korean “seoul food” pizza

I love Korean food and I love pizza. Why not combine the two and create something new and exciting? This pizza is riDONKulous. It’s so good. I decided to use simple pita bread as a crust, but you can use whatever pizza crust you like. I purchased Korean gochujang paste as the base for my…

Have you ever made corn dogs? They’re usually greasy and kind of a hassle to prepare. I decided to give them a whirl in the air fryer and they were not only delicious, they’re super easy to make, and a batch of eight mini corn dogs only calls for 1 Tablespoon of oil! I made…
