Hawaiian Pork Pizza

I made this pizza a couple of weeks ago and it was DELICIOUS!! I seriously LOVED it!! It is fairly easy but you do have to plan ahead to make it. I made it for my family and it was a hit with everyone. I didn't really do step by step photos for this one but it is fairly easy to figure out. The step by step for the dough can be found in my BBQ chicken pizza recipe. It would be best to make the pork the day before you plan on making the pizza cuz it takes quite awhile. Or you could just let it cook overnight. Once the pork and dough is made you just have to add the ingredients and cook it.

This is what it should look like when you stick it in the oven.

This is what it looks like when it comes out and you add the cilantro. YUM! I seriously can't wait to make this pizza again!! Enjoy!


Hawaiian Pork:

6 lb Pork Butt Roast
1 & 1/2 Tbsp Sea Salt/ Kosher Salt
1 Tbsp of Mesquite Liquid Smoke Flavoring

Use a skewer to pierce the pork all over. Rub the meat all over with salt and then put the liquid smoke over the meat in the crock-pot. Cover the crock-pot and cook on low for 16-20 hours.
**Side note: This makes A LOT of pork. Feel free to get a smaller Pork Butt Roast and adjust the recipe accordingly or you can just eat the leftovers!


3 cups of warm water
1 Tbsp white sugar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp salt
1 packet of active dry yeast
7 cups white flour

Put 3 cups warm water in a bowl. Add the sugars and salt and stir until they are dissolved. Sprinkle packet of yeast over water mixture and let it sit for 2-3 minutes before adding the 7 cups of white flour, one at a time. The last cups you will probably have to mix with your hands. Knead it for a minute or 2 and then put it in a greased bowl. Cover it and allow to raise for 30-60 minutes. Once it is done spread it out. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes and then spread it out further. *This makes enough dough for 2 pizzas but sometimes I want my crust thinner and so I don't even use all of it.

Hawaiian Pork Pizza

*These are the ingredients if you are making 2 pizzas

1 cup BBQ Sauce
4 cups Monterey-Jack Cheese
1 cup Hawaiian Pork
1/2 cup chopped Red Pepper
1/2 cup chopped Green Onions
1 cup Pineapple Tidbits
4 Tbsp. Cilantro

Top Pizza dough with BBQ sauce, cheese, and the rest of the toppings- minus the cilantro. Cook for 20-25 minutes on 400 degrees. Top with cilantro and serve.
*To save time you could also use already made pizza dough from the grocery store.
