Root Beer Pork Pizza

Happy New Year Everyone!!! Thanks for following and here is to another great year of yummy food!

Earlier this week I pulled out my new smoker, spent all morning smoking a pork roast, then shredded it up, put it in the slow cooker and made a modified Root Beer Pork  but then after all that work, I started feeling lousy and ended up coming down with a bug that had been passing around our house(It had been a few days so I thought I lucked out but NOOOPE). So it got reassigned for another day and stuck in the freezer. I decided to pull it out and instead of just making it into sandwiches I decided to make it into a pizza!

Cornmeal Crust:
3/4 cup warm water
2 1/2 tsp yeast
1 1/2 tsp sugar
2 TB olive oil
1 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 cups flour (GF mix is fine!)
1/2 tsp salt

2-3 cups Root Beer Pork (see link above)
BBQ Sauce, I use Honey Bourbon
8 oz shredded provolone
Fried Pickles and/or JalapeƱos
Coleslaw Mix (I prefer it dry, you can add a dressing if you like)

Crust: (Sorry no process pics!)
 Mix water with yeast and sugar, allow to proof for 5-10 minutes until foamy.
Add in olive oil.
Combine flour, cornmeal and salt. Add to yeast mixture and mix well until it forms into a ball. Add 1-2 more tb flour until it is not too sticky,
Pour into a greased bowl and set in a warm draft free location, Allow to rise until doubled.

Preheat oven to 425
On a greased pizza sheet pat/roll the crust to the edges, taking care not to tear it.

Spread a thin layer of BBQ sauce.

Add pork, being careful not to overload.

Top with shredded cheese

Add fried pickles/jalapeƱos.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Allow to set for 5 minutes, slice then top with coleslaw and extra pickles/jalapenos if you like and serve!
