Belly Pork Pizza....tis the season to experiment!

Well, yes, odd I know, but I had to give it a go – and I didn’t get it quite right but I will next time – if there is one – which there may well be. I have read of places like Jamie Oliver’s Union Jack messing about with pizzas, topping them with English style food, and I know of the porchetta pizza which is topped with cooked slices of stuffed roast pork. Anyway, I sallied forth yester eve with my own version.

My kids loved them – especially my son who rolled his and sliced it into pizza pork rolls! I used ready made pizza bases as time was of the essence last night.

250 gm of stuffing
4 pizza bases
A little melted butter
Tbsp of finely chopped parsley
Mozzarrella
4 slices of belly pork
A small quantity of runny apple sauce
Fresh sage leaves
Black pepper

I brushed each pizza base with a little melted butter in which I had stirred some finely chopped garlic and parsley. I grilled 4 slices of seasoned belly pork til just done, then sliced each one; though next time I would slice them finer. I placed 4 pieces of mozzarella on each pizza and then added the sliced pork. i then dotted some crumbled stuffing around, followed by a drizzle of apple sauce over plus some chopped fresh sage.

A dash of black pepper then into the hot oven for 8 minutes.

Next time I would add more mozzarella.

They were fun to make and interesting. Worth giving a go and altering to your own tastes. Warning – very filling! Christmas experimentation over – now back to my shopping list – though why I bother I am not sure as I never stick to it!
