Enjoy this Kimchi Pizza bursting with gorgeous umami flavor!  
If you are watching your salt content, please consider the following:
  • Use a pizza sauce or tomato sauce that is low salt or no salt
  • Omit the gochujang which is added to the tomato sauce OR reduce the amount
  • Reduce the amount of kimchi that is called for in this recipe, or be sure to choose kimchi that is not overwhelmingly salty. My mom has a diet that restricts salt, so she has to rinse some of her kimchi. It is an option if you have to watch your salt...but unfortunately won't taste the same!
