Whoever was first to combine ham & pineapple was a brilliant person. Taking an Easter ham and slathering in brown sugar, and coating it in pineapple slices, leads to a sweet & salty perfect meal every time. This was then copied in sandwiches, and of course on top of pizza.
I’m a big fan of pizza due to its limitless topping capabilities. You can add just about anything to a pizza, and it will taste at least pretty good, and at best mind-blowingly delicious.
The “Hawaiian” combo of flavors is a pizza natural. Some are die-hard lovers, some may have never heard of such a crazy thing. Either way, give it a try yourself and see if you don’t have a new favorite.
- 1 roll pizza dough (or make your own)
- 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
- 1/2 can pineapple chunks or rings
- 4-5 slices ham deli meat or cubes
- Optional: swiss or white american cheese
Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 450. If you have a pizza stone, great. If you don’t, a cookie sheet works just as well, or any oven-safe pan.
Step 3: Layer on your ham slices, pineapple slices, and pour on the sauce. Cover with a thin layer of cheese if desired.
Step 4: Bake at 450 for 25-30 minutes, until dough is brown and crispy on the edges. Dig in!
