Dummett scored his first goal for the club in their draw with Liverpool.
Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "It was ironic that he came on. He'd had preparation, but I didn't expect him to do his little hop, skip and jump after he scored.
"His family will be proud of him. We've had him since he was nine so it is great to get one through."
