Thai Pork PizzaRecipe provided courtesy of Pork, Be Inspired®.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 boneless pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 (15-ounce) package pre-baked pizza crust (such as Boboli)
1/2 cup Thai peanut sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup pea pods, thinly sliced
1/4 cup carrots, shredded
cilantro leaves, chopped, if desired

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Place the pizza crust on a baking sheet. Spread the peanut sauce onto the crust. Sprinkle with pea pods and carrots.
  3. Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper. Add the pork chops to the skillet and cook 4 minutes until browned and internal temperature reaches 145°F (162.7°C), followed by a 3 minute rest time. Cut into thin slices. Arrange on the pizza crust. Cover with cheese.
  4. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro if desired.

Makes 4 servings.

Tip: Use 1 1/2 cups leftover cubed cooked pork instead of pork chops.
