The pineapple, paired with the deli ham and melty mozzarella cheese all make a great combination.You will love this cheesy, sweet and savory pizza! The sweet pineapples provide a nice flavor contrast to the savory flavors, and adds so much freshness to the pizza.
- 1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
- Two 8-ounce pieces of homemade or purchased Pizza Dough, recipe follows
- 3/4 cup homemade or purchased Marinara Sauce, recipe follows
- 1 1/3 cups grated pasteurized mozzarella
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
- 4 canned pineapple slices, coarsely chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup warm water (105 to 110 ℉)
- 2 teaspoons dry yeast
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 450 ℉. Roll out each piece of Pizza Dough into a 10- to 11-inch round. Transfer 1 dough to each prepared baking sheet.
Step 2: Spoon the Marinara Sauce over the dough, dividing equaling and leaving a 1-inch border around each pizza. Sprinkle the cheeses over the sauce.
Step 3: Arrange the pineapple pieces in a single layer over the cheeses. Sprinkle with the ham.
Step 4: Bake the pizzas until the crusts are crisp and brown on the bottom and the cheese is melted on top, about 12 minutes. Cut the pizza into wedges and serve immediately.
Step 1: Mix the warm water and yeast in a small bowl to blend. Let stand until the yeast dissolves, about 5 minutes. Mix the flour and salt in a food processor to blend. Blend in the oil.
Step 2: With the machine running, add the yeast mixture and blend just until the dough forms. Turn the dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 1 minute.
Step 3: Transfer the dough to a large oiled bowl and turn the dough to coat with the oil. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm draft-free area until the dough doubles in volume, about 1 hour. Punch the down dough and divide into 2 equal balls.
