Hawaiian PIZZA

Hawaiian PIZZA

If you think pineapple isn’t an acceptable topping for pizza, we’ll change your mind.

This topic even causes online discussions for and against pineapple even among movie stars and sportsmen but despite this, Hawaiian pineapple pizza remains incredibly popular.

Fans of this pizza say they like the combination of sweet and savory flavors that work together and create an irresistible flavor combination.

The pineapple, paired with prosciutto and stringy mozzarella makes a unique e particular combination of flavours all in one bite and we’re sure you’l love it.

The sweet pineapple offers a nice flavor contrast to the savory flavors and adds so much crispness to the pizza.

You’ll love making Hawaiian pizza at home because you can use freshly cut pineapple for the topping. In fact, using fresh pineapple instead of canned makes a huge difference.

Use ready-made pizza dough or make your own and add bacon too, it’s not a traditional Hawaiian pizza topping, but everything goes with bacon!

Rolling Pin


Preheat the oven to 475 F (250°C).

step 1

Prepare the ingredients: Peel the pineapple with a sharp knife, then remove the fruit from its core and cut into 1/2-inch squares.

Cut the onion into wedges, then cut into 1/2-inch lengths.

Put the olive oil, bacon and onion in a large cast iron pan and fry for 1 minute then add the pineapple.

Season with salt and pepper and roast until tender and caramelized (about 10 minutes depending on the size of the pineapple).

step 2

If using ready-made pizza dough, remove the ball from the refrigerator about 60 minutes before baking the pizza.

Lightly flour the work surface, place the ball of dough and flip to coat both sides moderately with the flour.

To shape the pizza, if you prefer a puffier crust, shape the dough with your hands and leave a puffy edge if you prefer thin pizza, roll it out with a rolling pin.

Transfer the disc of dough to a lightly oiled pan and run your fingers around the perimeter to adhere.

step 3

Create your own pizza assembly station: have tomato sauce, mozzarella, parmesan, ham and roasted pineapple with onion and bacon on hand.

Spread the pasta with the tomato sauce, leveling it with the back of A spoon, then add the toppings: ham, pineapple, roasted onion and bacon, Parmesan and mozzarella.

Then put the pizza pan in the oven and cook for about 15-20 minutes at 250°C (475°F), then take a quick look at the pizza to gauge its progress.

The last two minutes turn on the grill and finish the pizza until the cheese is completely melted and the crust is golden brown.

Cut into slices and serve.

You can keep Hawaiian pizza in the fridge for up to 1 day. Warm it up in the oven or microwave before eating.


Using fresh pineapple makes a big difference and adds a touch of freshness without artificial flavors.

Don’t crowd the pan with the pineapple or you won’t get much browning.

To keep the pizza from getting soggy, brush it with olive oil before adding the pizza sauce.

Bake your pizza at 450 or 475 degrees F, at least. Even better, at 500 degrees F, if your oven and pans allow it.
