This is the fourth-last apple recipe I have for you.
The inspiration for this recipe arrived with the realization that, as I’ve discussed previously, apples and pigs belong together. Goats help too. And thus: a pulled pork pizza with an apple base, topped with goat cheese.
It’s not much of a recipe, really. First, you have to make my world-famous most-delicious crock pot pulled pork recipe.
Preheat your oven to 450F. Then peel and chop a bunch (4-5) of apples. Chop up an onion while you’re at it. Saute half the onion in some olive oil, add the apples, and almost cover with white wine (or broth or water, if you’re not into wine). Continue to saute over medium heat until the liquid is cooked off and the apples are mushy.
Spread the apple mixture on your choice of pizza crust, prepared in a greased baking sheet. Top with pulled pork, the remainder of the chopped onion, and some shredded goat cheddar, mozza, or whatever other cheese you might have handy. Cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the crust begins to brown.

This might be just the thing to finally convince 2.0 that goat cheese is AWESOME.
It is pretty effin good, but also does not have to be made with goat cheese. My daughter has a cows milk dairy allergy and so really only the dairy we eat in our house comes from a goat (or me, but that is a story for another day). Some brands taste a little goaty, but many are quite good.
i agree that pork + apples goes really well. it’s not something that we eat much of, BUT, we do like pizza and a version of this just might make it on our next creation.
I would love to know what kind of spin you put on this pizza, Lan! What are your favourite pizza flavour combos typically?
back when i was able to eat cheese, i loooooved the supreme pizza . when i was a kid my grandpa & i used to split a mama celeste supreme pizza (so horrible for you, but frozen pizza was the height of luxury for us back then) and then when i got older and able to eat more by myself they used to buy costco/sam’s club for-one pizzas and that was my afternoon snack after school.
nowadays, it’s whatever is in the fridge. we call it the Pile, we usually have a base homemade tomato paste and then we put a thin layer of whatever was in our csa stash: onions, kale (always kale), maybe sliced tomato, fennel, kalamata olives… then at the end, we’ll sprinkle on some parm cheese, which i am able to consume. it’s one of my more fave meals we put together.
That sounds really good! I haven’t put kale on a pizza yet, but it sounds like I’m going to have to. I bet it would be delightfully crispy at the edges.
We also lived sans pizza and/or when we ordered in ordered it without cheese (which is not as dismal as I had once imagined, actually) because my daughter has an intolerance to cow’s milk protein. Now we’re 100% goat product folks and though I sometimes miss the gooeyness of great mozzarella, I have to say that creamy/tangy/salty goat cheese is an all-right substitute.
