Pulled Pork Pizza

Pulled Pork Pizza

Ingredients

  • 2 pkg Pillsbury thin crust pizza dough
  • 4 bone in pork chops, about 1 1/2-2 lbs
  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rays Original)
  • 1 lb sharp cheddar, grated
  • 1 bag of broccoli slaw
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup ranch dressing (just enough to coat)

Directions:

  • Slow cooker set to low, add in the pork chops and BBQ sauce. It may not look like enough sauce but they just need to be coated, you will end up with more liquid in the end. Cook for 5 – 5 1/2 hours. Using tongs, break up the pork into nice chunks and remove the bones.
  • Oven at 500 degrees. I have a pizza stone so used that here and built the pizza on a well floured pizza peel. If you don’t have one use a floured baking sheet.
  • Unroll the pizza dough and top with some of the pulled pork. Then top with the cheddar.
  • Bake for about 8 minutes or until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbling hot. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for a minute, if you try cutting it right away the cheese will slide right off.
  • In a small bowl add about 3/4 of the bag of broccoli slaw and toss it with the ranch dressing.
  • Sprinkle the slaw over top the pizza. I served it with a simple arugula salad, prepared by my genius brother… hey it was his idea might as well put him to work!

Holiday Happy Bread

Holiday Happy Bread

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons dry instant yeast
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or honey
  • 100ml warm milk
  • 500g all-purpose flour, plus extra for kneading and flouring
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 150 ml warm milk (extra)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • 100 g butter, melted and cooled
  • Glaze:
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Directions:

  • Mix together yeast, sugar, and 50ml warm milk. Set aside to rise (10 min.)
  • Meanwhile, sift the flour and salt together. Make a well in the middle and add beaten eggs into it, 50 ml warm milk, olive oil, vinegar and yeast mixture. Knead the dough with your hands or in your mixer until it separates from the sides of the bowl. Remove dough, place on lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 min. Place in a greased bowl, cover with a towel and leave to rise for an hour.
  • When ready, divide the dough into 8 equal parts.
  • Roll each piece of dough out into a roughly rectangular shape (3-5 mm thick.) Brush all the pieces with cooled, melted butter.
  • Place one piece of rectangular dough over another one and start to roll into a cylinder. Do the same with the rest of the dough; you will end up with 4 cylindrical rolls altogether.
  • Cut each roll into three pieces in this way – slice at both ends of the roll about 1.5 inch long each, and put these two pieces aside. Then cut the middle part of the roll into 4 triangles.
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Grease or line a large baking tray. In the middle of the tray, arrange the cut ends of the rolls around each other to form a circle, placing the cut sides down. Arrange the cut triangles to completely surround the middle circle. Cover with towel and leave the dough to rise in a warm place for about 30-40 minutes.
  • Beat the yolk with the milk with a fork to form a glaze and brush top of the bread with the glaze.
  • Bake bread for 20-30 minutes, reducing the temperature to 160C after 10 minutes in the oven.
  • Brush bread with melted butter, cover with a towel and leave to cool for 10-15 min.
  • Serve and Enjoy!
