Whenever I make pulled pork, I always make¬†wayyyyy more than is reasonable for 2 people. I love using leftover pulled pork creatively in other recipes later in the week. It doesn’t take any effort to make extra pulled pork, since it can be made in the slow cooker or instant pot (affiliate links). Side note: I got an instant pot and I LOVE IT! I got this 8 quart one. But more on that in another post ūüėČ

Anyway, back to my love of easy dinners with leftover pulled pork: We made BBQ pulled pork sandwiches last weekend, and I used the leftovers to make this amazing BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza with Asparagus. To Aldo’s dismay, I always seem¬†to throw in a vegetable or two when he least expects it, but the asparagus worked really well with this pizza! And I love a good¬†contrast of colors in my dishes ūüôā

This recipe works best with really thin asparagus Рthin enough to cook in 12-15 minutes at 425F Рso the raw asparagus can be put on the pizza and all baked together. If your asparagus is a bit thicker, just microwave it for 3-5 minutes to soften it, and then throw it on the pizza and bake to get that delicious roasted flavor.

If you are looking for creative ways to use leftover BBQ pulled pork, I would highly recommend throwing it on a pizza. I guarantee you will love this recipe!
