Natto is fermented soybeans, well known as a Japanese super food. It has an effect of lowering your blood pressure and strengthening your immune system.

However, it is slightly smelly, similar to blue cheese, and has a slimy texture. I don't like Natto myself... But, I do love this pizza! I made this perfect recipe when I was trying to find " How can I eat my disliked foods in tasty way? " 5 years ago.

In this recipe, I'll introduce how to transform it into a very tasty pizza. Basil & fish broth concentrate do ease natto's smell, and mozzarella cheese does a perfect job to ease the sliminess of natto!

You don't like natto? Not anymore!!

  • 4 Pizza crusts
  • 3 Natto packs
  • 200 g (7.05 oz) Tomatoes
  • 20 Basil leaves
  • 200 g (7.05 oz) Mozzarella cheese
  • 3 Natto sauce & Mustard packets *attached to the natto container
  • 2 tbsp Hontsuyu
  • to taste Mayonnaise
  • to taste Shredded cheese
  • to taste Parsley

There are many types and sizes of natto beans. My recommendation is tiny beans, but you can use your favorite.

Chop tomatoes, basil leaves and mozzarella cheese.

Put natto, tomato, basil, and mozzarella cheese in a bowl.

Add sauce & mustard which are enclosed with the individual natto container.

Add Hontsuyu concentrate and mix lightly.

Leave the mixture at least 15 mins. to let the sauce soak into the ingredients.

While you are waiting, make the pizza bread. Pizza flour mix contains all the ingredients you'll need to bake it. So it would be fresh & tasty, and easy! Or you may use pizza crust you can get at the grocery store!

Spread the pizza dough with a rolling pin and make a round shape. *the pizza dough will inflate a little bit like 1.5 times, so do not make it too thick.

Put the natto, tomato, basil, and mozzarella mixture on the pizza crust. *Make some space near the edge so the sauce does not flow to the backside.

Put some mayonnaise over it.

Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.

Bake at 230 ℃ (446℉) for 15 mins.

Sprinkle parsley on top and done!

Even after it cools down, it smells of basil, and the taste is still so good!

You can get Hontsuyu through Amazon or Jungle Jim's in Cincinnati, OH, if you are near there. Jungle Jim's even has natto! It's in the freezer in the Japanese section.
