Loaded with ingredients and flavor, this spicy Asian pizza recipe from Heather Christo offers a new way to enjoy the classic Bahn Mi sandwich. Rather than pressing the ingredients between the slices of a bread bun, this recipe piles marinated grilled pork, Bahn Mi sauce, pickled carrots and a Sriracha sesame drizzle atop a crispy crust.

With a mix of ingredients like carrots, cucumber, cilantro, ginger, peppers, soy sauce, fish sauce, sugar, honey, Sriracha and garlic, the pizza shows off a range of Vietnamese flavors from fresh and salty to spicy and sweet. Although it does take time to chop up all of the ingredients and prepare the dough, sauces, meat and pickled carrots, this homemade pizza is an inventive way to reimagine an Italian staple with a taste of Asia.
