White Pork Belly Pizza

Pin It PIN IT!

Today’s recipe isn’t exactly light, just as an FYI. But it’s Monday and sometimes you need some pork belly just to get through, am I right?

White pizza with pork belly

Oh sweet mama, this pizza makes me feel all hot and heavy. But then again, that’s just pork belly. I honestly don’t know what it is about that squishy, chewy little meat that gets me EVERY TIME  It’s just so good. Probably because it’s all fat, but you know what, we all need just a little fat to survive. And we certainly can’t eat healthy ALL THE TIME, so might as well enjoy a little pork belly on a busy Monday.

Since I knew I’d be topping this pie with pork belly, I did my best to lighten up the sauce. Instead of normal alfredo, I made a quick white pizza sauce with some low-fat milk, garlic and parmesan. It was so easy and really paired well with the pork belly. If you’re having a crappy Monday, I’m SURE this white pork belly pizza will turn that frown upside down.

If not it’ll make you feel just slightly less homicidal. Which sometimes is the best you can get.

Serves about 8.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: About 12 – 14 minutes


For the sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese

For the toppings:

  • About 1/3 – 1/2 pound pork belly, cooked and chopped into bite-size pieces
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped
  • Chopped basil


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a large pizza pan or stone with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Roll pizza dough out into a large circle (about 1/4 inch thickness) and set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat and add garlic. Add flour and stir to thick. Gradually add milk and stir after each addition. Heat until sauce starts to thicken. Add salt, pepper and cheese. Remove from heat and let sit for about a minute (it will thicken).
  4. Spread sauce over the pizza. Top sauce with pork belly bits, fresh mozzarella (cut into pieces), red onion and salt and pepper.
  5. Bake pizza for about 12 – 14 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Top each slice with chopped basil and enjoy!
