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!
