A Low-Carb Pizza and Pork Pairing

It's no surprise that two of casual dining's favourite food offerings work so well together. Pulled-pork is an American BBQ classic that has long since become a menu favourite over here in the UK. Pizza - well, pizza is as popular as always. We thought - let's put the two together... and what a treat it is! Slow cooked tender pork, sits perfectly on a cheesed up, takeaway-style pizza. Because it's made with Lo-Dough, you don't have to fret about carbs or calories. But, you can rest assured, you'll be having a third of your recommended daily fibre and with the pork and the cheese combined, you'll be having a decent hit of protein too.

While pulled-pork can be bought from many supermarkets, it's worth knowing that a simple version can be made by slow cooking shoulder of pork at home. To do this set your oven low - Gas 3 and put a piece of seasoned pork in a roasting tray and covered with foil. You can add a drop of moisture -- water is fine... wine is better! Then leave in the oven to cook slowly over the course of around 4-5 hours. By the time it comes out you should literally be able to carve the piece of meat with a spoon. At this point, you use a fork to shred or 'pull' the pork into individual chunks and strands. It can then be dressed in a bbq sauce, hot sauce, cider vinegar - whatever you desire.
