I am posting this today especially for a most loyal reader, Bettsi. I had shared a photo earlier and she requested the recipe. Let me know how it comess out Bettsi!
Pulled Pork Pizza with Caramelized Onions and Apples
- Leftover pork roast (I had 1/2 of a small pork tenderloin left, wasn't more than 1/2 lb of meat. If you haven't got leftovers one of those pre-wrapped pork roasts would easily create two pizzas.)
- 3/4 cup of bottled barbecue sauce
- 1 Boboli Whole Wheat Pizza Shell (I am sure you can use any other type or make your own. I believe in simple!)
- 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
- 1 cup baby spinach (optional - I sneak spinach in when ever I can because it is so good for me!)
- 1 delicious apple, skin on sliced thinly
- 1/2 cup shredded pizza cheese
- Take a leftover pork tenderloin roast and bake it again, wrapped in tinfoil for about 1 more hour at 350 degrees. Remove from oven, allow to cool to the touch and pull the pork into shreds.
- Preheat oven to 400º.
- Take 1 large yellow onion, sliced thin and sauté it in a small amount of olive oil over medium heat for about 15 minutes to caramelize the onions.
- Meanwhile, combine the pulled pork with ¾ cup of your favorite barbeque sauce in a frying pan. Heat over medium heat until heated through.
- Add about 1 cup of baby spinach (optional) and sauté until spinach is wilted and mixed in with the pork and sauce.
- Spread the pork/spinach/sauce mixture over a Boboli Whole Wheat Pizza crust.
- Spread the sautéed onions on top.
- Arrange apple slices around the edge of the pizza.
- Cover with about ½ cup of shredded pizza cheese mixture.
- Bake in oven on open shelf (no pan) at 400 for 20 minutes. I put a cookie sheet on a lower shelf to catch any possible drips.
- Remove, slice and serve.
Yield: 4 big pieces of pizza. This is good for 2 on a hungry night!
Tastes great with a side salad and an ear of corn!
Enjoy and let me know how your family liked it.
