For the first time, a couple weeks ago, I prepared barbecue pulled pork in my slow cooker. Although the recipe was delicious, and we ate quite a bit, we still had a lot left over. I really did not feel like eating pulled pork for lunches over the next few days so I decided to package the rest up into 2 cup portions to freeze for future meals.
At that time I was not sure what other recipes I could use pulled pork in. Then I thought about pizza. A few weeks ago I made taco pizza with leftover taco meat and I figured I could do the same with the pork. Of course, the next thing I did was type “barbecue pork pizza” into google and low and behold a bagillion recipes came up.
The barbecue pulled pork pizza recipe I ended up putting together is a very simplified version just using leftovers and what I had readily available. There are many fancier versions should you be inclined to step it up a notch. However, if you are just looking for a quick healthy throw together weeknight meal then this is for you. Dig in!
