We had our pizza night on New Years Eve. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I made 4 pizzas; cheese, veggie, sausage and the Indiana pizza called “The Purple Pig”. This was a pulled pork sandwich on a pizza crust. I started by topping the crust with garlic and olive oil, 5 cheeses, pulled pork that I mixed with barbecue sauce and purple cabbage slaw.
Kent baked the pulled pork that morning. The night before I made a rub he put on the pork shoulder (you can use pork butt too). We put it in the fridge overnight. Sometimes I use rub and sometimes I don’t. (I will put the rub recipe under my “Recipes”) Kent really likes pulled pork sandwiches so we go through this routine a few times a year. I also put the pork with very simple seasoning of salt and pepper in the crock pot when I leave for work and it is ready when I get home.
The Purple Cabbage Slaw was simple. I sliced a red cabbage into thin slices, shredded 2 carrots (about 1 cup). I mixed the cabbage and carrots with 2-3 Tablespoons Marzetti’s Slaw Dressing. Not too much, a little goes a long way. (Sometimes I am lazy and don’t use the carrots.)
Kent and Martin loved it. I thought it could have used more meat and barbecue sauce. Kent and Martin disagreed. They both want me to make this one again. Pam and Tom (friends over for New Year’s) thought it was good but would prefer a sandwich. This pizza is a hit in our house. Since I first made it we have made it several more times. It is very popular with everyone!!
