Pulled Pork Pizza

Pulled Pork Pizza with Jalapenos and Mango Salsa

My latest, pulled pork pizza with jalapenos and mango salsa, is so good I could eat it with ever hunger pain.

Do you ever wake up in the morning absolutely craving something? Like, you-gotta-have-it-right-now kind of craving?

That was me the day after making these ribs from Once Upon A Chef. I was craving pizza. It was a SERIOUS, relentless PMS-type craving.

These ribs are so good and so different from your typical rib recipe; instead of a typical BBQ sauce they’re marinated and cooked in an Asian type sauce with hoisin, soy sauce, amongst other fantastic flavors.


So, knowing that I had some leftover ribs in the fridge, I immediately went into psycho foodie mode thinking of all the ways to make pizza with them. This is, of course, after I got the kids off to school and Mark left for work. Did I have better things to do? Well, probably.

Did that matter? Maybe, but I had to have some pizza damnit and by God I’m gonna make a pizza.

The ribs were good the day before, but I wanted to make them better. I put them back in the oven for about 3 hours on 200 degrees – then they were outstanding. I shredded the pork, then thought about giving Sally the bones but then decided I don’t want my dog choking to death so I pretty quickly nixed that idea.

When I made the ribs, I made double the amount of the marinade, and I’m so glad I did because it turned out to be the perfect pizza sauce for this.

I also made a mango salsa to top it off, which really just makes the whole thing taste magical. Kinda like a Disney movie. Oh, and I put some pickled jalapenos on top.


What? You know me, not a big shocker. Jalapeños make everything better.

Pulled Pork Pizza with Jalapenos and Mango Salsa

Yield: 4-6
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 11 minutes



To make the pizza dough, combine the flour and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Sprinkle yeast over the water and let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes or so.
Turn the mixer on low and add the olive oil, followed by the yeast/water mixture.
Mix until combined and pulling away from the bowl.
Drizzle with olive oil, turn to coat, cover and refrigerate. (It actually gets better the longer it's in the fridge).
Make the ribs (mine were leftover, I made mine the day before for dinner). Make sure to save half of the sauce in a separate container - you should only use half of it for marinating and basting. Pull the meat off with your fingers and shred using two forks. Set aside.
Make the salsa by combining all ingredients in a bowl. Refrigerate until pizza is done.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
Drizzle olive oil in a 10" cast iron skillet (a cookie sheet or flat pan would work as well)
Spread half of the dough in the pan, using your fingers to stretch it. Use a little less dough if you want a thin crust, more if you want a deep pan pizza.
Spread some of the rib sauce on the dough, followed by shredded pork, cheese and jalapeños.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and the crust is slightly brown.
Serve with mango salsa.Pulled Pork Pizza
