Monthly Recipe: Miso Pizza

This month I wanted to cook something quick and easy that would use up some of the ingredients I already had in my cupboards. Fortunately, I came across this fantastic recipe for Miso Pizza on the Japan Centre website

Miso Pizza


*NB. I have doubled the topping ingredients as there didn’t seem to be enough sauce in the original recipe, and I have also replaced chicken with Quorn chicken to make it vegetarian.

  • pizza base
  • Quorn chicken strips (or alternative vegetarian topping)
  • 1 onion
  • 400g melty cheese
  • 2 tsp red miso paste
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise (classic Japanese pizza topping!)
  • 2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp soy sauce

Cooking: Miso Pizza


In a bowl, mix the red miso paste, mayonnaise, sesame seeds and soy sauce.

I have to say, this pizza was even more delicious than I hoped it would be! Miso makes an excellent pizza topping. ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ll be back in February with a new recipe. If you have any suggestions, or perhaps you would like me to try one of your recipes from a book or website, please leave a comment below or get in touch! All the recipes I try on this blog have some connection to Japan and, because I don’t eat meat, they need to be vegetarian or pescetarian. I’m particularly interested in helping to promote Japanese recipe books, so do let me know if you have one I might like!

  1. This looks great! I am a Vegan so I will substitute the mayo for Veganaise, and use the Daiya brand cheese instead. I adore miso and try to make a hot drink with it daily and also use for soup, and a vegan miso gravy. Can’t wait to try it!
