Pineapple mushroom Korean Pizza is a fun new plant-based take on the classic ham and pineapple pizza. Traditional pizza sauce is replaced by savoury and sweet gochujang pizza sauce. Gochujang is a korean tomato and pepper based condiment that tastes savory and sweet. The pizza is served with a tangy kimchi dipping sauce that is surprising and absolutely delicious. The pizza is served with a refreshing salad.
Featured Local Ingredients
You will need:
Roll out the pizza dough: Lightly flour the counter. Place the dough on the floured surface and dust with flour. Roll out the dough to about 1/4 to 1/2 cm thick.
Oven method: Preheat the oven to 450° F. Place the dough on a lined baking sheet. Use your hands to pull the dough and shape it as desired. Because pizzas cook very quickly on the BBQ, you can easily make individual pizzas. Cut a parchment paper for each pizza.
BBQ method: Preheat the BBQ to max for the pizza. If cooking the pizza on the BBQ, place the pizza stone in the BBQ when you turn it on. The stone needs to be very hot. Place the dough on a parchment paper and cut the parchment in a circle a bit larger than the pizza. Use your hands to pull the dough and shape it as desired.
Gluten-Friendly: Preheat the oven to 450° F. The Gluten Free Pizza dough is already rolled out. The Gluten Free Pizza dough is inside your delivery bag as it is too large to fit inside the meal box. Keep the Gluten Free Pizza dough in the fridge or freezer.
Prepare the ingredients and garnish the pizza: Thinly slice the onion and mushrooms. Cut half the pineapple in 1 cm pieces.
Evenly spread the pizza sauce on the pizza. Evenly sprinkle the pineapple pieces, mushrooms slices, 2/3 of onion slices and the mozzarella on the pizza.
Gluten-Friendly: Use Gluten Free Pizza dough instead of the pizza dough. Bake about 10 minutes in the oven.
Bake the pizza and roast the pineapple
Oven method: Bake in a 450F oven for about 15 minutes or until the crust is golden under the pizza and the mozzarella is bubbly. Roast the last half of the pineapple on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes.
BBQ method: Place the dough and parchment paper on the pizza stone. Bake 3 to 5 minutes or until the crust is golden under the pizza and the mozzarella is bubbly. Roast the last half of the pineapple on the baking sheet for about 1 minute per side.
Garnish the pizza & prepare the salad: Cut the roasted pineapple in 1 cm pieces. In a large bowl, add the lettuce, 1/3 of the onion slices, roasted pineapple and 1/3 of the kimchi dipping sauce. Toss the salad.
Separate the parsley leaves and garnish the pizza. Cut the pizza in slices.
Serve the pizza with the rest of the kimchi dipping sauce and the salad.
