Quick Pulled Pork Pizza

This Quick Pulled Pork Pizza can be made in a matter of minutes making it a perfect weeknight meal. The delicious creamy white sauce makes a lovely change from your typical pizza sauce. 

A quick and easy weeknight meal 

This Quick Pulled Pork Pizza is so easy to make and incredibly versatile. The biggest time saver is that the pizza base is actually a flat bread. By all means, make your own pizza dough and the white sauce and pulled pork toppings will be absolutely delicious. But not everyone has time, or wants to make pizza dough!

I like flat breads because they are roughly the same thickness as a think crust pizza. If you have tortilla wraps to hand, you can use these instead. The tortilla wrap will get quite crispy so you may need to cook it for a couple of minutes less. 

Have you ever had white sauce on a pizza?

If you haven’t had white sauce on a pizza before you haven’t lived! This Quick Pulled Pork Pizza is a variation of a pizza I had in an Italian restaurant. Personally, I think the white sauce goes much better with the pork than a traditional tomato based pizza sauce would. 

The white sauce is essentially a béchamel but with a twist. I have used it a number of times in recipes such as my Chicken & Ham Hock Filo Pie.  This version of my white sauce has garlic and Parmesan. This means you don’t have to add more cheese because it is already in the sauce. Parmesan is also healthier than other cheeses such as cheddar so is a great option to use. Obviously if you want to add more cheese as well as the sauce, you can do. 

Customise your toppings

As these quick pizzas are one per person, you can really customise them to what you like. The pulled pork is really the star of the show and I like to use my Slow Cooker Cuban Pork. If you’ve made my Cuban Pork, this Quick Pulled Pork Pizza is a great way to use up any leftovers. A small amount of pork will go a long way on these pizzas. It is also so different from the original dish that people won’t be bored thinking they’re eating the same meal again. 

If you don’t have any of my Slow Cooker Cuban Pork to hand, you can use any pulled pork you like. I know you can buy pulled pork in the cold meat section of a lot of supermarkets which is a time saver. I would recommend not using pulled pork that is in any form of sauce like BBQ. This is just because I don’t think it will go very well with the white sauce base. 

I chose to keep my toppings quite minimal like they would be on a Neapolitan pizza. Obviously I added my beloved tenderstem broccoli because few things can make me happier than pork and tenderstem broccoli in the same meal. Add whichever toppings you would like, just try to resist the urge to overload it too much!

    Such a great meal idea, I really like using flat bread as pizza base too – that way it’s more about the toppings, and your toppings sound delicious! Thank you for bringing your recipe to #CookBlogShare.
