Method

  1. Heat oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and stir-cook until translucent and lightly brown, approximately 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in balsamic vinegar, Maggi Seasoning, brown sugar, garlic, and oregano. Continue to stir-cook until liquid has evaporated and a thick glaze coats the onions, approximately 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Toss pork belly in Maggi Seasoning and five-spice powder. Set aside.
  4. Roll dough out with flour into a rope about 18–24 inches in length. Cut into 16 equal pieces, and roll into tight balls. Toss with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Heavily coat bottom and inside sides of 12-inch cast-iron pan with olive oil. Arrange the cheese-coated dough on bottom of pan. Press down firmly to cover the entire bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with any remaining mozzarella. Top with pork belly, and evenly distribute queso fresco.
  6. Bake for 25–30 minutes until dough is cooked through and cheese is bubbly and brown. Remove from oven, top with onions and basil, and serve.
