At my house we always have several pounds of leftover pulled pork after a contest, and I love coming up with different ways to put it to use.
This Grilled Pulled Pork Pizza recipe combines two of my favorite food groups…BBQ and Pizza.
To keep it simple I’m using a couple prepared pizza crusts that you can find at the grocery store. (If you do have a favorite dough recipe, I’d love to hear it).
What makes this Grilled Pulled Pork Pizza recipe special is the white sauce I use as a foundation. It’s a variation of my Alabama White BBQ Sauce, and it goes great with pulled pork.
White BBQ Pizza Sauce (makes enough for 4-5 pizzas)
2 cups Mayo
¼ cup Apple Cider Vinegar
½ Tablespoon Black Pepper
½ Tablespoon Granulated Garlic
½ Tablespoon Table Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl and store in refrigerator until ready to use.
I’m firing up my Grilla Kong Ceramic grill for this cook but you can use any grill set up for indirect cooking. Just run the temp up to 400⁰ and hold it steady.
To assemble the pizzas, spoon 1/4 – 1/2 cup of White Sauce onto each crust and spread it out. Add a little finely diced white onion, plenty of shredded cheese (I like a blend of mozzarella, jack, and cheddar), and the pulled pork. Top the pork with additional cheese and a final drizzle of the white sauce.
You want to cook the pizzas one at a time on the grill. Transfer each one to the grill grate using a pizza peel or cutting board.
On my Kong I use the heat diverter to even out the heat but you could also use a pizza stone.
Cook each pizza for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and the crust browns. You’ll want to keep a close eye on it to avoid burning.
Remove the pizza from the grill once the bottom is brown and drizzle with your favorite Hot Sauce. Cut each one into desired slices and serve.
This recipe is super easy and it’s a great way to get the whole family involved. Give it a try the next time you have some left over pulled pork.
