There’s something about Hawaiian Pizza that trips our fancy, but feel free to substitute your favorite toppings and you’ll be reaching for that freezer door before you know it. We are providing a “from scratch” dough recipe, but prepared dough works fine.
The Cooking With Friends Kitchen
For the Dough:
4 cups white flour
¼ cup wheat flour
1 ½ cups warm water
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
For the Toppings:
4 cups pizza sauce
3 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
2 cups Canadian Bacon or Ham, chopped in large pieces
2 cups pineapple, chopped
You can blend the dough either by hand or with a mixer. Simply mix the two kinds of flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a small well in the center of the flour mixture. Add the yeast, honey, olive oil and water into the well and mix together quickly until a ball begins to form. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead the dough for about 5 minutes. Let the dough rise for about 30 — 40 minutes. Divide dough into 6 small pieces and roll the balls out thinly on a floured surface.
Spread pizza sauce evenly on the pizzas, then sprinkle cheese and arrange ham and pineapple.
You will first want to “fresh freeze” each pizza so that the toppings don’t stick to the tin foil. To do this, simply place uncovered on a baking sheet and freeze until hard for about 2 hours. You can then wrap each pizza well in aluminum foil, and then place in gallon-sized freezer bags. To cook, place in a preheated 400 degree oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, checking often for doneness.
