Hawaiian BBQ Pulled Pork Calzones
My love for Hawaiian pizza runs pretty deep. Almost as deep as my love for truly amazing pulled pork and BBQ. As I sat down to come up with my Super Bowl menu, I couldn't stop thinking about Hawaiian pizza. I didn't want to do the same ol' pizza I've been doing for years though. Nope, it was time to change things up.
So why not stuff pork, pineapple, cheese and barbecue sauce into warm, gooey pockets of deliciousness? These Hawaiian BBQ Pulled Pork Calzones are the perfect game day meal for your upcoming Super Bowl celebration (or any excuse for a celebration, let's face it, they are THAT good). They take little to no effort and are ready in less than 20 minutes. Plus you get that oh-so good Pig of the Month pulled pork...
When you're cheering your team for that touchdown, just try not to get BBQ sauce everywhere, ok?
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or aluminum foil (be sure to grease it!). In a medium bowl, stir together pulled pork, BBQ sauce and diced pineapple until combined. Set aside.
Roll out pizza dough into a large rectangle, approximately 1/4" thick. Cut the rectangle in half crosswise and then again lengthwise to form 4 small rectangles. In the center of each, add approximately 1/4 cup of the pork mixture.
Top with 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese. Fold the dough over to form the calzone, pinching the edges together before rolling them up and in. Place all four calzones on the lined baking sheet.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until just starting to brown on top. Remove from oven and wait 5 minutes before cutting and serving with extra sauce.
