Burnhard Pizza | My version is Pulled Pork Pizza

This pizza has some serious kick, just the way we like it here. It's layered with BBQ sauce, cheese, pulled pork smothered in BBQ sauce, chipotle and bell peppers.

Servings: 1 large pizza


  • Homemade or Store-bought pizza dough enough for 1 pizza
  • 2 and ½ pounds 680 g chuck beef I used pork instead, use my root beer pulled pork recipe
  • 1 tablespoon 15 ml salt
  • 4 to 6 jalapenos I used chipotle peppers in adobo sauce instead 3 to be exact
  • BBQ sauce
  • Hot sauce cookbook suggests Sriracha
  • ½ cup 60 g shredded mozzarella I used pizza mozzarella, it's our personal favourite
  • 4 to 5 mini bell peppers sliced thinly


  • Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). If you would rather grill this in summer just preheat your grill to the same temperature.
  • If using beef, place in a large pot and fill with water to cover. Add salt, and simmer until tender and meat breaks apart with a fork. Once it cools you can shred it. I used my Root Beer Pulled Pork for this, it's cooked in a slow cooker which is nice in summer to keep your house cool
  • Grill whole jalapenos in oil over medium-hot heat. You want the skin to blister, then you know it's done. Let it cool, then peel and remove seeds. Chop finely. I used canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce instead, 3, diced finely
  • Combine beef and jalapenos, then toss with BBQ sauce to cover meat. I combined my pork and chipotle peppers for this step, then added BBQ sauce
  • Spread the dough out by hand or roll it with a rolling pin. Either way is acceptable.
  • Spread BBQ sauce over the dough. Toss mozzarella over the pizza. Add the meat mixture randomly over top of the pizza.
  • At this point I added some bell peppers. Cookbook does not call for it, but we wanted to add them.
  • Place pizza in the oven until it is golden brown. At 500 it should take about 8 to 10 minutes, if you use a 450 degree F preheated oven it should take about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Top with hot sauce. Get ready to light your mouth on fire. Feel that burn.
  • Slice the pizza with a pizza wheel.
  • Serve with a big old burnhard smile!


I made some minor changes to the recipe, you can see them in bold.
Keep in mind the cook time does not include the beef or pork. If you're cooking either of those low and slow you're looking at about 4 to 6 hours.
