The Pork Trilogy III: Arugula Braised Pork Pizza

Here comes volume 3! You have now braised the pork from Volume I and made some delicious mouthwatering waffled french toast sandwiches. Take what's left of the braised pork and make a homemade pizza to share.

Arugula Braised Pork Pizza
Arugula Braised Pork Pizza Makes one 12-16 inch pizza

Pizza Crust
  • 1 cup of warm water
  • 1 tbsp of white sugar
  • 2 1/4 tsp of active dry yeast
  • 3 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
Pizza Topping
  • 1 cup of beer braised pork
  • 1/2 cup of tomato sauce
  • 10 slices of mozzarella cheese (I cut half a mozzarella ball into 10 slices)
  • 1/2 cup of toasted and crushed almonds
  • 1 cup of baby arugula
  • Arugula dressing: 1/2 tbsp of olive oil, 1/2 tsp of lemon juice, a dash of salt and pepper
  1. Stir water, yeast, and sugar together until dissolved. Add the olive oil (3 tbsp) and the salt. Stir in the flour until well blended. Let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425F. Pat dough into pan or on to a pizza stone using fingers dipped in olive oil.
  3. In a shallow bowl, mix pork and tomato sauce. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and microwave for 5 minutes.
  4. Toast almonds, if you haven't already.
  5. Top pizza with pork and tomato mixture. Then sprinkle the crushed almonds over the mixture. Top with slices of mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake the pizza for 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, toss arugula with arugula dressing. When the pizza is done, just top it with arugula salad and serve.
