After smoking some ribs for Christmas Eve, and portlandpiper told me he was planning on pizza for Christmas Day, I decided to try making some pizza with the leftover ribs. Sometimes ideas in the kitchen work out way better than planned, and this is one of those times. The juicy shreds of pork, with the spicy sweet dry rub on the ends, made for an incredibly tasty pizza. I went light on the sauce, and chose smoked mozzarella, cheddar and provolone as my cheeses of choice. Pizza restaurants are really missing out by not including this on their menu.

I'm not including any specific quantities in this recipe, because people all seem to have their own preferences when making pizzas. I've included links to my crust and sauce recipes if you want to try my favorites.

Servings:
1 personal pizza per person
Preparation Time:
30 minutes, if you have crust, sauce and ribs ready

Ingredients

  • Pizza crust (Mine is made with spelt, made to personal sized pizzas)
  • Pizza sauce
  • Meat from one baby back rib per personal sized pizza
  • Shredded cheese of your choice. I went with smoked mozzerela, provolone and cheddar to go with the smoky flavor of the meat
Cooking Instructions
Build your pizza the way you would for most other pizzas. I went light on the sauce and the cheese because I wanted the flavor of the meat and the dry rub to be dominant, and that was a good choice. I used a prebaked crust, and cooked the pizza on a 400 degree pizza stone for 10 minutes. It came out perfect.
