Bahn Mi Pizza:

I’m sharing this ridiculous pizza from a very lazy Sunday pajama day. As in one of those days where you stay in your pajamas aaaaallllll day long. The whole family. Jammies. All day. We are being bubble heads (as in too much screen time) and vegging out completely while a crazy storm rages outside.

Bahn Mi Pizza

Pete and the kids are downstairs, and my lovely mother-in-law is busy making baklava downstairs (smells so good). And I am totally hiding upstairs watching a Twilight marathon. Anyone else this pathetic today!?

Bahn Mi Pizza

But what I am really doing is craving this Bahn Mi Pizza. After I made this sandwich a couple weeks ago, I kind of couldn’t get over it and had to recreate the flavors somewhere else. That’s where this pizza came in. It was my sister-in-law Natalie’s idea and it was pretty genius.

Bahn Mi Pizza

It is all of the amazing fresh flavors of a bahn mi pizza (flavorful pork, fresh cilantro, pickled carrots, cucumbers and spicy delicious sauces) on a crispy golden crust. Dinner tonight anyone?

Bahn Mi Pizza

To make this Bahn Mi pizza, this is what you do:

For the Marinated Grilled Pork (from this recipe):
Whisk together the fish sauce, honey, vegetable and sesame oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and black pepper in a small bowl until well combined. Place a few pork tenderloin medallions in between sheets of parchment or plastic wrap and gently pound them ¼” flat with a meat pounder or rolling pin. Set aside and repeat with the remaining medallions. Place the medallions in a Ziploc bag and pour in the marinade. Seal the bag and shake it around to fully coat the pork. Marinate the pork in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. In a medium sized pan, add 1 tablespoon of canola oil and cook half of the pork over medium-high heat until cooked through, about 2 minutes on each side . Repeat with the other half of the oil and the pork.

For the Fast Pickled Carrots:
Warm the rice wine vinegar, sugar, salt and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan. When you have brought it to a simmer, whisk well to make sure that the sugar and salt have disintegrated. Transfer it to a bowl and let it cool completely. Add the carrots and refrigerate until ready to serve.

For the Bahn Mi Sauce:
In a small bowl, combine the rice vinegar, honey, sesame oil, soy and hoisin sauce and whisk until smooth. Set Aside.

For the Sriracha Sesame Sauce:
In a small bowl, combine the sriracha, sesame oil and rice wine vinegar until smooth. Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Roll the dough out into a large circle and fold over the edges to create a crust. Rub the crust with the 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Bake the pizza in the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
