Hawaiian Pizza

Weeknight meals may often pose the problem of needing to get a meal on the table in a short amount of time.  I came up with this recipe as a quick solution to that problem tonight.  I had delicious ham left over from Easter dinner that we had with my parents.  My parents gave us quite a bit of ham to bring home with us and enjoy this week.  The ham came in handy tonight.  :)  This recipe is not an exact one, so have fun with it!

Hawaiian Pizza

  • 1 - 2 cups of ham, diced
  • 1 medium purple onion, diced
  • 1/2 - 1 cup of BBQ sauce (Your favorite brand will work!)
  • half a can of diced pineapple, drained
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups cheese (Use up odds and ends from your refrigerator.  I had a bit of mozzarella, cheddar, and Colby Jack, so I used up all of my little bits of all three.)
  • 1 tube of Pillsbury pizza dough
  1. Preheat your oven according to the pizza dough directions.  Unroll the pizza dough and spread it evenly on a cookie sheet.  Prebake your pizza dough according to the directions on the tube of dough.
  2. While your crust is prebaking, heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat.  Sauté the diced onions until they are tender.  Add the ham to the skillet and stir.
  3. After prebaking, use the back of a spoon to spread the BBQ sauce over the pizza crust.
  4. Spread the ham and onion mixture over the pizza, along with the pineapple.
  5. Top the pizza with a sprinkling of the cheese(s).
  6. Bake your pizza according to the directions on the tube of dough.  I baked mine for about another ten minutes.
  7. Slice your pizza and enjoy!  :)
Happy Cooking!
