LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Here is a island spin on a regular pizza.
ZaZa's and Big Orange's owner Scott McGehee shows Ashley, Alyse and Tom how to make a Hawaiian pizza at home.
Basic Pizza Dough
1 1/2 c. (about 6 oz.) shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 c. (about 6 oz.) grated Gruyere cheese
Cornmeal, if using a pizza peel
About 1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 lb. Canadian bacon or baked ham, cut into sm. pieces
3 c. chopped fresh pineapple or 3 cans (8 oz. each) chunk pineapple packed in juice, well drained
6 green onions, chopped (or chives)
Freshly ground black pepper
Prepare the dough and preheat the oven. Mix the cheeses in a bowl and set aside.
Shape the pizza dough and brush all over with vegetable oil, then top with the cheeses, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edges. Top the cheeses with the Canadian bacon or ham, pineapple chunks, onions and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle evenly with vegetable oil.
Transfer the pie to the preheated baking surface and bake as directed in the basic recipe. Remove from the oven to a cutting tray or board and lightly brush the crust with vegetable oil. Slice and serve immediately.
