For all the pizza and pulled pork lovers alike - this Pulled Pork Pizza might just make your day. It certainly did mine.
I have to say that before I moved to this continent I don't think I had tried or maybe even heard of pulled pork before. It caught me by surprise the first time I tried it.... Tender Pork meat shredded and coated in BBQ sauce, yummy!
No doubt it has been around for a long time over here, but it must have passed me by somehow when I lived in the UK and Ireland. Although it seems to be spreading over the Atlantic now too and that's because it's so delicious and super easy to make.
I have three versions Slow Cooker Pulled Pork and when you are rushed for time, this Stove Top Pulled Pork which is super quick to make and equally as good and then for a little something different Pulled Pork with an Amazing Blueberry BBQ Sauce. All are low synned, but you could also make it syn free if you use this Syn Free Barbecue Sauce or swap out the maple sugar for sweetener. Want my personal opinion? Just use the maple syrup and syn it, it's totally worth it and very little syns when divided out into portions.
In any case, once I discovered that I love this tasty delight I began to think of other recipes that I could use it in. Whenever I cook some up, it is usually enough to leave some leftovers. One favourite recipe for leftovers is this amazing Pulled Pork Pasta Bake, but then I remembered a Pulled Pork Pizza I once had and that was it, I just had to come up with my own low synned version.
This totally curbed the cravings for the day and all for very little syns. Served up with a salad it was PERFECT!! My whole family love smokehouse style recipes, so coming up with all these low synned versions keeps us all happy.
For the base of the Pulled Pork Pizza, I know there are some bread mixes that can be used as a Healthy Extra B and in turn can then be used to make a pizza base, but sometimes when you fancy pizza, you just don’t want to be messing around making the crust, so I just use a healthy extra b serving of pita bread or tortilla wrap, as I am a thin crust kind of gal anyway and it's a perfect serving.
