Equipment

  • Pizza Stone

Ingredients

  • 1 homemade or store-bought thin pizza crust
  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 large boneless pork chop butterflied
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp Dale's steak seasoning
  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella cheese cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives sliced
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil julienned
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes

Instructions

  • Prepare the pizza crust (see the helpful tip), then set the oven to
    425°F.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a small skillet over high heat. Season the pork chop with salt and pepper, then it sear in the hot skillet for 3 minutes on each side. Be careful not to overcook it! Allow to cool slightly, then dice into small chunks. (Don't worry if the middle is somewhat raw, it will finish cooking while it's baking on the pizza.) Toss the pork in a bowl with the steak seasoning, set aside.
  • While the pork is searing, brush the pizza crust with the other tablespoon olive oil. Bake in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the edges become golden and crispy, but not brown.
  • Allow the crust to cool for a minute, then using the back side of a spoon, spread the ricotta evenly over the entire crust with the exception of about 1/4 inch around the edges.
  • Evenly sprinkle the seasoned pork onto the pizza, followed by the mozzarella, olives, parmesan, basil, and red pepper flakes.
  • Return the pizza to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes (15 if not using a pizza stone), or until the mozzarella is melted and the edge of the crust is brown and crispy.
  • Top slices with fresh ground black pepper, freshly grated parmesan cheese and, if desired, more red pepper flakes.
