  • 1 cup Sweet and sour sauce instructions below*

WILD DOUGH

  • 2 cups Sourdough starter active
  • 1 cup Bread flour
  • 1 tsp Salt

SWEET AND SOUR PORK*

  • ½ lb Pork butt
  • 1 cup Cooking oil
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1 Green onion
  • ½ stalk Celery
  • ¼ Red pepper
  • ¼ Green pepper
  • ¼ White onion
  • ½ tsp Soy sauce
  • ¼ tsp Sugar
  • ¼ cup Cornstarch
  • 1 cup Pineapple tidbits with juice
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch
  • ¾ cup Water
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Ketchup
  • 2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp Soy sauce

Instructions

Wild Dough (1 hour)

  • Make your dough by mixing the sourdough starter, flour and salt together (adding a bit of flour at a time until it takes shape but is still a little sticky) and knead the dough for 30 seconds.
  • Place the dough in lightly floured bowl and cover with a towel, set aside for 1 hour. (The pizza steel or stone needs to preheat for 1 hour as well, so preheat oven to 550 degrees after you finish making your pizza dough)

SWEET AND SOUR PORK*

  • Dice celery and green onion. Cut red and green pepper, and white onion into 1" cubes.
  • Cut pork into 1" x ¼" slices, removing excess fat. Add pork slices to medium bowl, add 1/4 tsp. sugar, soy sauce, egg white and green onions. Mix well and marinate for 30 minutes, then add ¼ cup cornstarch, making sure to coat all the pork.
  • In wok, heat 1 cup of oil to medium heat. Add pork and cook 6-8 minutes or until golden brown both sides, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon and let rest on a paper towel lined plate.
  • Carefully remove some excess oil from wok, until there is about ½ cup remaining. Add celery, white onion, red and green pepper, still cooking on medium heat for 6-8 minutes, or until cooked. Remove veggies and set aside.
  • Carefully remove excess oil from wok, until there is about 2 tbsp. remaining. Add pineapple tidbits with juice, water (only ½ cup), 2 tbsp. sugar, apple cider vinegar, ketchup, and soy sauce, bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch and cold water (only ¼ cup) and add to wok, mix until sauce thickens to desired consistency. Reserve 1 cup sauce. Add pork and veggies and mix well. Reserve 2 cups.

PIZZA (8-10 minutes)

  • Grate mozzarella.
  • Preheat oven to 550 degrees F. with baking steel or pizza stone inside the oven for 1 hour.
  • Flour surface and roll out the dough. Put a floured pizza peel underneath the dough. Add sauce, mozzarella, and sweet and sour pork. Pat down the toppings before putting into the oven.
  • Bake pizza in the oven at 550 degrees F. for 8-10 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes then slice it up!
