Can You Make Pulled Pork from Leftover Roast Pork?

I pretty much only make pulled pork with leftover roast pork!

It’s so easy. The pork is already cooked, and it kinda just comes away.

I leave whatever pork I’ve got left to cool, and then basically peel it with my fingers, into thin strips.

You can also use forks to pull your pork

BBQ Pulled Pork Flatbreads need BBQ sauce! Ideally, shred your pork the night before, once it’s cooled from your Sunday lunch, and marinade it in BBQ sauce overnight, so that your pork is soft, juicy, and filled with flavour on your BBQ pulled pork flatbread pizza.

I love to make my own BBQ sauce, it’s really simple, and you can adjust it to taste easily.

Then, top generously with cheese. I use pre-grated mozzarella, which is easier to work with than balls.

An Easy flatbread pizza is typically healthier than a big, deep-pan pizza. Just because it’s smaller, and you know what’s in it.

If you want to make your Pulled Pork Flatbreads even healthier, serve half a portion with a salad or roll your flatbreads out thinner and make 8, use low-fat Mozzarella, and spread the pulled pork on more sparingly.

Instructions

To Make the Flatbreads

  1. Mix the flour, baking powder, and yoghurt until it forms a rough dough

  3. Divide into 4 and roll into rough ovals, adding more flour to your surface if needed
  4. Heat a large frying pan on the hob, and add a few sprays of cooking spray
  5. Fry each bread for 4-5 minutes on each side until lightly browned

  9. Sprinkle on grated mozzarella
  10. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the pork is piping hot and the cheese is starting to bubble and brown

Notes

  • You can use store-bought BBQ sauce, but homemade is fantastic. You can find my easy BBQ sauce recipe here.
  • I leave my leftover roast pork to go cool, and then shred it by simply peeling the meat with my fingers. You can also use two forks to pull it apart.
  • You can make your flatbreads ahead of time, wrap them in cling film or foil, and leave until you need them, they will stay soft for a day or two.
  • 500g of leftover pork makes 4ish flatbreads, but use what you’ve got, you can either make fewer or spread the meat more thinly.
  • I buy a bag of grated mozzarella, it’s much easier to use than balls.
