Sweet & Savoury Pork Pizza
Recipe type: Dinner
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 pizza crust, storebought or homemade
  • 2ish Tbsp herb and garlic cream cheese
  • 5ish Tbsp white cheddar and jalapeno dipping sauce *
  • 2½ cups grated cheese, divided (we love Monterey Jack or Colby Jack)
  • 2 small beets, peeled and grated (raw)
  • ⅛ cup finely diced red onion
  • 1 lb (ish) thinly sliced pork **
  • Balsamic vinegar for drizzling
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh parsley (a good palmful)
  1. Cook pork in skillet with a bit of oil under just done (you can skip this step if you're using leftover pork).
  2. Preheat oven to 425.
  3. Top pizza crust with cream cheese and dipping sauce, spreading both evenly all the way to the edges.
  4. Sprinkle with 1½ cups of cheese.
  5. Top with grated beets, red onion, and pork, then drizzle lightly with a good balsamic vinegar (about 3-4 Tbsp total). Sprinkle on remaining cheese.
  6. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, or as directed on your pizza crust package, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Immediately after removing from oven, sprinkle generously with parsley.
  8. Let sit 2 minutes before slicing and serving.
* I purchased this dipping sauce at Loblaws/Superstore in their President's Choice brand...anything similar would do, or substitute jarred alfredo sauce and 1 finely diced jalapeno. ** This pizza made use of pre-cut, pre-marinated stir fry strips that I can get from my local Nature's Pickin's, but any pork pieces will do! I've also made it with leftover sweet and sour pork tenderloin with excellent results, and chicken or beef would also work well.
