Gourmet Pineapple Pizza



  • 1- 14 Whole Grain Organic crust or substitute with your preference
  • 1 c. fresh tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 c. grated 20 percent MF Mozzarella
  • 1/4 c. crumbled Stilton or choose any sharp cheese i.e.: Asiago, feta, sharp Provolone
  • 2 c. Dole pizza cut pineapple
  • 6 strips of Smokey Canadian bacon
  • 1/4 lb. of sliced quality ham like Proscuitto or Pancetta
  • 1/4 lb. of quality Italian Salami like Sopressata piccante or Capicollo picante
  • 1/3 c. of sauted broccoli rabe (saut with olive oil and garlic and pinch of sea salt)
  • 1/4 c. small slivers red sweet peppers
  • 1/4 c. julienne radicchio

Procedure: Take your well-risen crust and spread your sauce to 1/2 inch from edge. Next, spread your mozzarella evenly and sporadically spread the Stilton. Next, take your meats and roll them up and push into cheese to hold them up and place evenly around pizza. Then take five to eight pieces of pineapple and place between every piece of meat in a mounded fashion. In the centre of the pizza, make a mound that is three to four times bigger than the other pineapple mounds. This is your centrepiece.

Now take the sauted broccoli rabe and make it into a ball and place in approximately five points on pizza. Spread your red sweet pepper and julienne radicchio evenly. Sprinkle your herbs, chili flakes and extra virgin olive oil when pizza comes out of the oven. Cook for 15 minutes at 500-525. Do not cut pizza until customer has viewed it because it will be difficult to cut and maintain its appearance. Enjoy!
