This pizza hits all of the right taste buds. It's sweet from the sauce, salty from the pork, and crispy from the pizza crust. 


Store-bought pizza dough - I prefer the Trader Joe's pizza dough but I’ve also used the Whole Foods ones and that one is good too Whole Foods is a bit breadier and Trader Joes give a bit more of a thin crust texture which I love! 


You can also replace the pork belly with chicken and it’s just as good! The only extra step would be to add oil in your pan to cook your chicken and to drain any liquid from your pan before adding the sauce.

It looks like a lot of instructions but it’s actually really simple! Read through it once before getting started.

  1. Make sure the pizza dough is out of the fridge - if it’s too cold it will break when you try to stretch it. I would recommend leaving it out at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

  2. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, red pepper flakes,  (**If using hoisin sauce, add it in now); set aside.

  3. Preheat the oven to 475°F. Heat a large pan over high heat, add pork belly. Try to get your pork belly as crispy as you can, cook for 6 minutes first, mix up the pan and cook for another 6-ish minutes.

  4. Add the garlic mixture to the pan, mix well, covering all pork belly pieces. Next in a small bowl mix the water and cornstarch together until cornstarch is dissolved then add to the pan, mixing well. Add salt and pepper. 

  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a circle (should end up being roughly 16 inches in diameter), transfer to a pizza tray or what you plan on cooking the pizza on, then curl the edges in to create a crust. Heat the butter in the microwave until melted. Add oregano, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and mix. Using a pastry brush spread this mixture all over the crust edges. **If using bagel seasoning, sprinkle it on the buttered crust.

  6. Spread the sauce over the pizza, making sure to push to the edges. Sprinkle ½ cup of the cheese over the sauce. Add the jalapeno, onion, and garlic, making sure to evenly place then all over the pizza. 

  7. Next, add the pork belly. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the pork belly. If adding eggs, crack the eggs directly onto the pizza - or you can crack them in half-way through the cooking time for runnier eggs (this is what I did in the pictures).

  8. Place the pizza in the oven and cook according to the instructions, roughly 10-12 minutes until the edges are browned and the pizza is bubbling. Remove from the oven, and place pizza on a cutting board. Allow to cool for a few minutes, add scallions, sesame seeds and microgreens for that added flare!
