    She concocts her personal kimchi for her Lady Zaza pizza. Kimchi is Korean comfort fare. Chef Ann crafts her grandmother’s and mother’s kimchi recipes. In Chef’s Table: Pizza, Chef Ann informs viewers ‘Crafting kimchi is about scent and flavor.’ Her mother educated her on what flavors good. Some Americans may perceive kimchi as pungent, but when she crowns her Lady Zaza pizza with kimchi, the strong aroma is baked away into a delightful sweetness. ‘Pizza acts as a door to introduce tastes to individuals who may be reluctant to sample it. If it’s on a pizza, you just place trust in it,’

    Upon relocating to the States, her family encountered minimal portrayal of what an Asian lady could be,’ revealed Chef Ann. ‘I am not predisposed like that.’ She fought societal barricades and did things in her own way. ‘If you provide individuals the liberty to be themselves, astonishing things can materialize,’ stated Chef Ann.

    Indulging in a fraction of Chef Ann’s Lady Zaza, the tomato sauce does not overwhelm and her kimchi is sweet. The savory Sakura pork, sliced scallions, and a substantial sprinkling of sesame offer an excellent melody of flavors. What renders this pizza particularly exceptional is her dough. For Chef Ann, crafting pizza dough is akin to crafting kimchi. It’s all about utilizing your hands and savoring, sniffing, and letting it rest leisurely to draw out marvellous flavor profiles and textures.

    Learning to be genuine, she bakes pizzas with components that she adores. When producing pickles with garlic and Thai chilis, Chef Ann resolved to create a pizza that is garnished with her delightful pickles. Her sought-after ‘Minnesota Pickle Pie’ is offered on the NETFLIX BITES menu. The slightly charred baked dough is crowned with smoked onions, slices of her fermented pickles, chili flakes, buttermilk dressing, and dill. When it emerges from the pizza oven, it is garnished with crunchy kettle chips. The flavor profile brings immense joy to patrons who select this pizza.

    She also offers a BBQ short rib pizza on the menu. It comes out piping hot with a heap of arugula leaves atop melted mozzarella cheese and sprinkle of chili vinaigrette. It’s savory, earthy, and has a hint of heat with each bite.

    Her Summer tomato pie listed on the menu is garnished with sweet sungold tomatoes, melted mozzarella cheese, pecorino romano, garlic, basil, and honey.
