Pizza Dough Method
Purchase a premade pizza base at your local store, or if you have time, make your own homemade dough following the simple steps below. Some shops even carry pizza dough balls.
- Whisk the lukewarm water and yeast in a plastic or glass jug. Let mixture stand for five minutes.
- Add salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow well in the middle and gently pour the liquid yeast mixture and oil.
- Using a spatula, or your hands, mix the dough really well until smooth. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead for five minutes.
- Lightly oil a bowl, and place dough in it and cover with plastic wrap. Leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes to an hour, or until it doubles in size.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for another 5 minutes or until smooth.
- Sprinkle a little flour on the bench before rolling to prevent dough from sticking.
- Divide the dough into balls, and roll out bases to desired size.

Preparing Hawaiana Pizza
Preheat your kitchen oven to approximately 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone (if you have one) or on a metal tray for the kitchen oven.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza oven, roll out to be smaller than your pizza peel.
First, spread the sauce around. This pizza calls for Tomato Sauce. Spread the Tomato Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or the blunt side of a knife.
You should start by adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
The toppings to include on this pizza are;
- Smoked Ham
This pizza is delicious by itself, yet why not with other pizzas as well?
Put the Hawaiana pizza in oven, and set alarm for ten minutes.
After 10 minutes, open oven and look at pizza.
The pizza should be done within roughly 15 minutes. Always cook to personal tastes.
A contentious pizza topping, Pineapples origins comes from the Brazilian rainforests, where in spread across south and Central America. In 1493, when Columbus landed there, the Spaniards called it “Pina” because it looks like a pinecone.
Recent studies have shown that the minerals and vitamins that appear naturally within Pineapple may strengthen your bones and reduce viral and bacterial infections.
When making Hawaiana Pizza, I suggest you just use what you have available, without spending any money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
A pizza stone really helps create a fantastic tasting pizza at home. Learn how to clean and care for your Pizza Stone.
Having quality, air tight dough storage containers is a must.
Glass Measuring Jug
A good quality, heavy glass measuring jug with clear marking for various measures to me is a must. I hate taking chances with portions, so it’s an important tool for me.
The salty, smoky flavor of the meat pairs perfectly with a variety of sauces and cheeses. It can be used as an ingredient in classic pies such as Hawaiian or Margherita, or it can be featured as the main topping on its own specialty pizza.
When buying smoked ham for pizza, look for high-quality products that have been cured and smoked by a reputable company. For example, you may want to look for hams that have been labeled “dry-cured” or “smoke-cured,” which have undergone more extensive curing processes than regular hams.
Here are a few storage tips, if you have any dough or pizza left over after the meal.
Store in the fridge
Leftover slices of pizza may be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Warm in the center of a 450 degree F oven for approximately 6 minutes, on a pizza stone if possible, until heated through. See our article on reheating pizza for more.
You can store leftover pizza in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat from frozen as directed above until heated through.
