Recipe from Jason’s BBQ Adventures
If you make pulled pork on a regular basis, you quickly learn that you need to come up with fresh ideas on how to eat the left overs. Maybe you don’t have this problem, but in my house I sure do as I am the primary eater of the pulled pork and I smoke 2 butts at a time, there is always lots and lots of great left overs. One of my favorite thing to do with the left overs is to make Pulled Pork Pizza, it is very quick, simple, and easy. This is a perfect thing to make when you want to grill, but it is raining, snowing, slushing, and just plain crappy outside like it was this past weekend here in Iowa.
Pulled pork pizza is a great way to use up left over pulled pork. It is quick, simple, and delicious!
Although this is a relatively simple dish to make it has a lot of different flavors. The savory meat and sweet onions would be enough but the addition of barbecue sauce with, depending on the bottle you choose, tomato, spice, heat and even smoke leaves this recipe bursting with many different tastes and aromas. This plus the fat from the pork leads me to want to pair it with a contrasting flavored beer; a beer with comparable flavors would get lost in the taste of the pork and be little more than just wet. So my pairing choice here is a bright and citrusy American Pale Ale. The strong hops notes will dance with the spices of the barbecue sauce and the malt from the beer will match up with the savory meat while the bright notes of the beer will nicely cleanse the palate.
