35 Minute Pulled Pork Pizza

We love the 35 minute pizza recipe. So much so that it is a regular at our house. I love it because it takes 35 minutes to make this pizza including making the dough from scratch. With this recipe, dinner will be ready faster than ordering delivery.

I had made a big batch of pulled pork the day before. One of my favorite things to do with leftover pulled pork is make pizza, which is a crowd pleaser! As my pizza dough was rising, I made caramelized onions in 15 minutes (recipe here).

To save even more time, you can use shredded cheese and leftovers (pulled pork, shredded chicken, ground beef, etc).

Bon appetit!

Makes: 2 - 10 inch pizza (TIP: Make a double batch to freeze for homemade frozen pizza)

2-1/4 tsp active dry yeast (1 package)
1 tsp white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F)
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt

2 tbsp olive oil (to grease the cast iron skillet)

1 cup pulled pork
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup caramelized onions
Jalapeno peppers (optional - we left it out since we have a little one)

1. Place a cast iron skillet in the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. If using a pizza pan, see details below.

2. In a stand mixer, dissolve yeast and sugar in water. Allow yeast to proof for 10 minutes until creamy.

3. Using a paddle attachment, whisk in oil and salt.

4. Switch to a dough hook and stir in the flour until smooth. Allow dough to rest for about 5 minutes.

5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat into a round disk. Using your rolling pin, roll the dough out into a round or stretch the dough out by hand to a size slightly larger than your skillet.

6. Using an oven mitt, take the cast iron skillet out of the oven. Add two tablespoons of oil to coat the bottom of the cast iron skillet.

7. Transfer the pizza crust to the cast iron skillet. Sprinkle the pulled pork evenly across the pizza crust. Top with caramelized onions and mozzarella cheese. Bake the pizza for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.

8. Allow pizza to cool for a few minutes before eating.

Pizza Pan Method
  • Grease pizza pan with oil or dust with cornmeal. Do not put the pizza pan into the oven. Transfer the pizza crust to the pizza pan, add desired toppings and bake as per directions (step 7) above.
