Topped with barbecue sauce, pineapple, mozzarella, and ham, Hawaiian pizza is a tasty departure from classic red sauce-topped slices. Follow this recipe to make Hawaiian pizza with a homemade, quick-rise crust. Mild to Wild’s Original Finishing Sauce adds smokiness and a hint of spice, while pineapple adds a tropical sweetness.
Ingredients (for the crust):
- 1 cup warm water
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 packet rapid rise yeast
Ingredients (for topping the pizza):
- 3/4 cup Mild to Wild Original Finishing Sauce
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup canned pineapple chunks, patted dry
- 1 cup deli ham, cut into small squares
Combine the yeast, water, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Let rest for 5 minutes, and then add the flour, oil, and salt to the bowl. Stir to form a soft, uniform dough. Then transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface, and knead it for 5 minutes. Shape the dough into a ball, and let it rest for 10 minutes.
Stretch the dough out into a 14-inch circle, and place it on a round pizza pan. Spread the barbecue sauce over the pizza crust. Sprinkle on the cheese, pineapple, and ham.
Place the pizza in a 400 degree F oven, and bake for 18 – 22 minutes. The cheese should be melted and bubbly, and the bottom crust should be golden brown when the pizza is finished.
Let the pizza cool for about 10 minutes before slicing.
