Pulled Pork Pizza

Have you already had Pulled Pork sandwiches for the last 2 days, and you're wondering what to do with all of those Pulled Pork leftovers?  I had the same dilemma the other night!  We have a traveling BBQ guy that comes to town about once a month or so, and we always get Pulled Pork in bulk, usually a pound.  We love it, it's so good!!  This time we ordered some other stuff to go along with it, so we had a bunch of meat leftover.  I did some searching on Pinterest and found a pin for Pulled Pork Pizza, I immediately was intrigued!  I decided to make this recipe over at Apple A Day, pretty much the same but I did make some changes.  It was the yummiest, most different (in a good way), pizza I've ever had!!  The BBQ sauce gave it an awesome "tangyness", and the veggies gave it extra flavor.  We will be making more of this in the future!

Ingredients: - yield 1 pizza
1/2 lb pulled pork (approximately 1.5 to 2 cups)
Pizza Crust (I used store bought pre-made, but you can make your own if you wish)
3/4 cup favorite BBQ sauce (we used Curley's Hickory BBQ Sauce)
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
2 large garlic cloves, minced
Mozzarella cheese
Cheddar cheese
olive oil (for crust and to saute veggies)
Crushed Red Pepper & Black Pepper (to taste)

1. Preheat oven as directed on pizza crust package (we did 425), and if you're using a pizza stone this is when you'll want to put it in the oven.
2. Brush some olive oil on the crust and set aside.  Once oven is preheated, you can put your pre-made crust in for 3-5 min just to help it get a little crunchy (last part is optional).
3. Heat up some olive oil in skillet.  On medium heat, add in the minced garlic first for about 30 seconds to 1 minute (be careful not to burn it, just want to lightly brown it), then add in the other veggies.  Saute for maybe 7-10 minutes, depending on how "crunchy" you like your veggies.
4. Cut up pulled pork if its in big chunks.  In a small bowl take 3 tbsp of BBQ sauce and coat the pulled pork. 
5. Use the remaining BBQ sauce for the crust, evenly spreading it on like pizza sauce.
6. Top it off with your pulled pork, sauteed veggies, cheeses, and seasoning.
7. Put on preheated pizza stone, bake for 8 minutes until cheese is melted and edges are brown.

nom nom nom!

Ok, no more guessing what we're going to make with leftover Pulled Pork!! :) Just talking about this is making me super hungry!! 

What is your favorite thing to do with leftover Pulled Pork, besides sandwiches?  Oh and if you have a great Pulled Pork recipe, please do share (been looking for one to try someday)!
