BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza

BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza with Red Onions and Extra BBQ Sauce // The Speckled Palate

When I was a kid, a chain pizza place in my hometown of Memphis made a killer pulled pork pizza. My family discovered it by accident one Friday night, and if I recall correctly, we ordered about one pizza per week… especially after Friday night sports team practices and for sleepovers.

Sadly, the chain eventually stopped carrying that magical pizza, and it was never revived, which was heartbreaking.

In the years since, I’ve tried a lot of barbecue pizzas in an attempt to find a pie that was similar to the one I remember.

The bad news is I’ve never eaten a pizza like to the one we ordered from any pizza place.

The good news is I’ve found something similar enough… and I made it on my own kitchen.

Sometimes, you need to bake pizza. Today is one of those days, and I highly recommend this scrumptious BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza for a quick meal!



  1. Preheat the oven to 475°F, and place your pizza stone in the oven as it heats.
  2. Roll out the dough, and set aside until the oven has preheated.
  3. Once the oven is hot and the pizza stone is equally heated, remove the pizza stone and transfer the pizza dough onto the stone.
  4. Measure the simple red sauce onto the dough, then add the barbecue sauce. Swirl the two around on the dough, covering the surface.
  5. Top the sauces with the cheese, then sprinkle the pulled pork on top of the cheese.
  6. Spread the sliced red onions on top of the pulled pork.
  7. Transfer the pizza stone into the oven, and bake until bubbly and the dough has crisped up (about 10-12 minutes, depending on your oven.)
  8. Remove from the oven, let sit for a few minutes, then slice and enjoy immediately!
