For the Pulled Pork
1 tablespoon olive oil1 onion, thinly slicedcanola oil, as needed, for searing1 pack Farmer John Pork Tenderloin (about 2.4 lbs)1 can or bottle of beer (I used IPA)1 Cup of Apple Cider1/2 cup BBQ Sauce (store bought or homemade)1 tablespoon cumin1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper1 tablespoon brown sugar1 tablespoon sweet paprika 1 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon black pepper or red pepper
For the Pizza Toppings
1/3 cup bbq sauce1 cup shredded cheddar cheese1/2 cup shedded mozzarella 1/2 cup diced pineapple 1 tablespoon diced red onion1/2 cup peppadew pepper1 cup pulled pork 1/2 package of All Natural Farmer John Bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbledcaramelized onions (reserved from pulled pork)handful fresh cilantro leaves1 tablespoons chopped chivesDirections
Prepare pizza dough according to recipe (or your recipe of choice) and let rise. Prepare the pork. Heat olive oil in a dutch oven and add onion. Cook over low heat until onion begins to brown and caramelize slightly. Remove onions from pan and set aside. Rub the spice mixture over pork (ideally the pork will have been resting on the counter for about 30 minutes before you add it to the pan) and then turn the heat up in the same pan the onions were in and add a little canola oil and sear over medium high to high heat turning often to brown all sides. Once its seared on all sides, add beer, apple cider and BBQ sauce. Put onions back into the pan along, then cover and braise in the oven at 275˚F for about 2-3 hours, turning pork halfway through. When pork is done, remove meat and shed. Reserve 1 cup for the pizza, and save the rest for tacos, enchiladas, etc. Strain the braising liquid, reserve the onions for the pizza, and store the liquid with the leftover pork to keep it moist.
Assembling the pizza
Preheat the oven to 500˚F and stretch dough into a large circle. Place on a baking sheet, baking steel, or pizza stone. Add the BBQ sauce and spread evenly over crust. Add remaing toppings, then place in the oven to bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until crust is crisp and golden brown and cheese is bubbly.
