This is my final recipe made using the leftover Ham from Easter. (No, we didn’t finish it all… note to self for next year: 10 pounds of Ham is too much!) Making Hawaiian Pizza was Charles’s idea, he thought it was fun to come up with new ways to use up the leftover ham. I love making pizza, it is one of the few times Charles will prepare dinner with me. Pizza only takes about 10 minutes of preparation time and 25 minutes of cook time, and it is pretty idiot proof.
The recipe below has been adjusted to make an entire pizza. We made two different half pizzas when we made this. That is another great thing about pizza – you can easily split it in half and make two different types!
You will need:
1 pound of fresh Pizza Dough (available at Whole Foods)
3/4 cup Marinara Sauce (I used a jar of Whole Foods sauce)
3/4 cup Ham, chopped into bit size pieces
1 cup Mozzarella Cheese (I used fresh)
3/4 cup Pineapple (I used canned slices)
1/4 cup Shredded Pecorino or Parmesan (or similar salty cheese)
*These amounts can be adjusted based on personal preferences
Butter a 10 x 15 inch pan (or a pan of a similar size), and stretch out the dough on the pan. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. I like to use butter to grease the pan because I think it makes the crust a bit crisper.
Pour the marinara sauce over the pizza crust and use a spoon to spread it out. Then add the ham, mozzarella, and pineapple on top. Top with some shredded pecorino or parmesan.
Bake for about 25 minutes, until the cheese is bubbling and the dough has browned.
