With Summer right around the corner I'm sure a lot of families will be making Pulled Pork to serve at their backyard BBQ's. I'm assuming like us, most of you will have left over meat. I love a good pulled pork sandwich on a potato roll with creamy coleslaw and pickles but you can only have it so many times before you end up freezing the rest of the meat. This pizza is a great way to use your left over pulled pork.....I challenge you to make this pizza instead!! It's easy, cheesy and ridiculously delicious!!
Whole Wheat Pizza Crust
2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 Large Onion - Sliced Thinly (Caramelized)
1 Cup Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
2 Cups Leftover Pulled Pork
Preheat your oven to 425 F. Cut and caramelize your onion so it is ready to put on the pizza by the time the oven is read y (If you are unsure how to caramelize an onion - See below). Spray your pizza pan with Pam and set aside. Using a little bit of flour roll your pizza dough out into a circle about 1/4 inch in thickness. Spread out into pan so it fit appropriately. Squeeze about a cups worth of BBQ sauce on your pizza crust and spread it out evenly leaving yourself a little bit of crust. We enjoy Sweet Baby Ray's but if you have a sauce you prefer use that one instead.
Spread the shredded meat out evenly over top of the BBQ sauce. Pull larger sections of meat apart so it's not in huge chunks and will be easy to eat. Try and keep the layer of meat as low as possible and to the edge of the sauce.
Top the pulled pork with caramelized onions. For those of you who don't know how to caramelize an onion. In a medium pan over medium, heat up 1 Tbsp of Olive oil and slowly cook the thinly slice onion pieces for about 30 minutes, stirring frequently so they don't stick or burn. S&P them, after a few minutes add some water so they don't stick to the pan and continue to cook until they as soft and light brown. Spread the caramelized onions over top of the pork.
The last layer is shredded cheddar cheese. Then bake the pizza about 15-18 minutes, until the pork has heated through the crust is light brown and crispy and the cheese is completely melted. Allow the pizza to cool at least 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
