About this pizza

This homemade pizza is fun and my kids ‘ absolute favorite. You can besides make it semi-homemade with ready to use boughten pizza boodle and sauce. But, I love making everything from rub. Do you know why ?

There are three components to this pizza :

  1. The dough – Today, I am using my no-knead pizza dough. But, you can also use either my classic pizza dough or the overnight pizza dough. This makes a soft chewy base with crusty edges.
  2. The sauce – I’m using my quick pizza sauce in 5 mins with canned tomato. But, I have two other tomato sauce recipes you can use: my tomato sauce with fresh tomatoes or my marinara sauce with fresh tomatoes.
  3. The toppings – This is an Hawaiian pizza, so of course, you want to use pineapple chunks and ham, in addition to a sprinkle of Parmesan and Mozzarella.

The procedure of making this pizza is besides childlike and slowly .

  • Make the dough – 10 mins
  • Let the dough rise – 4 to 6 hours up to 24 hours
  • Divide the dough and let it rest – 15 mins
  • Preheat oven – 20 mins before
  • Roll the pizza dough – 15 mins
  • Add topping and cheese – bake – 15 mins

And, if you do n’t want to use a tomato sauce, you can besides make it a white pizza with a egg white sauce. And yes, pineapple and ham over white sauce are absolutely delicious. Read my tips on making better homemade pizza .

Ingredients and substitutes

  1. Flour – You can use bread flour instead of all-purpose flour. I am using plain all-purpose, which works great.
  2. Yeast – I’m not a slave to any particular brand. But, I use instant dry yeast as compared to fresh or instant yeast. You can add the yeast directly to your flour without testing it. But, I’m old school, I like to use the safe and stress-free method. Therefore, I still let my yeast activate first.
  3. Water – The temperature of the water you use for yeast has to be warm – not hot, nor cold. Almost the temperature of the liquid you give a baby. Approximately 105 to 115 F.
  4. Sugar – The sugar here is not for sweetness but to feed the yeast. This helps the yeast grow and nurture the bread. So, don’t omit it, and no, it will not make your dough sweet. And, if you don’t fancy sugar, try honey or agave syrup.
  5. Oil – Like sugar, oil is also food for our yeast. It helps the yeast grew and develop flavor. We also use oil to brush the edges, which gives us a nice crisp edge.
  6. Salt – Use fine grain salt, which will dissolve in the dough easily.
  7. Pineapple – I am using fresh pineapple since they are in season. And yet, canned pineapple will also work well. Make sure to drain the slices well to prevent making your pizza soggy.
  8. Ham – I’m using ham slices because that’s what I get here. And yet, you can also cut a big chunk of ham into cubes.

Step by step instructions

Prepare the dough

  • In a bowl, combine flour and salt – and set aside.
  • In a measuring cup – measure the warm water, add olive oil, sugar, and yeast. Combine well.
  • Next, add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture.
  • Use a wooden spoon or spatula to combine it well making sure no dry flour is left on the bottom.
  • This is a very wet dough, so don’t try touching it with your hand.
  • Cover with a clean kitchen cloth or plastic wrap.
  • Let it rest on the countertop for an hour.
  • Then, place in the fridge for 4 hours – up to 12 hours. I like to leave it overnight.
  • Tip – Make sure the dough is well covered with plastic wrap so it does not dry out in the fridge.

Divide, rest, and roll

  • Preheat oven with pizza stone for at 200 C / 390 F for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge.
  • The dough will have become three times its size, but will still be very soft, sticky, and elastic with lots of air pockets.
  • Dust your work surface generously with flour.
  • Then, remove the dough on to the floured work surface. It is best to use a bench scraper or spatula.
  • Divide the dough with a bench scraper. This dough makes three (for 3 x 12-inch thin-crust pizzas).
  • Tip – Let the dough rest again for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Then, using a rolling pin, roll one piece of dough to about 12 inches (see video).
  • Next, transfer pizza to a pizza peel, pizza pan, or baking tray. The video below uses a pizza peel.
  • Tip – Place parchment paper on a pizza peel (parchment is less messy than cornmeal or flour).
  • Tip – Let the base rest for 5 to 10 minutes – this will proof the base just a little which makes those edges puffy (optional).
