Spicy Korean Pork Pizza
The response on my living and dining room tour was so sweet! You all are too kind. I can’t wait to share the upstairs!!
Which, speaking of the upstairs, we have been trying to finish out the guest rooms. We have beds and mattresses in both of them but the other furniture we have been slowing scouting our local Home Goods and local yard sale sites. I scored an awesome end table for one of the guest rooms and this past weekend, I gave Facebook Marketplace a try.
I’ve seen it in my app but it always seemed so sketchy. Although, if you think about it, it’s kind of like Craigslist, too. Equally sketchy and always one of those anxiety-filled moments where as you’re driving up to the person’s property, you are wondering if this is going to be regret or not. Thankfully, my purchase this weekend was a success and I am SO thrilled with the bookshelf I purchased for the guest room. It matches everything in the room perfectly and I had too much fun decorating it, haha
Let’s talk pizza. There’s pizza and then there’s this spicy Korean pork pizza that is a flavor BOMB in your mouth.
If you love anything and everything about Korean flavors, then you will loooove this pizza.
The tomato sauce base is mixed with Korean chili paste (gochujang) and then the pork is cooked with the same. Then you top it off with mozzarella cheese and fresh kimchi.
Basically, this is like an Italian meeting a Korean. You’ve got the Italian parts (I mean, it’s a pizza after all) but then you spice it up (literally) with Korean flavor. Literally devoured this pizza so fast and wish we had another.
You’re probably gonna want to make two of these. Don’t make the same mistake as us!
Italy meets Korea. This spicy Korean pork pizza is a flavor bomb and one pizza you will be glad you made!
- 1 pizza dough recipe, room temperature
- 0.75 pounds ground pork
- 3 tablespoons gochujang sauce, divided
- 1/2 cup marinara sauce
- 1 cup shredded whole milk mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll out your dough on a lightly floured 9-inch pizza pan. Gently stretch it and pull it to fit the 9-inch pizza pan. Set aside.
In a skillet, brown ground pork and break apart into smaller pieces. Add 2 tablespoons of gochujang sauce and season with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, mix together marinara sauce and the remaining 1 tablespoon of gochujang sauce. Spread in an even, thin layer onto the pizza dough.
Add the cheese then the ground pork mixture.
Bake for 12-15 minutes then top with kimchi prior to serving.
