Tips

  • Use fresh pineapple.
  • After chopping the pineapple, dry it lightly. This will prevent the pizza from getting wet.
  • Chop the ingredients to an equal size. In this way, all the ingredients will be cooked evenly.
  • Add the pineapples last. In this way, the pizza dough does not get wet.
  • You can use homemade or ready-made pizza dough.
  • You can use bacon instead of ham.
  • To make the recipe vegan, use vegan cheese. Skip the ham or add mushrooms.
  • To make this recipe keto, you can make whole wheat, cauliflower, or zucchini pizza dough.
  • If you don't have a pizza stone, you can also use a baking tray.
  • You can also use barbecue sauce instead of margarita pizza sauce.
  • You can use any kind of melted cheese. Cheeses such as mozzarella, cheddar, provolone or gouda are ideal. You can check out our "Best Cheeses For Pizza" article.
  • Do not put too many ingredients on the pizza. This can prevent the pizza from cooking.
  • To prevent the pizza from getting wet, apply olive oil to the pizza dough. Grease the dough before spreading the pizza sauce.
  • Before adding the sauces, poke holes in the dough with a fork. This prevents air bubbles from forming in the pizza.
