“We garnish with a little of the leftover sauce and sliced jalapeños. Any kind of pepper can be used instead of jalapeño, if that is too spicy. Experiment with different barbecue sauces to find the best. We like Texas-style spicy sauce.”
1 pound pizza dough, or as needed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeño pepper, diced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
8-10 ounces roasted or smoked pork, shredded
1 cup barbecue sauce, divided use
1 can tomato sauce (8 ounces), divided use
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided use
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese, divided use
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll or press pizza dough into a 16-inch circle.
2. Pour olive oil in pan and heat on medium-high. Add onion, garlic and jalapeño. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sauté until tender. Add shredded pork and heat through.
3. Add 1/2 cup barbecue sauce and about 1/4 can tomato sauce. Mix well and let simmer about 10 minutes.
4. Combine the remaining tomato and barbecue sauce in a separate bowl. Ladle about 1 cup of sauce mixture (will vary depending on size of pizza crust) onto the crust and spread evenly 1/2 inch from the edge.
5. Sprinkle half the cheese over the sauce, followed by the meat mixture and then remaining cheese. Bake 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
