Hawaiian pizza: a delicious mix of sweet and sour

February 6, 2014

Tired of the same old pizza toppings? Hawaiian-style pizza adds a whole new set of tastes to the classic recipe.

Pizza is a dish recognized the world over, and even the most discerning palates can be tempted by the surprising taste combinations it offers. If you have a weakness for exotic or sweet and sour dishes, then Hawaiian pizza is guaranteed to please your taste buds.

A few tricks from the chef

For a successful Hawaiian pizza at home, you'll need pizza dough, good tomato sauce, quality toppings, and a little experience. If you decide to use the frozen dough that’s available at grocery and big box stores, it's recommended that you thaw the dough in the refrigerator overnight. The dough needs to be at room temperature before it can be stretched or rolled.

To make great Hawaiian pizza, prepare the ingredients in the following order: crust, sauce, cheese and toppings. Hawaiian pizzatoppings generally consist of one cup of well-drained pineapple chunks, ham slices or bacon pieces, and any cheese you fancy. Warm the oven while you stretch your Hawaiian pizza to fit a round lightly oiled and floured pan; place it in the oven and cook according to your pizza dough’s instructions.

Is my pizza ready?

  1. Check if the cheese is completely melted and slightly golden in colour.
  2. See if the edge of the crust is crispy and golden, and then gently lift the pizza to check if it is evenly cooked underneath.

If you’re ready to serve your Hawaiian pizza on a silver platter, slice it first on a flat surface, such as a cutting board, then enjoy.

Do you lack cooking skills? Are you always on the run? You don’t have enough time or interest to make your own pizza? No problem;many pizzerias now offer Hawaiian pizzas to order.

Best wine pairings

There are no fast rules when it comes to pairing food and wine. Nevertheless, for Hawaiian pizza, it'srecommended that you it with a dry white wine that is potent and woodsy. Alternatively, you might opt for a dry, robust rosé.
