Not only is this a great way to use up leftover barbecue, but this pizza is simply decadent. The crust is stuffed with meat and then topped with what else? Meat. A perfect treat for meat lovers

  • 16 ounces barbecue sauce (approx 1 bottle, or you can make your own barbecue sauce)
  • 2 cups pulled pork
  • 2 cups Monterey jack cheese (shredded)
  • 1 cup ​barbecued brisket (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup sausage (smoked, chopped)
  • 1/2 medium red onion (sliced into thin rings)

  9. Add uncooked rolled dough on top. It will be bigger since the partially cooked dough will shrink a bit in the oven. Gently tuck excess dough underneath, pressing to seal edges.
