Pulled Pork Pizza
What will those two not put on a pizza??? That remains to be seen……my guess anything. If you can eat it, we can make it a pizza.
A typical conversation at our house.
Marty: “What do you want for supper?”
Tim: “ I don’t know. What do you want?”
Marty: “I ask you first, your choice”
Tim: “ How about pizza?”
So it goes……as mentioned before,we eat a lot of pizza. We do mix it up though……..Pulled Pork Pizza…oh yeah!
Tim hates the term ‘pulled pork’……come to your own conclusion here….
Terminology or not, pulled pork is the bomb! On a sandwich and topped with a creamy cole slaw….hmm…hmmm…hmmm!
Now, about that pulled pork……you can of course can make your own. But if you are pressed for time or want a super awesome pulled pork, check out the Jack Daniels pulled pork in the meat department of the grocery store……it is something else!… Heats in the wave in minutes, and in it’s own container….how great is that????
Can it be a pizza?…..You bet!! Thick crust (instead of a bun), pulled pork, cabbage slaw, but with oil and vinegar (mayo…..not so much), red onions, and cheese.
Baked to a hot juicy, drip down your face, pass the napkins please, Pulled Pork Pizza.
I used a cast iron skillet….”cause I can”, she says slightly sassy…..lol…but seriously, you can use a pizza pan, stone, or a cookie sheet. Pulled Pork Pizza… a sandwich on a slice!

- Slaw Mix
- 2 cups shredded cabbage
- ¼ cup julienne carrots
- 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste ½ teaspoon each mustard and celery seeds
- 1 recipe pizza dough

- Place warm water in a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer, sprinkle with yeast and sugar and stir. Let it rest for about 10 minutes, the mixture will be bubbly and foamy.
- If using a stand mixer ( which I did) with the hook attachment on start on slow speed and add olive oil and salt, mix it for about 1 minute and start adding the flour. If mixing by hand mix with a wooden spoon.
- After all the flour is incorporated let your stand mixer knead the dough for you, about 10 minutes this dough will be elastic and slightly sticky. If kneading by hand, use a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.
- Place dough in a greased bowl turning the dough so all surfaces are greased.
- Cover your bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let it rise until double in size, about 30 minutes.
- Punch down the dough and shape into a pizza!
- Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk until emulsified.
- Cabbage Slaw:
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Top with dressing.
- Preheat oven ot 425*
- Shape pizza dough. I used a cast iron skillet but you can use a pizza stone or cookie sheet. Brush with olive oil and bake for 10 minutes.
- Heat pulled pork.
- Remove pizza crust from oven and top with heat pork and cabbage slaw. Top with red onions and cheese.
- Return to oven for 20 minutes or until the crust is done and the cheese is melted and turning brown.
