Preparing Pork Pizza
Preheat your oven to roughly 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone or tray.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza peel, roll out to be smaller than that.
You start by spreading the sauce around. This pizza calls for Béarnaise Sauce. Spread the Béarnaise Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or ladle.
Then start adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.

Pork fillet is an underrated pizza topping that deserves more attention. It pairs perfectly with classic toppings like pepperonis, sausage and mushrooms to make a hearty pizza.
