Grilled Pulled Pork Pizza with BBQ Sauce
Grilled Pulled Pork Pizza is a pizza like none other. Make it easy on yourself and pick up some pizza dough from your local pizza or Italian joint and some pulled pork from your favorite BBQ place. Or, make it yourself!
- 1 cup BBQ sauce
- all-purpose flour for dusting your counter
- 1 lb pizza dough
- cornmeal for dusting pizza wheel
- 1 lb pulled pork
- ½ cup red onion thinly sliced
- ½ cup mozzarella shredded
- ½ cup Gruyere cheese
- 1 tbsp parsley fresh, for garnish, optional
Make the Pizza!
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough to about 10 to 12 inches. Gently fold it in half. Sprinkle your pizza wheel or the back of a large baking sheet with cornmeal. Place the folded dough onto the wheel or baking sheet and unfold the pizza.
Meanwhile, place your pizza stone on the grill and crank the heat to medium-high and close the lid. The internal temp should be around 400°F, but it's okay if it's hotter.
Carefully slide the dough off of the wheel or baking sheet onto the hot stone. Close the lid and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Use a pair of tongs to flip the dough over.
Working quickly, use a ladle to spread the BBQ sauce over the dough, then add the pulled pork, sliced onions, and then both types of cheese. Close the lid and let cook until cheese has melted and lightly browned on top, about 5 minutes.
Use a pair of tongs (or two large spatulas) to transfer the pizza to a large cutting board. Slice the pizza into 8 slices. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired and extra BBQ sauce on the side for dipping.

Some grills are hotter than others. Be sure to keep an eye on the dough before you flip it. 2 minutes should long enough to allow it to become stiff enough to flip. It should be lightly browned on the bottom. However, it may need to go longer, depending on your grill. If it goes too long, the dough will inflate and burn.
We definitely recommend making the BBQ sauce. It's easy and so delicious.
Wrap leftovers in foil and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days or on the counter for 1 to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on HIGH for about 30 seconds.
