Korean BBQ Chicken Pizza

Korean BBQ Chicken Pizza

Slightly sweet, spicy, and savory, this Korean BBQ Chicken Pizza is a delicious twist on a traditional barbecue pizza.

Have you tried Korean BBQ sauce before? I hadn’t even heard of it until I was shopping at Trader Joe’s one day and noticed a bottle. Intrigued by the difference between it and traditional barbecue sauce, I bought a bottle and used it to marinate tofu for a stir-fry. While it is similar to traditional barbecue sauce in that it is slightly sweet with a little kick of heat, it is more savory-tasting and has a back-of-your-throat kind of heat from the ginger and chili paste. It reminds me of a spicier hoisin sauce.

One of my favorite pizzas is a barbecue chicken pizza with broccoli, carrots, and red onion (one of the few times I enjoy onions is on pizza). So after trying the Korean barbecue sauce, I knew I had to try it on pizza. And the verdict: so good! Again, it gives a slightly more umami flavor than traditional barbecue sauces and was delicious with the chicken.

If you don’t feel like going out and buying a bottle, you can easily make your own Korean barbecue sauce at home. I like this recipe from Simply Scratch as she has pictures to guide you through each step. 

So here’s a toast to turning up the heat on pizza!
