  • Brush the entire crust surface with olive oil, and sprinkle with Italian herb mix, parsley flakes, and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese over the crust.

  • Place pineapple chunks in a bowl, and toss with remaining Parmesan cheese. Spread the pineapple chunks evenly over the crust, and sprinkle pizza with the chopped jalapeno. Top with the remaining mozzarella cheese.

  • Place the pizza directly on the oven rack, and bake until the crust is crisp and the cheese is melted and slightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

Putting jalapenos on my pizza is nothing new for me putting pineapples on my pizzas is also nothing new...but the two together I never thought about that. I loved the sweet and spicy all in one bite. My husband and son put some pepperoni and tomato sauce on theirs. I tried it that way also but I really liked it without the tomato and pepperoni...next time I make half this way so I can have more slices. Thanks Catherella for such a great idea. Read More

Love jalapenos on cheese only pizza and had never thought to use in conjunction with pineapple so I thank you so much for your pizza idea:-) You have a good recipe here however I made a couple of changes based on my own personal taste. Ditched the Italian herbs parsley and the 1/2 cup of parmesan used to coat the pineapple and instead of those ingredients switched up the flavors with the following: Reduced the mozzarella to 3 oz and mixed in 3 oz smoked gouda and 3 oz of smoked cheddar with the mozzarella. Wasn't sure if you meant fresh or canned chopped jalapenos but since I had neither on hand used 1 cup (love extra heat - LOL) of jarred sliced jalapenos. Yummo! Read More

Awesome. I followed the recipe (using previously frozen "Jay's Signature Pizza Crust...fabulous & the recipe is here on AR) w/minimal "tweaks". I did not measure the seasonings as I was making this on 1/2 a pizza...I simply brushed a bit of EVOO on the crust and sprinkled both the Italian seasoning and parsley over top (I was wary of the parsley and almost left it off but I'm glad I didn't; it works!). I used fresh pineapple and canned jalaps and added a bit of diced onion too which was a wonderful addition! I used mozzarella cheese as well as a bit of cheddar some grated fontinella and a bit of crumbled goat. I just realized when I came back to upload a photo and write this review I forgot to toss the pineapple chunks in parmesan; I WILL do this next time. And YES there most definately WILL be a next time. And a time after that. And a time after that.... Read More

This was a winner! Followed others and added pepperoni and onions to it as well. Also used refrigerated chopped pickled jalapenos instead of the fresh. I didn't measure anything just did it all to taste. We loved the flavor combos going on here. The only thing I may change next time is to use pineapple tidbits instead of the chunks for better distribution. This is a definite keeper! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I maded this recipe as stated except that I subbed the pizza crust for a sliced french baguette. I also scaled the recipe to a smaller portion so therefore just eyeballed all the ingredients. This recipe is really really good and I wished I had more when my serving was gone! Definitely a keeper for me! Thanks for sharing this recipe Catherella1! Read More
