Char siu is a popular way to flavour and prepare barbecued pork in Cantonese cuisine and a very popular staple of Yum Cha. By combining some quintessential ingredients, this Chinese BBQ Pork Pizza is incorporating classic flavours and elements you might find in hawker stalls and street markets all over China and Southeast Asia. In this recipe I have created a balance of the sweet, salty, sour and umami typical of Chinese cuisine.
