Pizza lovers unite!
Have I got the best pizza for you.
I do have to note that this is the third recipe in a row that contains a fried egg.
But really, who doesn’t love to top their food with a nice creamy, runny yolk?
Even Korean pizza.
Now don’t worry, I’m not going to have you make pizza dough from scratch. I mean, if you want to, more power to you.
I just don’t have time for that.
At least not now…maybe someday. I know you guys get me.
Pillsbury has this refrigerated pizza dough that is awesome (note this is not a sponsored post, I just really like the convenience of the crust). You literally unroll it, place it on a baking sheet and go. I find it in the refrigerated section where they keep the pie crust, cookie dough and butter.
The other ingredients are pretty easy to find too, either at the grocery or Asian market. OR, just buy them on Amazon below (affiliate links – I earn a small commission if you buy through these link – it helps me buy coffee to stay motivated to make new recipes!):
If you are using dried shiitake mushrooms, soak them in hot water for 10-15 minutes (or until soft). Squeeze out the excess water then slice.
How to Make Korean Pizza with Kimchi Sauce
Remember to marinade your beef the day before. If you don’t marinade it overnight, the flavor won’t be as intense.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Heat a tbsp. of cooking oil in a wok over medium high heat, until smoking. Add the beef and cook for 3-5 minutes, until crisp and caramelized on the outside. Remove from heat and set aside.
To make the kimchi pizza sauce, heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until lightly toasted.
Add the kimchi and cream and cook until reduced by half (5-10 minutes). Add any salt to taste.
Place your handy dandy pizza crust on a baking sheet and spoon the pizza sauce on, as thick or think as you like.
OPTIONAL: use a pizza stone. Make sure the pizza stone is heated in the oven for 20 minutes. Dust with cornmeal. Place the ROOM TEMPERATURE crust on the pizza stone. If the crust is too cold, you run the risk of the stone cracking.
Add the beef, kimchi, onions and mushrooms. Spread the burrata on top and top with slivers of green onion.
Bake for 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown and crispy.
Slice with a pizza cutter and serve with a fresh fried egg on top. Sprinkle with fried garlic and gochugaru. This part is optional, but totally recommended!

Bulgogi Beef Korean Pizza
- Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Add the beef and marinade overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 400F. Heat a wok over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the wok.
- Add the beef and cook for 3-5 minutes, until crisp and caramelized on the outside. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Place the flatbread (or naan, pita, premade pizza crust, etc.) on a lined baking sheet and spoon about 1/2 cup of the kimchi sauce on (see below for sauce instructions).
- Add the beef, kimchi, onions and mushrooms. Spread the burrata on top and top with slivers of green onion.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until crust is golden brown and crispy.
- Slice with a pizza cutter and serve sprinkled with fried garlic and gochugaru.
Kimchi Pizza Sauce:
- Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until lightly toasted.
- Add the kimchi and cream and cook until reduced by half (5-10 minutes).
- Any kind of pre-made pizza crust, naan bread, pita bread, etc. can be used in place of the flatbread.
- Cut the beef in small pieces, 1/2" if you can. They fit n the pizza better the smaller they are.
- Fry the beef in batches to allow it to caramelize on the outside. Frying too much at once crowds the pan and prevent a crust from forming on the beef.
- You can substitute chicken or pork for the beef. Try this Spicy Pork Bulgogi on top.
- Add additional gochugaru on top to make it spicier. You can also add 1 teaspoon of hot gochujang to the kimchi sauce while cooking it to add some spice.
