Hawaiian Pizza Recipe

Hawaiian Pizza

One of Andrew’s classmates and a Girl Loves Pizza follower visited us recently for dinner. I remember that Amanda made a comment on the Girl Loves Pizza Facebook page after I  posted about my Virginia Ham Pizza. She said that one of her favorite pizzas is ham and pineapple, commonly known as a Hawaiian pizza.

I have never eaten nor prepared a Hawaiian pizza, so with Amanda coming for dinner I thought this was my time to try it. For this pizza, I made my first attempt at preparing my Uncle Al’s homemade pizza sauce. It was just as easy as he said and the few samples I took before spreading it on the dough tasted amazing! I also made my first attempt at slicing a whole pineapple. It wasn’t quite as easy as preparing the sauce, but the samples of this were delicious as well.

Andrew grilled the pineapple for a few minutes on each side, then I cut it into bite sized chunks. I diced ham into small pieces. After pre-baking the crust I spread on my homemade pizza sauce, sprinkled on mozzarella cheese, added the pineapple and ham and let it bake for 10 minutes.

I was a little nervous about using fruit on a pizza but the sweetness of the pineapple complimented the savory flavor of the sauce. This pizza was amazingly good! Amanda, a self proclaimed foodie, said my Hawaiian pizza was the best pizza she has ever had!
