Bacon Pineapple Pizza



Here is my homemade version of a Hawaiian Pizza. I made four pizzas the other night, one to please each and every picky eater at my house. There was Hawaiian, plain cheese, extra pepperoni and then a white pizza. I figured I would be the only person to eat the bacon & pineapple one so I only made one.

Wrong move! It was the first pizza tray to be empty. Even my most picky eater gobbled this up!


The first five ingredients are for the dough which will make enough for 2 pizza crusts. The toppings that I listed below were used on just 1 of the crusts so you will need to double the toppings if making more than one pizza or top the second crust with your own favorite toppings!



Bacon & Pineapple Pizza


1 pkg. yeast
2 cups warm water
2 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. oil
5 cups flour


Toppings:

1 lb. bacon, fried & crumbled
1 jar pizza or spaghetti sauce
20 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
8-12 oz. shredded cheese (mozz., colby jack, etc.)


Fry bacon & place on paper towels to absorb extra grease.
Drain pineapple.
In a large bowl, mix yeast & water.
Add sugar & salt.
Stir in oil.
Slowly add flour.
Mix well. (I use my Kitchen-Aid mixer with a dough hook)
Grease hands and form dough into a ball.
Place dough back in bowl, cover with a towel and let rise 5-10 minutes.
Divide dough into 2 balls.
Take each ball and spread out onto a pizza pan.
Top pizza with pizza or spaghetti sauce.
Sprinkle with cheese.
Top with half of the crumbled bacon.
Use hands to "sprinkle" half of the pineapple over top of bacon.
Sprinkle the remaining bacon and pineapple on top.
Bake in oven at 350° for 20 minutes or till crust is browned to your own liking.

Enjoy!
