I’ve hit the mother of all pop-ups/collabs! I’m doing the guest chef pizza at Homeslice this spring!

It’s been a year (maybe more) in the making. The honor! The excitement! It launches on April 1. (Not a joke!)

The Pizzas: Homeslice Spring 2021

Like my previous pop-ups, the guest chef pizza I’m doing at Homeslice features flavors from my home country of Malaysia. The “Pork Satay Pizza” at Homeslice is inspired by Penang, Malaysia’s food mecca and historically Chinese-majority state, where pork satay is a popular skewered delicacy.

Pork, marinated for 24 hours in a heady mix of spices and aromatics and then roasted, is the main event, along with onions, roasted peanuts and raw onion, on top of a curried tomato base. It has all the vibrant tastes of Malaysia in pizza form. (You can skip the raw onion but if you’ve had street satay, you’ll know it’s essential!)

Ola!

As usual Homeslice will be donating 10% of all revenue from this pizza to Stepping Stones, an amazing charity who help to provide English teaching and other support to the children of migrant workers in and around Shanghai. Homeslice has been able to donate over ¥170,000 to their work, thanks to your support of their guest chef pizzas.

Other pizzas on the Spring 2021 docket include:

The Italian Meatball, a classic of Italian-American homes and restaurants, made with pork meatballs on a red sauce pizza and finished with basil and parmesan.

Sichuan Omnipork, based on the classic Sichuan dish of “fish-fragrant” or yuxiang (鱼香) pork, has garlic, ginger, pickled chilies, Omnipork, bamboo, carrot and wood-ear mushrooms. Will also have a vegan option, topped with Homeslice’s housemade vegan cheese.
