Pizza Tradizionale with Anchovies, Onions & Tabasco Sriracha
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
Featured on 2 prior posts (see most recently 14.075 Pizza Tradizionale with Anchovies & Truff Hot Sauce; see also 14.041 Pizza Tradizionale – Margherita), this brand of frozen pizza is my go-to these days. Actually tastes like it could’ve been made from scratch, better than most delivery pizzas in Korea (see for comparison 14.085 Cheese Pizza).
I cook it 3 ways.
Box to plate in less than 5 minutes, the pizza comes out crispy on the bottom, bubbly on top, gooey in the middle, with strong hints of char from the torch. The base pie has a simple, balanced flavor profile, amenable to any combination of toppings – my favorites include anchovies and onions; maybe with black olives and/or fresh arugula next time.
With a lot of hot sauces on hand these days, purchased for chicken wings (see for example 14.017 Hot Ones: The Pantry Edition), I’m happy that the sauces go just as well with pizza.
