Here is the first of two recipes using my homemade wheat & honey pizza crust! This is a Luau Pizza. Don't be afraid of the BBQ sauce- it's really good (my homemade recipe will be coming soon- I promise).
Pineapple is rich in Vitamin C, Bromelain, Manganese, and Thiamin (B1). Some people swear that pineapple aids in digestion, however no results have been published to provide that evidence.
1/3 wheat & honey pizza crust recipe
1/3 cup favorite BBQ sauce
1/3 cup favorite marinara sauce (I used one with vegetable chunks-highly recommended)
1 clove garlic, pressed and finely minced
4 oz mozzarella fresca balls, halved
6 slices Canadian bacon, sliced into strips
1/2 cup pineapple chunks, sliced thin
1/2 cup finely sliced red onion (optional)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roll out crust thin, to 12" x 14-16". Lay on a baking sheet.
Mix barbecue sauce and marinara sauce. Ladle onto crust, spread thin, and sprinkle with minced garlic. Next, layer sliced Canadian bacon, pineapple chunks, red onion, and mozzarella ball halves.
Bake for ~18-20 minutes on middle rack, or until crust is crisp and cheese is melted. Slice into 12 slices.
