Braised Pork Shoulder...the sequel...

With all that leftover pork we had to think of some way of reinventing it for another evening's meal, and I came up with what I think was a pretty creative option...we turned it into a pumpkin and pork pizza.

We have a pizza place up the street, Johnny's, that has pretty good pizza, but our favorite thing to order is their pizza dough.  They sell their dough, un-cooked of course, in a small and a large and for $4.50 for a large dough it's a pretty good deal and takes a ton of the work out of making homemade pizza. :)

So with the dough rolled out and the crust pre-stuffed with mozzarella (Andy refuses to eat a pizza that doesn't have a stuffed crust) I simply used the leftover pumpkin sauce from a few nights before as the base, then topped with leftover pork, cremini mushrooms, red onion, more mozzarella and some arugula for color and extra crunch. 

It was so good and a great way to use up leftovers without feeling like you were eating leftovers. Of course, I didn't mind the leftover pizza for lunch the next day. ;)
