Leftover BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza with Pineapple Recipe

This pizza recipe is a frugal cook’s delight as it is made from leftovers. You can use shredded chicken as well for this innovative and delicious dish.


Pulled pork in all of its diverse forms is becoming more and more popular as a barbecue. It is usually made from the shoulder or mixed cuts and is cooked using a low-heat over a few hours. This renders the resulting meat tender enough so that it can be pulled or broken into individual pieces.

This pizza requires about 40 minutes of preparation and 55 minutes in total including cooking time.
