BBQ Pork Plantain Pizza

This BBQ Pork Plantain Pizza makes my world go round! The base is a simple mixture of fresh plantains and a few other strategic (non-flour) ingredients. Spread with your favorite BBQ sauce, top with pulled pork, and bake until it's perfect. I have a feeling you will love this pizza!

BBQ Pork Plantain Pizza

I have to be honest with you about this pizza. I made it, packaged it up for the freezer, and stored it away in our deep freeze full of “for when the baby comes” meals. I made it exactly 2 weeks before I'd already defrosted and enjoyed all the BBQ Pork Plantain Pizza freezer meals. OOPS!

This pizza hits the freaking spot. We were pretty proud of our pizza base here, too, because it's *such* a simple blend of plantains plus a few strategic ingredients. Simply blend and then spread it out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Give it a quick bake (until it sets) and then top with your favorite toppings! I wanted a BBQ pork spin on a pizza, so first I spread a nice lather of my homemade BBQ sauce overtop. From there, I opted for pulled pork! If you're following along on our Cook Once, Eat All Week series, simply dig into that pulled pork you already have prepared! The rest of the toppings are your call. I added purple onion and jalapeños. Pop that beauty back in the oven until it's all bubbly and delicious looking. I finished my pizza off with a nice drizzle of ranch dressing and then we were off to the races!

Note: this pizza made enough for 2 servings for me, so I recommend doubling if you're cooking for more folks. For freezing/defrost tips, be sure to grab the eBook for this week! Links are below.

Ingredients

    For the Shredded Pork

    • 1, 3 pound pork shoulder
    • 1/2 tablespoons coarse sea salt

    For the Crust

    • 3 plantains (green or slightly ripe)
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
    • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt

    For the Pizza

    • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
    • 1 cup pre-cooked shredded pork

    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (about one lemon)
    • 1/2 tablespoon dried dill

    Directions

    1. Season pork shoulder with 1/2 tablespoon coarse sea salt. Place in the slow cooker. Cook for 8 hours on low, or about 4-6 hours on high, until pork easily shreds apart. See HERE for Instant Pot method.
    2. Preheat oven to 375 F.
    3. In a food processor or blender, blend the plantains, coconut oil, and salt until smooth.
    4. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat, and spread the plantain mixture into a large circle, making the thickness as even as possible.
    5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until crust is browned and no longer sticky.
    6. Remove crust from oven and top with BBQ sauce, shredded pork, sliced jalapeno, and red onion. Return to oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
    7. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients for the ranch dressing.
    8. Let cool, garnish with ranch and cilantro, then slice and serve!

      Hi Cassie, This looks awesome! Can you put the link to the insta pot version for the pork? I don’t think it is linked. Thanks!

      So I need some tips, when I roasted the plantains they came out rock hard and super dry and I had to add a bunch of water to the food processor so that it came out smooth. I cook with ripe plantains all the time but not green ones unless im making tostones. Any suggestions to roasting them to perfection?

      Hey Cassie! Just made this crust last night for dinner. It is SUCH a winner. It was just enough for two servings for me, and the plantain crust is SO filling it’s fantastic. This will be my go to easy pizza crust from here on out without a doubt. Thank you for posting this for everyone!

      This pizza is incredible! I can’t wait to try the plantain crust with different topping combinations. Do you know if you can substitute ghee, butter, or olive oil for the coconut oil in the crust? I’d love for my boyfriend to try this recipe, but he’s allergic to coconut. Thanks!
