Making the Dough (if making from scratch)

Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. 4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). 2. If using store-bought dough, follow package instructions for preheating. 3. If making your own dough, punch down the dough and roll it out on a lightly floured surface to a 12-inch circle. 4. Place the dough on a greased pizza pan or baking sheet.

Adding the Flavor

1. Spread a thin layer of BBQ sauce over the dough, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. 2. Top with a generous amount of pulled pork. 3. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese evenly over the pulled pork. 4. Scatter the thinly sliced red onion on top of the cheese.

Baking to Perfection
