Bulgogi Beef Pizza

April 27

Korea might not be the first place you think of when it comes to great BBQ but it should be! The secret to this East Asian classic is the full-flavoured marinade. Here, I’ve combined it with another much-loved dish – the humble pizza.

Method
  1. Place the beef in a bowl and add the soy sauce, sesame oil, minced garlic and the grated Asian pear. Add sesame seeds and mix using a wooden spoon to combine the ingredients and break up the beef.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine flour, yeast and salt. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon and add olive oil and lukewarm water. Using a wooden spoon bring the ingredients together to form a rough dough. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and knead with the heel with your hand for 6-8 minutes until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place in a bowl, cover with a damp tea towel or cling film and set aside for 50 minutes or until it has doubled in size.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the ingredients together for the pizza sauce.
  4. Place a large pizza stone (or a large baking sheet) in the oven and preheat the oven to 220ºC/425F/Gas mark 7. Knock back the dough in the bowl and then turn out onto a floured surface and divide the dough into two pieces.
  5. Roll out both dough bases into a 26cm/10in rounds. Sprinkle two flat trays with a little semolina and place each round of dough on top. Shake the tray a little to make sure the dough isn’t stuck to the tray and can be easily transferred to the hot trays in the oven.
  6. Spread a scant spoonful of sauce on each of the pizza bases. Sprinkle the mushrooms, peppers, chilli, kimchi and half of the spring onions over both pizza bases.
  7. Break the mince up into little balls and scatter across both pizza bases. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top of both pizzas to finish.
  8. Carefully shake each pizza onto the hot pizza stone in the oven. Cook for 12 minutes or until the dough is crispy and the mozzarella cheese is golden.
  9. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with finely chopped spring onions and a drizzle of sesame oil. Serve immediately.
