Dole Pineapple Puts the Class in Classic Hawaiian Pizza

Add Tropical and Customer Appeal With Quality DOLE Pineapple Tidbits

Westlake Village CA (February 2008)—In the pizza business, nothing succeeds like success: that’s why Hawaiian Pizza has become a menu classic. The combination of juicy, tangy pineapple and crisp, salty Canadian bacon attracts devoted fans from the deep Pacific to the far Atlantic oceans. A qualified and respected pineapple expert, Dole offers operators a wide selection of pizza-ready pineapple styles and cuts, from DOLE Tropical Gold® Pineapple and DOLE Fresh Frozen Pineapple to the ever-popular DOLE Pineapple Tidbits.

For operators looking beyond the standard pizza toppings, Dole also maintains a recipe database that includes trendy tropical pizza applications like Carnitas and Mango Pizza and two fruit-filled varieties of Fruit Empanadas—Apple and Pineapple-Mango.
