Monday Leftovers: Pulled Pork Roasted Pineapple Pizza

22 Apr

Pulled Pork Roasted Pineapple Pizza

The weather is getting more and more beautiful every day here in New York.  The fact that we can now exit our caves for the season means a lot more is going on = not as much time home = not as much time to cook = EATING OUT!  One of the great things about moving into a new town is you are able to go out and explore the culinary frontier.  Chris, Ella and I just discovered a bbq joint a couple towns over that served something called the “pignic” and if you know our family, you know we had to order it.  (Warning for vegetarians, you won’t be interested beyond this point): The plate was piled high with so much meat, that it easily could have fed a family of 8 (rather than the three of us).  So needless to say, we had leftovers  With so much pork in our fridge, a fresh pineapple on our counter and our love for pizza, we decided to make a Pulled Pork Roasted Pineapple Pizza.  It was the best.  For real.  What can I say, I’m a sucker for our pizzas.

Pulled Pork Roasted Pineapple Pizza

1 1/2 cups leftover pulled pork

1/4 pineapple, spear left intact for roasting

1/3 cup bbq sauce

1 cup shredded mozzarella

Place spear of pineapple under broiler on high and cook it until it starts to char; flip over until other side chars

Place charred pineapple in bowl, cover with plastic wrap and set aside for at least 15 minutes (for juices to emerge) and then cut into 1-inch cubes

Preheat oven with a pizza stone (optional) to 450 degrees

Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface (further instructions here) and place on pizza peel or cookie sheet

Brush bbq sauce on, cover with pulled pork, top with pineapples and finish with sprinkled cheese

Cook for five minutes to make sure it’s cooking evenly, turn pizza around and cook for another five minutes or until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly
