This is one of our favorite pizzas. It's great with regular pizza sauce as well, but the barbecue gives it a delicious new twist which compliments the ham and pineapple perfectly.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  • Add the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, honey, olive oil and salt to the yeast mixture; stir well to combine. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

  • Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough out into a 14 inch diameter circle and place on a 14 inch pizza pan which has been lightly dusted with cornmeal or lightly oiled. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a small bowl, combine ham and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce; set aside.

  • Melt butter in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic in butter, stirring occasionally, until onions are brown and caramelized, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in ham and pineapple.

  • Spread remaining 6 tablespoons barbecue sauce over pizza dough. Top with half of the cheeses. Spread on ham mixture. Top with remaining cheese.

  • Bake in heated oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until crust is lightly browned and cheese completely melted. Let pizza sit for 5 minutes before slicing.

So yummy! I followed the directions exact except: I didn't have any gouda cheese so I just left that out (although I'm sure it was delicious too!) I also had a green bell pepper that was about to go bad (I can't stand throwing out food!) so I chopped that up and browned with the onion. Yum! I will definitely make this again! Read More

This was good but not great although I normally love Hawaiian pizza. The whole wheat crust was not as good as a regular type crust. I also found that it cooked faster than indicated. It was done in 14 minutes. Read More

This was WONDERFUL...my husband is a chef and usually when I try a new recipe he picks it apart with all the changes he would make. He couldn't quit saying.."This is so good I wouldn't change anything." However I did use store bought crust and I used canadian bacon instead of ham (it was cheaper!) Read More

Fantastic! I added some garlic and basil to the crust. I also chopped some red pepper to put in with the onion. The dough didn't rise very well and after cooking the sauce sunk in to the crust a little too much but the flavor was the greatest. Read More

Two thumbs up! It reminded us of our trip to Maui. We especially liked the gouda cheese - it added a nice touch. The dough was tasty - but came out thinner that I'd like. Read More

This was good but very rich. The crust was tasty and pretty easy to work with but not my favorite texture ever though that could be user error. I used half the mozzarella ham and butter and found this to be a bit too rich for my tastes - I would probably skip the caramelizing step and just plop those onions on the very top to dry-roast when it baked. I found this pizza to be slightly overdone at 15 minutes using 425 temp. Thank you for sharing your recipe this was a great new way to use up Easter ham! Read More

I can't give this a five because I changed it so much! But with my alterations...i give it a 5! I was looking for a quicker recipe so I used refrigerated pizza dough instead. The bbq sauce I used was raspberry chipotle and I just put however much I wanted rather than sticking with any measurements. Lastly the cheese I used was Fontina (it was on sale!) instead of Gouda still mixed with the mozzarella cheese. With all of these alterations...it was magnificent!! Will definitely make again:) Read More

Used this recipe for the toppings only and used Jay's Signature Pizza Crust. I made three different pizzas and this was my family's favorite. The combination of flavors is fabulous. I left out the Gouda but otherwise made as directed. Will make again soon i'm sure. Read More
