The Crust:

  • 1 (16-ounce) store-bought pizza dough, thawed OR
  • Your favorite homemade pizza dough recipe (enough for a 12-inch pizza)


The Hollywood-Smoked Base:


The Toppings:

  • 1 ½ - 2 cups leftover pulled pork, warmed
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
  • 1 - 2 jalapenos, thinly sliced (optional)
  • Pickled red onion slices, for serving (optional)


  1. Prepare the Hollywood-smoked base: In a small bowl, whisk together Bearded Butcher Blend BBQ sauce, olive oil, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, Bearded Butcher Blend Hollywood Seasoning, and cayenne pepper (if using).
  2. Preheat the oven or grill: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) or your grill to medium-high heat. If using a grill, preheat with the lid closed for 10 minutes.
  3. Season the pulled pork: While the oven/grill preheats, toss the warmed pulled pork with 1 tablespoon of the Hollywood-smoked base for added flavor.
  4. Assemble the pizza: Stretch the pizza dough onto a lightly floured surface or baking sheet. Spread the remaining Hollywood-smoked base evenly over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge.
  5. Layer the toppings: Top the pizza with shredded mozzarella cheese, followed by the seasoned pulled pork, red onion, and cilantro. Add jalapenos if using.
  6. Bake or grill: Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly. If using a grill, place the pizza directly on the grates and cook for 5-7 minutes per side, or until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Garnish and serve: Sprinkle with extra mozzarella cheese (optional) and garnish with fresh cilantro. Serve immediately, with pickled red onion slices on the side if desired.


  • For a thicker crust, preheat your baking sheet in the oven for 10 minutes before adding the pizza.
  • Get creative with your toppings! Try adding other vegetables like roasted red peppers, corn, or pineapple.
  • If you don't have fresh jalapenos, you can use pickled jalapenos or a few dashes of Bearded Butcher Rebel Red Sauce.
  • Have leftover Hollywood-smoked base? Drizzle it over the finished pizza for an extra burst of flavor.
