Ingredients

  • 1 pound pizza dough
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce, or more or less depending on your sauce preferences
  • 1 cup pulled pork
  • 2-3 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey jack, or a combination)
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Place a baking stone in the oven and heat oven to 500 degrees (or as high as it will go). If you don't have a pizza stone, just assemble the pizza on a greased baking sheet.
  2. Divide dough in half and one piece at a time, stretch or roll the dough.
  3. Place dough on a pizza paddle that has been lightly coated with cornmeal or flour. Shake the paddle to make sure the pizza is not clinging to it.
  4. Spoon desired amount of bbq sauce on pizza dough.
  5. Top with pulled pork, bacon, red onion, roma tomato, and cheese. Note: If your pulled pork does not have sauce on it, you may want to mix a little in with it.
  6. Sprinkle with green onion and cilantro. (Or you can do this just after the pizza is baked.)
  7. Transfer to pizza stone or place baking sheet in oven. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  8. Repeat with second piece of dough.

Recipe Notes

I find it's best to allow pizza dough to come to room temperature before attempting to stretch it. If you are having trouble stretching it, let it rest for 5 minutes and then resume.
