Made with leftover pulled pork, this 20-minute BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza recipe is sweet, savory, and ready in practically no time at all! Repurpose leftover pulled pork into an irresistible pizza that your whole family will love! 


  • 1 1/4 cups leftover pulled pork
  • 1 - 12" thin-crust, cooked pizza shell
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce 
  • 1/8 cup red onion - thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup arugula 
  • Optional: Extra BBQ sauce for serving


  1. Preheat your oven to 450°F. 
  2. Warm the leftover pulled pork in a medium-sized skillet over low heat for 2-3 minutes to cook off some of the fat that has solidified onto the pork. Remove from the heat and set it aside. 
  3. Layer the pulled pork pizza toppings onto the pizza shell. Start with a layer of BBQ sauce. Spread the BBQ sauce almost to the edges, leaving a small amount of room for the crust. 
  4. Top the BBQ sauce with the reheated pulled pork, followed by the sliced red onions, and shredded cheddar cheese.
  5. Transfer the pizza to the oven. Place it directly on the oven racks. Cook the pizza for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is hot and bubbly. 
  6. Carefully slide the pizza out of the oven, onto a cutting board or baking sheet, then top it with fresh arugula. 
  7. Let the pizza rest for 2-3 minutes before cutting it into six equally-sized slices. Enjoy! 


  • Keep a close eye on the pizza while it bakes. Cooking times may vary depending on what pizza crust you're using. Look for golden brown crust and bubbling cheese.
  • BBQ sauce can be made from scratch or store-bought. I love a few store-bought brands and prefer to save time and buy the sauce! I recommend Rib Rack BBQ Sauce and Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce.
