Anh, Asado, sounds Spanish but it's actually the Chinese influence in our Filipino cuisine. I have the link above for the recipe. It's braised sweet soy based dish!
      thanks anh

  14. Wow this is a nice Pinoy take on a classic pizza! There are already a lot of popular variation of this Italian classic like Mexican Nacho Pizza and Indian Satay Pizza, I hope this Filipino version becomes popular as well, and if that happens at least I know who invented it :)

  16. Wow, such great flavor combos! Love the use of asado pork, but what really caught my eye was the peanuts and the egg. Very creative, and the egg looks so pretty. Really good post - thanks.

  20. Oh, Malou! You had this gorgeous breakfast/lunch/dinner pizza since last Friday, and I totally missed it until now...I'm catching up with my comments since all weekend we had a tremendous tropical storm, in our area in S, Florida. Sunday was the worst.

    I sure could have made this most amazing creative and yummy pizza, with a ready-made fresh bread dough from our supermarket. Enjoy your time with your children, family comes first, and you are such a great mom, and a good friend!
    Hugs,
