The common pig may not look like much—always snorting and snuffling and wallowing in mud—but without it, pizza as we know it wouldn’t be nearly as good. The sweet, salty, smoky flavor of a well-prepared ham lends itself perfectly to the pizza palette. Not to mention that ham and cheese go together like yin and yang (or maybe Thelma and Louise). Here’s a great Spicy Hawaiian Pizza recipe from Carando!


1 12” thin-crust pizza dough, docked
¼ c. spicy barbecue sauce
½ c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
½ c. pineapple, ¼” diced and grilled
¼ c. green onions, chopped
1 c. quartered ham

Directions (for one pizza)

Place dough on an oiled pizza screen. Spread spicy barbecue sauce evenly across the dough, leaving a ½” border along the edge. Top with mozzarella cheese, pineapple, green onions and quartered ham. Bake at 425°F for 10 to 12 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
