Marinate ground pork with 1 tbsp coconut aminos + ½ tbsp sesame oil. Mix well and set aside in the fridge for 10-15 mins. Make dan dan zoodle sauce, mix well and set aside.
Crisp up pork: Preheat a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat, when hot, lower the heat to medium. Add 2 tbsp avocado oil. Swirl the oil around the skillet. Add aromatics (garlic, white parts of scallions, ginger, and Sichuan peppercorns). Season with a small pinch of salt and lightly sauté until fragrant (about 8-10 seconds). Add marinated ground pork. Keep sautéing until the pork breaks further up into finer pieces. Add chopped pickles and 1 tbsp coconut aminos. Sauté over medium heat and uncovered the skillet until the moisture content has evaporated and the ground pork gets crisp up but not burnt and almost close to fried bacon bits texture. Turn off the heat. Mix-in a handful of green parts of scallions (save some for topping). Set aside.
Assemble: divide dan dan sauce into two large bowls. Add zucchini noodles, top with 2-3 tbsp crispy ground pork per serving bowl, chopped almonds, and green parts of scallions. Drizzle with a bit more hot sesame oil (optional) if you like. Serve immediately.
