Thai Pork Pizza

Difficulty: 1/5
Time: 35 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 boneless pork chops 3/4-inch thick
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 15-oz package pizza crust (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

PREPARATION

Heat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Place the pizza crust on a baking sheet. Spread the peanut sauce onto the crust. Sprinkle with pea pods and carrots.
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 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time. Cut into thin slices. Arrange on the pizza crust. Cover with cheese.
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.

Serves 4

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