Hawaiian pizza is definitely one of my favorite types of pizza. There is something about the savory-sweet combination that I really love. The first time I tried it, I thought there was no way I was going to like it. Pineapple on pizza? Ok....whatever.... But.... after one bite..... I was hooked! Funny that Chris and I have been together for 5 years and I just found out that he adores Hawaiian pizza as much as I do! How does 5 years go by without that being common knowledge? Oh well, at least I know now and we'll be enjoying this pizza again soon!
Grilled Hawaiian Pizza
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
7-10 slices of Canadian bacon
3-4 pineapple slices
1 ball homemade pizza dough
3/4 cup homemade pizza sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat grill to 400 degrees F. Quickly the Canadian bacon slices and all of the pineapple slices. (I grilled everything to give it that extra depth of flavor, you can skip this step if you choose). Grill just long enough to give them a little color, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from grill and allow to cool a bit. Chop the pineapple and set aside.
Tear a large square of aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray. Stretch the dough to the size and shape you desire and brush with olive oil. Place the aluminum foil with dough on to the grill and grill one side until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from grill and flip the dough. Spread the pizza sauce over the cooked side of the dough. Top with Canadian bacon, chopped pineapple, and the cheese. Return to grill, but this time over indirect heat until the cheese has melted about half way. Move to direct heat and allow the dough to become golden brown, about another 3-5 minutes. Remove from grill and allow to cool before slicing. Enjoy!
