Hot Ham and Pineapple Sub Recipe

"I love homemade ham and pineapple pizza, but I don't care to make the pizza crust," relates Julie Valdez of Walnut Hill, Florida. "So I came up with this sub sandwich that has the same flavors but it a snap to put together."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated crusty French loaf
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce, divided
  • 1/3 pound sliced deli ham
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese


  • 1. Place the French loaf dough seam side down on a lightly greased baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut six slashes, about 1/2 in. deep, on top of dough. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Combine the oil, Italian seasoning and garlic salt; brush over hot bread. Cool on a wire rack for 8 minutes.
  • 2. Split bread in half lengthwise. Hollow out bottom half, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Spread 2-3 tablespoons of pizza sauce over shell; top with the ham, pineapple and cheese. Replace bread top. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Heat the remaining pizza sauce; serve with the sandwich. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"I found this recipe to be very tasty. I used a loaf of french bread from the bakery instead of using a refrigerated loaf that I would have to prepare in the oven. I also spread the pizza sauce over both sides of the bread prior to baking until the cheese melted. I did not measure any of the ingredients."
