Whenever I make pulled pork, I always make wayyyyy more than is reasonable for 2 people. I love using leftover pulled pork 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 . Here is my favorite Instant Pot BBQ Pulled Pork recipe. It’s perfect for making in this 8 quart  Instant Pot

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 🙂

This recipe works best with really thin asparagus – thin enough to cook in 12-15 minutes at 425F – so 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!

  • In a small bowl, spray the asparagus with olive oil and mix well. Top the pizza with asparagus and bake at 425F for 12-15 minutes. Top with chopped scallions and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Notes
