BBQ Pork Pizza with Roasted Corn, Jalapeno, and Smoked Mozzarella is super easy using leftover bbq pork. This BBQ Pork Pizza pops with flavor and is a great addition to a weekly meal plan.
With a few homemade ingredients and the help of some ready-made foods, you can have a tasty, original pizza on the table in about 30 minutes, like this BBQ Pork Pizza or my Fig Jam, Caramelized Onion, and Prosciutto Pizza.
I like to purchase ready-made dough at my local grocery store and then pile on the toppings.
Sometimes pizza can be as simple as a traditional Margherita style pizza, with fresh tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella, but other days I like to change things a bit, like with this BBQ Pork Pizza.
Using leftovers as pizza toppings is a great way to get dinner on the table fast. I cooked some Smithfield Pork Spareribs for dinner on Sunday, and then chopped up the leftovers to use later in the week.
How to make BBQ pork pizza
- Since I don’t have a pizza stone and peel, I spread the ready-made dough as thin as I can, brush a little olive oil on a baking sheet and a little on top of the dough, and then bake it in the oven on 500 for 2-3 minutes, just until the edges are slightly browning.
- While the oven is heating, chop one jalapeno and slice the kernels off two ears of corn. Slice about a quarter or half of a red onion and grab a handful of cilantro and rough chop, along with a couple of green onions.
- Remove the pizza dough from the oven after a couple of minutes, and brush with barbecue sauce, then sprinkle cheese on top of the sauce.
- Add chopped pork, corn kernels, jalapeno, and red onion, and bake for 7-9 minutes then sprinkle half a cup of cheese on top.
- Bake another couple of minutes or until crust is nicely browned underneath and cheese is melted and slightly browning.
- Remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle the chopped cilantro and green onions on top.
