BBQ PULLED PORK FLATBREAD PIZZA IS AN EASY RECIPE FOR DINNER, GAME DAY OR EVEN A FUN LUNCH!
I am a huge fan of flatbread pizzas. While it doesn’t replace ordering a warm deep dish pizza or thick crust pepperoni pizza, flatbread pizzas are a favorite of ours for an easy weeknight dinner, appetizers for when friends are over for game day or even a special Saturday afternoon. There are only so many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches I can eat in a week before I want to spruce up lunch and this BBQ Pulled Pork Flatbread Pizza is the perfect way to spruce up Saturday lunch.
Stonefire flatbreads are definitely my go-to choice. They are fresh, easy to freeze so they are on hand for a last minute meal time, and quick to cook! Bake them on a crisper pan to get the flatbread just a little crunchy which is my personal preference.
Side Note: Crisper pans are one of my favorite kitchen tools to have on hand. We use them for baking chicken tenders, pizza, fries, and more. Anything that you want to have a crunchy outside can go right on the crisper pan. I thought it was a bit of a hoax at first, not thinking the little holes would make much of a difference in the cooking, but it’s not. I notice the most difference when we cook fries or tater tots.
Now, back to the flatbread pizza! Many people will see jalapeños on this flatbread recipe and assume it’s not for them. You should definitely give it a try though! I use fresh jalapeños and deseed them, which is where the majority of the heat lies in the pepper. Without the seeds, most jalapeños just provide a subtle heat and the perfect flavor to go along with BBQ sauce.
I use my recipe for 4 Ingredient Pulled Pork for the topping of this pizza. I like to make a big batch when I make it specifically for leftover recipes like this one. It’s easy without losing great taste.
- 1 cup bbq sauce of your choice
- 2 flatbreadas
- 1 c. mozzarella cheese

- Top each with cheese, pulled pork, red onion, jalapeños and a little more of the cheese.
