BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza


Here’s the deal, the ‘down low and get jiggy with it’. I had big plans to post a basic recipe for Pulled Pork but then I sprinkled it over pizza dough and my mind was blown.  Up until 5 months ago, I had no idea you could make pizza in your own oven at home.  It was one of those moments where you feel as if you’ve been cheated your entire life.  Twenty dollars for a huge pizza, lacking in toppings versus a practically free pizza, loaded down with everything in the fridge.  I’ll take the latter, thank you very much! While this BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza seems to have a lot of steps, you can do most of them the night or morning of.

Pulled Pork BBQ Pizza (1 of 1)

If you use Averie Cooks One Hour Pizza Dough recipe which you should because the woman is damn brilliant when it comes to dough and put the pork in the slow cooker before you leave for work, dinner will be ready in no time flat. The salty pork counterbalances the sweet and tangy BBQ sauce, making it hard to stop at one slice. Feel free to leave out the white onion or avocado sprinkled on top, however, they cut the richness of the cheese.  Enjoy!

Yields: 1 (15 inch) pizza, 4 – 6 servings


Pulled Pork 

  • 1 lb bone in pork tenderloin
  • 1 12oz jar salsa
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced


  • 2 tablespoons of corn meal
  • 1 pre-made pizza dough or from scratch
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce ( I used Bone Sucken Sauce)
  • 2 1/2 cups pulled pork
  • 6 oz Mexican Blend Cheese
  • 6 oz Cotija Cheese
  • 1/2 of a white onion, sliced
  • 1/2 of an avocado, sliced


Pulled Pork:

Place the pork tenderloin in the bottom of your slow cooker. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients and pour over the meat. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 6 hours. When done, shred the meat with two forks.


Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees F to 525 F ( I am scared my oven might blow up if I go that high)

Sprinkle the corn meal on the bottom of your baking sheet and set the rolled out pizza dough on top. Spoon 1 cup BBQ sauce over the pizza dough, leaving a 1 inch border around the edge.  Sprinkle the cooled pulled pork over the sauce, then top with the cheese and onion slices. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly. Add the chopped avocado.

    Thanks for making my pizza dough and linking up and the sweet things you just said! And yes, making pizza at home is practically free, tastes a million times better and it’s so satisfying DIYing it! So glad you’re a fan as much as I am of it!

      Your one hour pizza dough turned me into a fan! Before that I alway assumed pizza was a huge pain in the ass. I am so glad I found out otherwise.

    I love that you used pulled pork instead of chicken. We always have leftover pulled pork :)

      Thank you! I am sure with you being 6 months pregnant and all, quick dinner recipes are the usual which is the beauty of the pulled pork. Throw it in the slow cooker and forget about it!
