Pulled Pork Pizza

Our Smoked Pulled Pork Pizza is a delicious fusion of smoked barbecue flavors and everyone’s favorite food – pizza, creating a meal that appeals to everyone. When we do a big pork butt, we always have leftovers. So finding different ways to repurpose it is an easy way to make a quick dinner during the week. We take leftover smoked pulled pork, combined with the tang of barbecue sauce and the creaminess of melted cheese, baked in the Traeger or the oven, for a simple dinner that the kids will be begging you to make again.

Smoked Pulled Pork Pizza

Leftover Pulled Pork is basically its own food group in our house. When we do a pork butt, we usually do two, just for the leftovers. There are SO many things you can make with it! From Pulled Pork Twice Baked Potatoes to Pulled Pork Enchiladas and Pulled Pork Tacos, there’s something for every day of the week that will have you using up those leftovers in new and interesting ways.

Plus, leftover pulled pork freezes really well, so you can vacuum seal meal-sized portions for those weeknights when you’re thinking about turning to takeout but would rather do something easy and budget-friendly at home.
