This Noodle Pizza Is Simply Un-Pho-Gettable


When homie Josh Elkin rolls into town, I like to pick his brain about two things: food and comic books. After hearing his thoughts on the movie Deadpool, the topic of pho came up (for some reason). The Vietnamese noodle soup has become quite mainstream in the last few years, even as far as getting fusion creations like the Pho Burger and the Phorrito.

There was a fire in that Canadian rapper’s eyes and, shortly after, the Pho Pizza was born.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • steak
  • chili powder
  • olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • lime
  • rice noodles
  • 2 eggs
  • spicy garlic sauce
  • Hoisin sauce
  • onion
  • Thai basil
  • sprouts
  • jalapenos
  • Sriracha

Here’s what to do:

Throw a cut of sirloin steak in a freezer bag.

Add your chili powder, olive oil, salt, lime and garlic powder and let it marinate.

Boil your rice noodles and allow them to drain and cool a bit.

Fry up your steak.

Add your two beaten eggs to the rice noodles and fry them up in the shape of a pizza crust.

Mix together your Hoisin sauce and spicy garlic sauce. Three tablespoons each should be more than enough.

Pour your sauce mixture on your pho crust and spread it around.

Slice up your steak.

Now, start topping your pizza with sliced onions, basil, sprouts, jalapeño and steak slices.

Finally, add a drizzle of Sriracha on your Pho Pizza before slice that bad boy up.
