Hawaiian Pizza

You can use store bought dough, Boboli crust or follow the recipe below to make your own crust.

½ jar tomato sauce
½ pound mozzarella (shredded)
2-3 slices of ham (chopped)
½ cup pineapple chunks (or tidbits just make sure to press the liquid out)

2 ¼ tsp yeast
½ tsp brown sugar
1 ½ cup warm water
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp olive Oil
2 ½ cup flour

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. After a few minutes, stir in salt and oil and gradually mix in the flour. Mix until it begins to form a ball (add more flour if necessary). Take out the ball and knead on a floured counter. Once it is smooth lace back in the bowl, cover it with a cloth and let rise. Once it has doubled in size (after about an hour) place on the floured counter and roll into a circle.

Bake at 375 until just before browning. (It will be cooked but still white)

Remove from the oven and top with sauce, cheese, ham and pineapple.

Sauteed onions and bacon bits are also great on this pizza.
