Kimchi and Bulgogi Pizza

My girlfriend and I made a few pizzas one night a few weeks after we got back from Korea, not finding any restaurants there that sold kimchi pizza.

We did however find bulgogi pizza at the Gwangju Bus Terminal.

Anyway, so we tried to make our own kimchi pizza.

We made half 'n' half Kimchi and Bulgogi Pizza because we didn't really know how it would turn out. You'll have to excuse the quality of the photos - at the time I wasn't thinking of ever sharing these photos so I just used my phone.

We prepared the bulgogi as usual - bulgogi sauce from the supermarket, beef, diced vegetables. Fried them up. The kimchi we just sliced up a little. We sprinkled the whole base with some cheese just to help everything sick.

Since we had some pizza bases and bulgogi left over, we made another smaller one.

On Reflection

At the time, we enjoyed the pizza we made and of course were excited to eat it. But we could have cut the kimchi up into smaller chunks - maybe fried it with some pork just to give it some some flavour. The bulgogi side turned out well though. In the pizza restaurant I'd imagine they used egg and mozzarella cheese as well as a thick base. 

I have some other ideas though now and more experience cooking kimchi with other foods so hopefully it will be better if I try it again.
