Spicy Pork Neck Stirfry Risotto Pizza

Imagine if a pizza, a spicy pork neck stirfry and a bowl of risotto had a love child together. This would be the result. The pie's ingredients rest on a home made risotto "crust", which has been infused with a dashi stock of Japanese katsuobushi & Cantonese flounder powder. 

The tomato sauce is infused with Malaysian sambal, and topped with Guanicale and portabello mushroom. But since guanicale is rather fatty, a little prosciutto adds meatiness. 
On top, the pie is crowned with arugula dressed with a sambal lemon vinaigrette, and finished off with a dusting of Friulano Pecorino. 

It's literally the world on a pizza pie! Follow me on Instagram @JohnLeungYYC for this and more stuff from my #ChefApprenticeLife!"
