Pulled Pork (or Beef) Pizza

1 pizza crust (see recipe below)
2 handfuls of pulled pork or beef (see recipe below)
2 onions (red & yellow), thinly sliced
2 large handfuls of baby spinach, chopped
mozzarella and cheddar cheese, grated

Sauté onions until soft, then add spinach and continue cooking for a few more minutes. Prepare pizza crust and place on a baking sheet. Spread crust with a little bit of sauce from the pulled pork/beef. Cover with shredded meat (you don't need to put a lot). Top with onions and spinach, and cover with cheese. Bake at 425 F for 15 minutes.
This pizza was fantastic!  Even the kids gobbled it all up!

I took the leftover beef and used my cookie scoop to make individual portions that can be used for quick meals or appetizers (ie: nachos or poutine!) Freeze them on a cookie sheet and then transfer to a freezer bag.

1 c. flour
2 1/4 tsp. instant yeast for pizza
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. very warm water
3/4 c. flour (or more if necessary)

Combine flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Add water and mix together. Add more flour until it forms a soft ball. Knead on floured surface until smooth, then roll out into large rectangle and place on a baking sheet.

PULLED PORK OR BEEF (you can also try this recipe that uses Root Beer!)
1 package Epicure's "What's For Dinner" Pulled Pork seasoning
1 c. ketchup
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
5 lbs. of pork or beef roast

Combine sauce ingredients and pour over meat in the crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hours, then tear apart with two forks. Pour the liquid from the crockpot into a saucepan and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let it simmer until the sauce thickens up a bit and pour it over the shredded meat.
Pin It!
