Mu Shu Pork Pizza
  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings


  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 6 shiitake mushrooms, stems discarded
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 piece (4 oz.) pork tenderloin
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO
  • 1 pound store-bought pizza dough, shaped into 4 disks
  • 2 cups chopped napa cabbage
  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced


Preheat a grill to medium. In a medium bowl, combine 1 tbsp. each sesame oil and water, 1 tsp. hoisin sauce and the garlic. In a small bowl, toss the mushrooms with 1 tbsp. sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Slice the pork into 4 pieces and brush with the remaining 1 tbsp. sesame oil; season with salt and pepper.

Place the pork and mushrooms on the grill, cover and cook, turning once, until the pork is barely firm and the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes. Slice the mushrooms and cut the pork into small cubes; add to the bowl of sesame-hoisin sauce.

Drizzle the EVOO on a baking sheet; turn the dough disks in the oil. Press each disk into a 6-inch round.

Place the dough on the grill, cover and cook until bubbly, about 3 minutes. Flip and brush with the remaining hoisin sauce. Cover and cook until well marked, about 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the cabbage and scallions to the mushroom pork mixture. Top the crusts with the mixture.
