Cubano Pizza and Banana Pudding Pizza


We crafted some interesting pizzas at Wassi’s Sunshine State Eggfest. One of the greatest parts of cooking in the Pizza-Porta is trying new combinations. We started playing around with some of the ingredients from Lanes BBQ in the booth next door. We love to set up next to Lanes because they always make fantastic food with their rubs/sauces. After putting these two pizzas together on the fly and serving, we had a ton of requests for the recipe.

Cubano Pizza


Lanes Cubano Seasoning seasoned pork belly,

Double smoked ham

Dill pickles for a nice briny finish.

Lanes Southbound bbq sauce as a base

Swiss Cheese (we added some Asiago as well)

Pizza Crust

1 Pizza dough (we used our go-to dough - recipe here


Stretch crust as usual. Spread the Southbound mustard sauce to cover the crust followed by chunks of cheese and the pork and ham. Cook until edges are brown as shown below (3-4 minutes in a Pizza-Porta). Garnish with pickle and additional Cubano rub to taste.

Banana Pudding Pizza

Who would have thought this would be so good?!

Banana pudding:

  • 1` box Nilla wafers (Crumbled for topping)

  • 1-8oz. package Cream Cheese

  • 2-3 Bananas,

  • 1-12oz.can Sweetened Condensed milk

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1-5oz. box instant vanilla pudding

  • 1-12oz.container frozen whipped Cream, thawed

    In a separate container Blend milk with pudding & mix well. Beat cream cheese & 
    condensed milk together in a stand mixer until smooth; fold into whipped 
    topping. Add pudding mixture, stirring until well blended. Chop bananas and add.

Pork Belly:

  • Grill a 5lb pork-belly, seasoned with Lanes BBQ Caramel Sea salt rub (you will have some left over since you only need a sprinkle - you will thank me later ) You could substitute bacon here.

Pizza Crust

1 Pizza dough (we used our go-to dough - recipe here


Start by Par-baking the crust. Spread a pat of butter and place the crust in the Pizza-Porta for about 1.5 minutes until it starts to bubble and brown. It should be firm when you remove it from the oven. Pierce any huge bubbles along the way so that it stays relatively flat.

Spoon or pipe the banana pudding around the crust about 1/4 inch thick. (we worked around bubbles so they gave the slices a nice crunch.

Sprinkle the pizza with diced up pieces of the porkbelly

Place back into the oven for another minute of two - watch closely so that that pudding does not scorch.

Pull the pizza from the oven and sprinkle with broken up bits of Nilla Wafer and a sprinkle of the Carmel sea-salt rub.
