One of our favorite meals is pulled pork made in the slow cooker. Although there’s rarely any leftovers, sometimes there’s just enough remaining for one person to enjoy the next day. So this time I decided to stretch the one-person-leftover-meal into a family meal of four by trying something new: pulled pork pizza. I had heard of it before, but hadn’t tried it until now.
Here’s my take on it. You will need the following:
♦ 1 pizza dough ball, home-made or store-bought
♦ 1/2 cup chopped red onion
♦ 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
♦ 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
♦ Preheat oven to 385°F
♦ Roll out pizza dough and place on greased baking sheet
♦ Spread the pulled pork evenly on top of the dough. Make sure to include the leftover juices as well, since you will not be adding any other sauce base to the pizza (e.g. the usual tomato sauce).
♦ Add the onions and mushrooms
♦ Cover with mozzarella cheese
♦ Bake for 15 minutes or until the bottom of the pizza is golden
So the next time you have pulled pork leftovers, try this recipe. It’s delicious!
Side note: You can also turn this into convenient pulled pork pizza pockets, ideal for school lunches.
