BBQ Pork Pizza

I had some leftover pork ribs from dinner the previous night but not enough for everyone to enjoy again.  Needed something to do with the leftover meat.  Sunday night dinner seemed like a great night for pizza and what’s better than a bbq pizza?  You can also use chicken or beef on this. Serve it with a simple salad or coleslaw.

Serves 4-6


  • 1 package refrigerated pizza dough (I used Pillsbury)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 cups shredded bbq pork
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella, Gouda, or other semi-soft cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup bbq sauce
  • 1 large dill pickle, sliced (optional)
  • handful fresh cilantro, chopped

Preheat oven according to package instructions. In small saucepan, over medium heat, add butter and garlic. Stir constantly (do not let garlic brown) for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Roll dough out onto sheet pan and cook for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and brush garlic butter mixture over all of dough. Add shredded pork, cheese, red onion, and drizzle with bbq sauce. Place back in oven for another 6-8 minutes until cheese is melted. Top with cilantro and pickles.
