Slow-Cooked Pork Tex-Mex Pizza

Servings: 2-4 servings

Get a new perspective on BBQ pizza with a kick as you enjoy slow-cooked pork, jalapeños and poblano peppers. You might find it so tasty you'll want this pizza pie all to yourself, but it's not nice not to share. Just saying.

Ingredients

  • 1 store-bought frozen pizza dough
  • 1 8-ounce package mozzarella cheese sliced thick
  • 2 cups slow-cooked pork
  • 1 cup homemade or your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 large poblano pepper cut into strips
  • 1/2 medium red onion cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeño slices
  • cornmeal
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Follow the directions for the pizza dough, according to the package.
  2. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Line baking sheet with foil paper or parchment paper, sprinkle with cornmeal, about 1/4 cup, and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. When ready, lay the dough onto baking sheet and using your hands start forming dough, as round as you can get it. With your fingertips, punch into dough surface. Sprinkle a little more cornmeal on and drizzle with olive oil. Start by laying the mozzarella cheese, slow-cooked pork, BBQ sauce, poblano strips, red onion, then the jalapeño slices.
  4. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the dough becomes golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool slightly before slicing. I found it easier to slice, by transferring the pizza to a cutting board and using a pizza slicer.Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the dough becomes golden brown.
