In the beginning of the week I made the Pulled Pork Pockets and had leftover pulled pork. I had not made pizza in while, so I decided to make a BBQ pulled pork pizza. What a great use for any leftover meat you have, make a pizza! By adding a drizzle of extra BBQ sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese and even a drizzle of honey mustard over the top for an extra tangy flavor, you have yourself one easy pizza. And it was delicious! I have invested in a bread machine a few months ago, so I even made my own pizza dough. So easy and delicious, it took no effort at all and was so fresh tasting. I used this pizza dough recipe and it was very good. But feel free to try your own, or even just grab a can of dough from the grocery store. Either way, pizzas are a great weeknight dinner because they are easy yet still healthy. So take your leftover pulled pork, or any leftovers you have, and create this pizza for dinner tonight. Make the first bite count!
Total Time: 30 minutes (not including time to cook pulled pork)
Pizza dough, enough for 1 pizza
2 cups BBQ pulled pork (recipe HERE)
2 cups shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup BBQ Sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray’s)
2 Tablespoons Honey Mustard (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease baking pan or pizza pan and roll out dough to desired thickness.
2. Evenly spread pulled pork over dough, leaving space on the edges for a crust.
3. Drizzle the BBQ sauce over the pulled pork. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top. Then drizzle the honey mustard over the cheese. It gives it a nice tangy flavor, but this is optional.
4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly. Let cool a few minutes before cutting and serving.
