Have you ever made kimchi pizza? Well, if you haven’t, today’s the day! I’m going to share a quick, easy and more-ish kimchi pizza recipe I came up with a few weeks ago.

The idea came from garlic bread. I love garlic bread. Do you?

I had this very thin crust pizza base (which I don’t normally use) in the fridge as a leftover from a party. I didn’t know what to do with it. Then I had this crazy (?) idea that I should combine garlic bread filing + kimchi on it.

Except that I didn’t think butter would go well on a pizza base so I replaced it with extra virgin olive oil. And voila!  Garlic Kimchi Pizza came out.

Seriously though, I didn’t expect much from it. Frankly, I didn’t know what to expect.

Though it turned out that my garlic kimchi pizza was very crispy and savory with a hint of Kimchi flavor (it was very subtle). I really liked it.

I thought this would be a perfect entree dish before a western style main meal. (It won’t fill your tummy as the ingredients as you can see from below are very minimal.) I shared it with my husband, but I really didn’t want to share it. Yes, it was that good! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think baking this pizza on a pizza stone made a difference for making it crispy too. Unofficially I would like to call this “Garlic Kimchi Pizza Chips”. The texture was nearly as crunchy as nacho chips.

It might not be everyone’s preferred texture but certainly it was mine. I think this recipe can be varied further with additional toppings (e.g. bacon, fresh basil leaf and cheese etc), but I want you to try the original recipe first as the taste won’t be the same if you add more toppings.

Anyway, I hope you get to try this recipe soon!

Note

  • Your results might be slightly different to mine depending on the type of pizza base you use, whether you’re using a pizza stone or not, and also the types of oven you use.
  • If you don’t like the crunchy texture of the pizza, you should cook it for less time or cook it at a lower temperature (or both).

  1. This looks excellent as a side for many Korean dishes. I made a Kimchi pizza last year and jazzed it up with onion, capsicum, chilli flakes and chilli cheese kransky. It was amazing, the kransky and kimchi go real well together.

    • I’ve never tried kransky, but it sounds delicious! But even without those fancy ingredients, you can still make tasty kimchi pizza! Just follow this recipe. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜‰
