We loooooove making homemade pizza. We’ve made plenty of different pizzas over the past few years. There’s been skillet pizzas, stuffed crusts and even fancied up pizzas with pancetta and rocket.

Now I’d like to introduce you to my newest addition. Not only is it an amazing pizza in its own right but it is so good for using up leftover pulled pork AND features my new favourite ever ingredient in the world kale.

Have you noticed I’ve been getting really into kale? I bet that wasn’t a sentence you were expecting to see from me but oh man is kale yummy!

I love love love it roasted. The way the edges get all crispy and crunchy and you can add so much flavour to each piece. The best thing about this pizza is that the edges poking out of the cheese still get that crispyness from baking in the oven while the rest of it gets all melty in the mozzarella.

Other than kale I suppose the actual star of the show is the leftover pulled pork. I used some that I pulled out the freezer. The good thing about using leftover meat on a pizza is that you don’t need very much to use for the topping.

I had a small tupperware left and it was enough for two pizzas!

Ingredients you need to top this leftover pulled pork pizza with kale:

  • Pizza Dough
  • Pulled Pork

The other yummy thing about this pizza is that it’s got a white pizza sauce. Normally we make this amazing tomato pizza sauce but when I was coming up with this recipe I became obsessed with the idea of a white sauce.

This sauce is creamy and cheesy and makes the most indulgent pizza.

Ingredients you need to make this white pizza sauce:

  • Butter
  • Flour
  • Milk
  • Garlic Paste
  • Chilli Flakes
  • Parmesan

The pizza dough recipe we always use can be found here. It’s pretty simple and makes enough dough for two pizzas. If you only want the one pizza than the dough freezes well and you will love your past self when you can make homemade pizza on a weeknight.

If you’ve got a dough recipe that’s your go to then feel free to use that..and share in the comments obvs!

Tips for making this leftover pulled pork pizza with kale:

  • The amount of sauce is good for 2 pizzas but I found that the moisture meant that this became more of a knife and fork deal. I was cool with that but if you want more of a classic, eat with your hands by the slice situation then you might want to use slightly less of the sauce.
  • The kale works best when it’s chopped up so you can get a really even spread across the pizzas. I got mine ready chopped.

    Honestly, white sauce is my favorite on a pizza and this looks like a dynamite combination! We have pulled pork at least a few times a month, so there’s always leftovers. Definitely want to make thisone!

    Now that is the pizza I want to give it a try with chicken or lamb maybe (I dont eat pork). I’m so bored of the regular red pizza sauce. White sauce pizza sounds absolutely fantastic!
