Hawaiian Pizza Recipe

When a friend ordered this pizza in a restaurant, I was skeptical. But after trying a slice. I was hooked! My family is thrilled that I serve this at least twice a month.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3 to 3-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pizza sauce
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup diced fully cooked ham
  • 3/4 cup pineapple tidbits, drained

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar and salt; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan.
  • 3. Spread with pizza sauce; sprinkle with cheese, ham and pineapple. Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until the crust is browned and cheese is melted. Yield: 12 servings.
